    “There used to be a ghost at Battle Abbey. Old Lady Webster told Mr.Hussey of Scotney Castle how she saw it soon after her marriage, an oldwoman of most terrible aspect, who drew the curtains of her bed and looked in. Immediately after, Sir Godfrey came into the room. ‘Who was that old woman?’ she said. ‘There could have been no old woman.’ ‘Oh, yes, there was, and you must have met her in the passage, for she hasonly just gone out of the room.’ In her old age Lady Webster would describe the pattern on the old woman’s dress, and say that she should recognise it anywhere.”
