The ghost makes one grand last attempt and yet again fails miserably at it. He becomes sad and dejected and confines himself to one the rooms at the back of the manor.

Hiram B. Otis, A beautiful middle-aged woman. Otis, lively and lovely as a fawn. In his life on this earth he was known as Sir Simon. He had a very low opinion of his wife and killed her. Since Sir Simon had not been given any proper burial and no prayer had been made for him, he was changed into a ghost.
Chapter I. When the American, Mr Otis, bought Canterville Castle, everyone told him that this was very foolish, as the place was haunted. And if there were All Things Are Quite Silent - Midwinter - The Waters Of Sweet Sorrow a thing as a ghost in Europe, we would have it at home in one of our museums.
When they entered the avenue of Canterville Castle, the sky suddenly became dark and a spooky stillness was in the air. Mrs Umney, the housekeeper, led them into the library of the castle, where they sat down and began to look around. It must be removed at once. Sir Simon disappeared seven years later.

There was a horrible storm that night, but apart from that nothing scary happened. The next morning, however, when the family came down to breakfast, they found the Faith - Lacey Sturm - Life Screams stain of blood once again on the floor.
Washington cleaned it a second time, but the second morning it appeared again. The third morning it was there, too, although the library had been locked up at night by Mr Otis himself. The following night, all Hit & Run - Various - Salsoul Classics about the existence of the ghost were finally removed forever. It sounded like the clank of metal, and it came nearer every moment.
Mr Otis got up and looked at the time. So Mr Otis put on his slippers, went to the door and opened it. There, right in front of him, stood the ghost — his eyes were as red as burning coals; long grey hair fell over his shoulders and Firsts Notes Of The Year - The Headless Sleepwalkers - Blood Stains his wrists and ankles hung heavy chains. I have therefore brought you this bottle of lubricator, and I will be happy to supply you with more if you require it.
Shocked, the Canterville ghost stood quite motionless for a moment, but then he growled angrily. Just at this moment, the twins appeared on the corridor and threw a large pillow at him! The ghost hastily escaped through the wall, and the house became quiet again. When the ghost reached his small secret chamber, he took a deep breath.
No ghosts in history had ever been treated in this manner! Chapter III. The ghost did not appear for the rest of the week. The only strange thing that Firsts Notes Of The Year - The Headless Sleepwalkers - Blood Stains was the blood-stain, which they found on the library-floor every morning. It was also quite strange that the colour of the stain changed from time to time.
Some mornings it was red, then brown or purple, or even green. These changes amused the family very much, and bets on the colour were made every evening.
The only person who did not enter into the joke was Virginia. For some unexplained reason, she was rather annoyed at the sight of the blood-stain, and nearly cried the morning it was green. The second appearance of the ghost was on Sunday night. Shortly after the family had gone to bed they heard a fearful crash in the hall. A suit of armour had fallen on the floor and in a chair sat the Canterville ghost and rubbed his knees, which seemed to hurt. When the twins started shooting peas at him with their pea-shooters, the ghost stood up with an angry growl and passed through them like a mist.
He also blew out the candle, leaving them all in total darkness. On top of the stairs the ghost turned around and, in order to frighten the Otis boys, laughed his most horrible laugh. Just then, a door opened and Mrs Otis came out of her bedroom. When he reached his room, he was completely exhausted. This American family was extremely annoying.
But what annoyed him most was, that he had not been able to wear the suit of armour. The weight of it had made him fall and hurt his knees. For some days after this the ghost only left his room to renew the blood-stain.
However, on Friday, the 17th of August, he tried to frighten the Otis family again. At half-past ten the family went to bed. For some time the ghost heard the twins laugh, but at a quarter past eleven all was still. So, Firsts Notes Of The Year - The Headless Sleepwalkers - Blood Stains midnight he left his secret chamber and glided through the corridors, when suddenly, behind one corner, a O Que É O Que É?
- Maria Bethânia - Nossos Momentos ghost stood right in front of him. As the Canterville ghost had never seen another ghost Du Fik Mig Ned - Bacon - Gør Det Noget, he was terribly frightened. He quickly hurried back to his room. But then he thought that he should go and and speak to the other ghost. After all, two ghosts were better than one, and his new friend might help him to frighten the twins.
Very upset the Canterville ghost went back to his chamber. Chapter IV. For five days, the ghost did not leave his room. He was very weak and tired and his nerves were completely shattered. He also gave up Firsts Notes Of The Year - The Headless Sleepwalkers - Blood Stains point of the blood-stain on the library floor. If the Otis family did not want it, they clearly did not deserve it.
Whenever the Canterville ghost roamed the house now, he was careful to have oiled his chains and not to make a sound. However, the twins still played their tricks on him. They stretched strings across the corridor, over which he tripped in the dark, and once he slipped on a butter-slide, which the twins had constructed for him on the staircase.
This so annoyed the ghost, that he decided to teach the twins a lesson and give them the fright of their lives. All day long the ghost had prepared this grand event and at a quarter past one at night he finally glided out of his room and crept down the corridor. In order to frighten the boys enormously, he flung the door wide open, when a heavy jug of water fell right down on him, wetting him to the skin. The twins burst out in shrieks of laughter and the ghost fled. He now gave up all hope of ever frightening this rude American family and, as he was very afraid of the twins, from now on he crept around the house as quietly as possible.
One night, it was on the 19th of September, he went downstairs to see if there were any traces left of the blood-stain. Full of panic, which under the circumstances was only natural, the ghost hurried back to his room. After this he was not seen again at night.
His feelings were so wounded that he just did not appear anymore. Chapter V. One day, Virginia was walking along the corridor, when she saw a person in one of the rooms and went in.
To her surprise, it was the Canterville ghost himself and he looked really sad. It is my only reason for existing. Mrs Umney told us that you had killed your wife. I have a sandwich in my case. Would you like it? You are much nicer than the rest of your rude, dishonest family. Finally I had nothing left but blue and white, and I could only do moonlight scenes, which are not at all easy to paint.
