The Canterville Ghost
Mrs. Amni (housekeeper)
Author: Mr Hiram B. Otis was a rich American from New York. He had come to live and work in England, but he did not want to live in London. He did not want to live in the city. He
wanted to live in the countryside outside London. Canterville Chase was a large and very old house near London. Lord Canterville, the owner, wanted to sell it. So Mr Hiram B. Otis visited Lord Canterville.
^ I do not live in Canterville Chase. I do not want to live there. The house has
a ghost - The Canterville Ghost.
Mr. Otis: I come from America, America is a modern country. I don't believe in ghosts. Have you ever seen this Canterville Ghost?
^ : No, but I have heard it at night.
Mr. Otis: I don't believe in ghosts, No one has found a ghost. No one has put a ghost in a museum. And you haven't seen this ghost either.
Lord Canterville: But several members of my family have seen it. My aunt saw the ghost. She was so frightened that she was ill for the rest of her life. Also, the servants have seen it so they left our house. Only the housekeeper, Mrs Umney, lives in Canterville Chase. Mrs Umney lives there alone.
^ : I want to buy the house. I'll buy the ghost as well. Will you sell Canterville Chase? Will you sell the ghost?
Lord Canterville: Yes, I will. But, please, remember, I told you about the ghost before you bought the house.
Author: Mr. Hiram B. Otis bought Canterville Chase. Then his family came to England from America. He had a wife called Lucretia, three sons and a daughter. The eldest son, Washington, was almost twenty years old. He was good-looking and had fair hair. His two young brothers were twins. They were twelve years old. The daughter, Virginia, was fifteen years old. She had large blue eyes and a lovely face. Mr Otis took his family to live at Canterville Chase. The old house was in the countryside west of London.
Mrs. Umney: Welcome to Canterville Chase. Would you like some tea?
Mrs Otis: Yes, please.
Mrs Umney put teacups on the table, then she brought a pot of tea.
Mrs Otis: What is this red stain?
Mrs Umney: It is blood.
Mrs Otis: I don't want a blood-stain in my library. Please remove the stain. Please clean the floor immediately.
Mrs Umney: It is the blood of Lady Eleanore de Canterville. She was murdered by her husband, Sir Simon de Canterville, in 1575. The blood-stain has been here for over three hundred years. It cannot be removed.
^ : Nonsense. I have some Pinkerton's Stain Remover from America. It can remove any stain. Watch. Pinkerton's can remove anything,' said Washington
Otis. The blood-stain has gone.
Mrs Umney fainted. Mr and Mrs Otis ran across the library. They helped
the old housekeeper who lay on the floor. Mrs Umney's eyes were closed and her face was pale.
Mrs Otis: Mrs Umney! Mrs Umney! Can you speak?
Mrs Umney: Trouble will come to this house. I have seen the ghost. The ghost will come to you.
All the Otises helped Mrs Umney to stand up.
Mrs Umney: The ghost will come.You must not remove the blood-stain. You must not clean the library floor. The ghost will be angry.
Author: Then Mrs Umney went upstairs to her room. That night the family went to bed early. The storm continued all night. Mr Otis woke up after midnight. There was a strange noise outside his room. The sound was like metal chains. The chains were nibbing together.
Mr Otis got out of bed and opened the bedroom door. He looked into the corridor. He saw the Canterville Ghost in the corridor. He had long grey hair and wore very old-fashioned clothes. There were chains on his hands and feet. He was rubbing the chains together so they made a noise.
Mr Otis: My dear sir, your chains make a terrible noise. You must put some oil on those chains. Please put the oil on your chains.
Author The Canterville Ghost was very surprised. He had lived in Canterville Chase for three hundred years. Everyone was frightened of him but not this American gentleman.
Ghost: I’m so angry. He stopped at the top of the stairs and frighteningly laughed.
Mrs Otis went out her room: 'Are you in pain? I have a bottle of Dr Dobell's medicine. It is good for stomach-aches and headaches. Please take the medicine.'
