I have not cared to live in Centerville Chase myself since my grand-aunt, the dowager duchess of Bolton was. . . 'frightened' . . . into a fit. A fit from which she never fully recovered. I feel bound to tell you, Mr. and Mrs. Otis that the ghost has been seen by several living members of my family. None of you, I fear, realize the gravity of the situation. Sir Simon is not to be taken lightly.
Oh, she believes in what she says. Up to a point. I bet there isn't a manor house, or a castle, or a. . . chase, in England without a resident ghost floating around. Helps sell property. Because we're Americans, Lady Canterville probably thinks a ghost will cinch the deal. She's awfully anxious to sell the place. Take my word for it. If there's a ghost here, it will turn out to be a whistle of wind in the bell tower.
