Please join us for our next chat in #readers_corner at 8:30 P.M. (EDST) October 19, 2019  -  00:30  A.M. (GMT) August 18 -- for a discussion of "The Water Ghost of Harrowby Hall" by John Kenderick Bangs. 

This story is an old style ghost story with all the trimmings.  John Bangs, an accomplished writer of stories as well as novels, spent the latter years of 19th century working as an editor for Harpers Magazines (at that time he also served as the chief of the humor sections of all three of Harpers publications:  Harper's Magazine, Harper's Bazaar, and Harper's Young People.)

This selection is a fine example of his writing, and it provides us with a back story on the ghost as well as a well crafted method of elimination of the problem.  I think you will enjoy it.

The story is available on line at:  http://www.eastoftheweb.com/short-stories/UBooks/WateGhos.shtml
