Under Allan's instructions, the confession is left to be opened by his son once he comes of age. Nineteen years later, the son of the murdered man, also Allan Armadale, rescues a man of his own age.Ozias Midwinter.

The Reverend promises not to disclose their relation to one another, and the young men become close companions.
