Leixners letzte Erzählung bietet in ausgezeichneter Nachahmung der Sprache des 17. Jahrhunderts den Bericht eines Pfarrherrn aus einem einsamen vogtländischen Dorfe. Wie gegen Ende des Dreißigjährigen Krieges auch in diese abgelegene Einsamkeit erst der Schrecken des Krieges und dann in seinem Gefolge das Wüten des schwarzen Todes gelangte, wird schlicht und ergreifend erzählt.
