On April 1923, Jeremiah sent a letter begging Patrick to return to Ireland and investigate the strange happenings on the Covenant Estate. Because of Patrick's nomadic lifestyle, he did not actually receive the letter for months afterwards, and only finally made it to the Estate a six months later, at some point in October 1923. By then, Jeremiah was bedridden, and his undead siblings were seemingly hellbent on infiltrating the Covenant Manor and murdering him. Once Patrick arrives at the Estate, Jeremiah fills him in on what has happened prior to his arrival, and begs him to investigate, to find a way to put his brothers and sisters to rest, and break the curse once and for all.
