At night the frail Parson Dr Syn becomes the vicious Scarecrow, stopping at nothing to get the cotraband through, crossing the moorland and dikes, riding his huge black horse Gehenna painted with luminous paint, to add to the 'folklore' of the mystery of the Scarecrow. Only Mipps his faithful assistant knows the true identity of the Scarecrow. The Excise men finally get a man to match the Scarecrow and Mr Faulks arrives in Dymchurch with an old sailor that Syn multilated in his days on the sea as Captain Clegg (told in Dr Syn on the high seas). Recognition of the old Sailor sends Syn into morbid moods, Mipps knows his master is worried about the visitor from the past
