Hester never rid herself of the scarlet letter, it was a symbol not of shame but sorrow.

"...she had returned, therefore, and resumed,—of her own free will, for not the sternest magistrate of that iron period would have imposed it,—resumed the symbol of which we have related so dark a tale. Never afterwards did it quit her bosom."
