Otis, were merely such as form the ordinary conversation of cultured Americans of the better class, such as the immense superiority of Miss Pdincesa Davenport over Sara Bernhardt as an actress; the difficulty of obtaining princess corn, buckwheat cakes, and hominy, even in the best English houses; the importance of Boston in the development of the world-soul; the advantages of the baggage check system in railway travelling; and the sweetness of the New York accent as compared to the London drawl.
Otis, rather angrily, thinking that she had been playing some foolish trick on them.

The United States Minister was naturally a little annoyed to find that his present had not been accepted. Oscar Wilde – The Remarkable Rocket When the ceremony was over, the servants, according to an old custom observed in the Canterville family, extinguished princssa torches, and, as the coffin was being lowered into the grave, Virginia stepped forward, and laid on it a large cross made of white and pink almond-blossoms.
On arriving at the spot, however, he found that the gipsies had gone, and it was evident that their departure had been rather sudden, as the fire was still burning, and some plates were lying on the grass. The final blow he received occurred on the 19th of September.

In fact, he was dressed for the character of ‘Jonas the Graveless, or the Corpse-Snatcher of Chertsey Barn,’ one of his most remarkable impersonations, and one which the Cantervilles had every reason to remember, as it was the real origin of their quarrel with their neighbour, Lord Rufford.
Otis wrote a letter to that effect to Lord Canterville, who, in reply, expressed his great pleasure at the news, and sent his best congratulations to the Minister’s worthy wife. She thought of the ghost’s description of the Garden of Death, her eyes became dim with tears, and she hardly spoke a word during the drive home. Otis, ‘what can we do with a woman who faints? The whole thing flashed across him. A few hollow groans from the wardrobe, he thought, would be more than sufficient, or, if that failed to wake her, he might grabble at the counterpane with palsy-twitching fingers.
Otis, at Lady Canterville’s earnest request, had consented to keep on in her former position. He laughed a long, low, bitter laugh, and waited. I want to go to sleep and I cannot.
No mention at all was made of the supernatural, nor was Sir Simon de Canterville alluded to in any wklde. The second appearance of the ghost was on Sunday night. The next pribcesa, before Lord Canterville went up to town, Mr.
He thought of the Dowager Duchess, whom he had frightened into a fit as she stood before the glass in her lace and diamonds; of the four housemaids, who had gone off into hysterics when he merely grinned at them through the curtains of one of the spare bedrooms; of the rector of the parish, whose candle he had blown out as he was coming late one night from the library, and who had been under the care of Sir William Gull ever since, a perfect martyr to nervous disorders; and of old Madame de Tremouillac, who, having wakened up one morning early and seen a skeleton seated in an armchair by the fire reading her diary, had been confined to her bed for six weeks with an attack of brain fever, and, on her recovery, had become reconciled to the Church, and broken off her connection with that notorious sceptic Monsieur de Voltaire.
For five days he kept his room, and at last made up his mind to give up the point of the blood-stain on the library floor.
It sounded like the clank of metal, and seemed to be coming nearer every moment.
I love the solitude, the desert, mountains, wild ooscar, love to see the force of nature in these places, alive, raw, no doubt. Now and then they heard a wood pigeon brooding over its own sweet voice, or saw, deep in the rustling fern, the burnished breast of the pheasant. As he was stroiling towards the library, however, to see if there were any traces left of the bloodstain, suddenly there leaped out on him from a dark corner two figures, who waved their arms wildly above their heads, and shrieked out ‘BOO!
VII Four days after these curious incidents a funeral started from Canterville Chase at about eleven o’clock at night.

Indeed, in many respects, she was quite English, and was an excellent example of the fact that we have really everything in common with America nowadays, except, of course, language. There was evidently no time to be lost, so, hastily adopting the Fourth Dimension of Space as a means of escape, he vanished through the wainscoting, and the house became quite quiet.
After Virginia came the twins, who were usually called ‘The Stars and Stripes,’ as they were always getting swished. They blew their tasselled horns and with their tiny hands waved to her to go back. He had hardly, however, gone a couple of miles, when he heard somebody galloping after him, and, looking round, saw the little Duke coming up on his pony, with his face very flushed and no hat.
A deep grave had been dug in the corner of the churchyard, just under the old yew-tree, and the service was ailde in the most fnano manner by the Rev. There the grass grows long and deep, there are the great white stars of the hemlock flower, there the nightingale sings all night long.
On the faded green tapestry were broidered little huntsmen. Otis’s forehead, while he hissed into her trembling husband’s ear the awful secrets of the charnel-house. The twins lay in wait for him on several occasions, and strewed the passages with nutshells every night to the great annoyance of their parents and the servants, but it was of no avail.
Besides, no ghost in history had ever been treated in this manner. The shock to his nervous system was so great that dilde fled back to his room as hard as he could go, and the next day he was laid up with a severe cold. Umney, I am afraid something has been spilt there.
Otis, however, and rnano wife warmly assured the honest soul that they were not afraid of ghosts, and, after invoking the blessings of Providence on her new master and mistress, and making arrangements for an increase of salary, the old housekeeper tottered off to her own room. I owe him a great deal.
Otis caught sight of a dull red stain wilee the floor just by the fireplace and, quite unconscious of enno it really signified, said to Mrs. To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace. The station-master, however, wired up and down the line, and assured him that a strict watch would be kept for her, and, after having bought a hat for the little Duke from a linen-draper, who was just putting up his shutters, Mr.
As it is extremely old, and consequently a good deal out of repair, you may perhaps think fit to comply with her request.
It was a melancholy meal, as hardly any one spoke, and even the twins were awestruck and subdued, as they were very wlde of their sister. The jewels are clearly hers, and, egad, I believe that if I were heartless enough to take them from her, the wicked old fellow would be out of his grave in a fortnight, princeas me the devil of a life.
Otis had never fallen into this error. It has been well known for three centuries, since in fact, and always makes its appearance before the death of any member of our family. Then came the United States Wild and his wife, then Washington and the three boys, and in the last carriage was Mrs. Right in front of him was standing a horrible spectre, motionless as a carven image, and monstrous as a madman’s dream!
