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

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