The trouble with Harrowby Hall was that it was haunted. What was worse, the ghost did not merely appear at the bedside of the person who saw it, but insisted on staying there for one hour before it would disappear. There she would stand until everything about her was thoroughly drenched. It never appeared except on Christmas Eve, and then only as the clock was striking twelve. The owners of Harrowby Hall had done their best to rid themselves of the damp and dewy lady, but she still rose up out of the best bedroom floor at midnight. They had tried stopping the clock, so the ghost would not know when it was midnight; but she made her appearance just the same.
