Description

Excerpt from Little Classics, Vol. 8: Mystery; The Ghost, the Four-Fifteen Express, the Signal-Man, the Haunted Ships, a Raft That No Man Made, the Invisible Princess, the Advocate's Wedding Day, the Birthmark All this was many years ago. Since then it has been reported that a ghost was seen there one bitter Christmas eve, two or three years back. The twilight was already in the street; but the evening lamps were not yet lighted in the windows, and the roofs and chimney-tops were still distinct in the last clear light of the dropping day. It was light enough, however, for one to read easily, from the Opposite sidewalk, Dr. C. Renton, in black letters, on the silver plate of a door, not far from the Gothic portal of the Swedenborgian church. Near this door stood a misty figure, whose sad, spectral eyes floated on vacancy, and whose long, shadowy white hair lifted like an airy weft in the streaming wind. That was the ghost! It stood near the door a long time. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
