He married Mrs Dumoise one beautiful summer day and they were both very happy. Although Dumoise was a very good doctor, his wife got ill and died from a bad disease. After her death Dumoise went on holiday for a month in the Indian hills to forget his grief. He took his camera, his gun and his wife’s favourite servant with him, a lazy man with six children called Ram Dass. One windy evening, on their way home from the hills, Ram Dass saw Mrs Dumoise’s ghost. She was wearing a blue dress and she looked very sad. She gave him a message for her husband; to meet her on the first Monday of the next month in a place called Nuddea. Nuddea was a large town in the south of India, a long way from Dumoise’s home. When they returned home, Dumoise  told another doctor about his wife’s ghost. While they were speaking in the garden he got a message from the government about a new job in the south of India. It was in Nuddea. Mr Dumoise travelled to Nuddea with some other servants but without Ram Dass. Eleven days later he died there of a bad disease.

Strangely the doll’s house looked like a real house, and I could see light in two of its rooms. A lady and gentleman in blue were in the dining-room. They were drinking wine by the light of a candle. The man pointed at the window with his hand, then stood up and left the room. In a room upstairs I watched a nurse mix some spices into a drink for an old man. He was sitting up in bed in a nightgown. There was a drawer in the small table next to the old man’s bed. Perhaps there were some important papers in it? 2  b coach c four-poster d terrace e curtains f butler g dining room h stable i platform GUESS WHAT   Encourage students to guess but do not tell them the answers now.

When they get back  to the cottage Laura is nervous and has a feeling that something bad is going to happen. They play some music together and  then Jack goes outside (i) to smoke. It is a beautiful night and he decides to walk to the church. On the way there he hears  the noise of people walking in the wood and on the path (c) but he doesn’t see anyone. When he reaches the church, he sees  the door open and remembers Mrs Dorman’s story (a) about  the marble knights. He walks in and is terrified to see that the knights aren’t on their tombs. He runs wildly (b) across the fields  to the cottage, but a black figure jumps out in front of him. It is Dr Kelly. Jack tells him what he has seen, but when they return to  the church together, the knights are there (f) on their tombs. Dr Kelly notices that one of them has a missing finger. The two men walk back to the cottage together (g) talking of explanations for ghosts. When they reach the cottage, the door is open, (h) there are many candles burning, and Laura is lying across a table (d) by the window.

Just before the baron finished, the handsome young man began to stand up. b He passed through me suddenly and, giving a terrible long low moan of great sadness, he disappeared quickly out of the narrow window by the back stairs. c We sat down quietly together without speaking, and stared  thoughtfully for a time at the fine thick stone walls around us. We walked slowly over to look at the sleeping knights. d The poor old man looked terrible. His face was dark red, almost black, his large round eyes were staring in fear, both hands pulled repeatedly at his chest, and his thin lips were white. e The sun had gone down behind the dark mountains, and it was very windy. Dumoise stood silently in front of the old house, waiting for the useless man to come back. 3  I walked slowly and thoughtfully out of the front door, leaving it unlocked. What a wild night it was! The purple sky was full of dark clouds hurrying by, and a thin silver mist covered the stars. The full moon swam high up, sometimes disappearing for a few seconds behind the fast-moving cloud river and sometimes shining down on the leafless trees which waved slowly and noiselessly below. There was a strange grey light that night which shone over all the earth. I walked calmly up and down. Everything was perfectly silent. The wind was so high in the sky that even the dead autumn leaves on  the garden path were still. Across the empty fields I could see the silent church tower standing black against the sky. I heard the church bell striking heavily. It was eleven o’clock already. 4  Open answers. 5 Open answers.

The famous Vanderbilt Tomb stands in one corner of the cemetery and it is believed that it is haunted. Many people report seeing ghosts near the tomb. Crying and moaning noises have also been heard coming from inside. It is said that many photos taken in front of the tomb have an unknown person in the picture. One woman reports taking a photo of her family in front of the tomb, but when she got home  there was no one in the picture. 4  Open answers. 5  Open answers.