Mrs Otis: As you like it… She turned around herself and went away.
The ghost felt very weak and tired. He sat in the armchair and took his head into his hands… But that moment twins burst into the room and began to shout, run and spit through the pipes. The ghost did not know what to do. He ran through the nearest door, went back to the secret room. He could not frighten anyone. He was a very unhappy ghost.
Ghost: No one had laughed at me before. I am a ghost. Everyone is frightened of ghosts. No one had ever laughed at the Canterville Ghost before!!!
Virginia: I feel very sorry for you. I'm sorry that my brothers were not very kind to you. But you did try to frighten them. You are very wicked, I know.Mrs Umney, the housekeeper, told us that you killed your wife.
Ghost: Yes I did. But she wasn't very kind. And it wasn't very kind of her brothers to starve me to death.
Virginia: Starve you to death? Oh, poor ghost, are you hungry? Would you like a sandwich?
Ghost: No thank you. I never eat anything. But you are very kind. You are much kinder than the rest of your family. They are rude, nasty and unkind.
Virginia: Stop! You are nasty and unkind too.
She was going to go out.
^ Please do not go, Miss Virginia. I am so lonely and so unhappy. I do not know what to do. I want to go to sleep and I cannot.
Virginia: It’s easy to sleep. You go to bed and close your eyes.
Ghost: I have not slept for three hundred years. I have not slept since I was murdered by my wife's brothers.'
Virginia: Poor ghost how can I help you to sleep?
Ghost: Far away in the woods there is a little garden. In the little garden the grass grows long and thick. There are many flowers and trees. A nightingale sings all night long. The bird's sweet song is beautiful and sad. The white stars and the pale moon look down on this little garden. It is very peaceful.
Virginia: You mean it is the Garden of Death.
Ghost: Yes, the Garden of Sleep. It is very beautiful. There is peace and silence. There is no yesterday and no tomorrow. But only Love can open the door to the garden. For Love is stronger than Death. Have you read the writing on the library window?
Virginia: Yes, but I do not understand it.
Ghost: Look. Read the lines on the window.
When a golden girl shall weep
For the ghost that cannot sleep,
Then the dead at last shall die
And in restful earth may lie.
Ghost: The words mean you must weep for me. Then the Angel of Death will let me rest. Will you help?
Virginia: What do I have to do?
Ghost: You must come with me into the darkness. You will see strange things. You will hear strange voices, hut nothing will hurt you. You are good and kind. The dark cannot hurt you.
Virginia: I am not afraid. I will come with you into the dark.
Author: Virginia did not come downstairs for supper. Everybody searched the house and the park but nobody could find her. None of the family wanted to eat or sleep. They sat in the library and waited. They hoped Virginia would return safely. They planned to search for Virginia again in the morning. It was midnight when all the clocks in the house struck twelve and a door opened at the top of the stairs. Virginia stood in the doorway. She looked down the stairs at them. Her face was very pale and she carried a small box in her hand.
Mr Otis: Where have you been? Your mother has been very worried. You have frightened us all. You must never play a trick like this again.
^ : Except on the ghost, you can play tricks on the ghost!
Virginia: Father, I have been with the ghost. He is dead and now he can rest. He gave me this box of beautiful jewels before he died.
Mr Otis: Where did you get this? Where have you been?
Virginia: I can’t tell you but I helped the Ghost to sleep. There is the body of Sir Simon de Canterville in a little room with a low ceiling. He murdered his wife in 1575. Then his wife's brothers shut him in this room. He was given no food. Sir Simon starved to death. His ghost was in this house for three hundred years. But now he has found peace. Let’s pray.
Author There was a funeral four nights later. The Otises buried the body of Sir Simon de Canterville in a grave among the trees. Many people had come to the funeral. Virginia carried white flowers. She looked up at the stars and the pale moon and the dark trees. She remembered what the ghost had said about the Garden of Death. A nightingale began to sing. The bird's sweet song was beautiful and sad. Virginia smiled: God has forgiven him for murdering his wire.
