The Ghost in the Dining Room

Monday, October 26, 2015


Loretta reports:

Continuing with my somewhat Halloween-themed posts, I offer a ghost story, as reported in Ackermann’s Repository of 1822.

Unlike other entries in the pages preceding it—humorous letters to the editor probably written by the editor or another regular contributor—this is short, and rather poignant, I thought.

I really enjoyed this story! What a great twist at the end (especially as a cat lover- I can just imagine this happening!)

A fantastic story. A little sad, but still funny. What a clever old tom cat he was. I hope they took his hints and gave him something soft for his bedding.
