A Regency Ghost Story

i don't believe in ghosts

From Apparitions; Or, the Mysteries of Ghosts, Hobgoblins, and Haunted Houses, Developed. Being a Collection of Entertaining Stories, Founded on Fact; And Selected for the Purpose of Eradicating Those Ridiculous Fears, Which the Ignorant, the Weak, and the Superstitious Are But Too Apt to Encourage, For Want of Properly Examining Into the Causes of Such Absurd Impositions, by Joseph Taylor, 1814.

  1. Loved this, Renee! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve traced some bit of local folklore back to the source only to realize it’s all based on something perfectly reasonable and explainable. It’s always a bit disappointing. Occasionally, it would be nice to find some genuine evidence of spookiness in the world – especially at this time of year!
