Unabridged Christmas Ghost Story
A humorous ghost story in which a particularly damp apparition appears on Christmas Eve.
“Far be it from me to be impolite to a woman, madam, but I’m hanged if it wouldn’t please me better if you’d stop these infernal visits of yours to this house. Go sit out on the lake, if you like that sort of thing; soak the water-butt, if you wish; but do not, I implore you, come into a gentleman’s house and saturate him and his possessions in this way. It is damned disagreeable.”
Performed by Susie Berneis.
