The Persistent Blood Stain

Welcome By Mrs Umney


The Otis family was welcomed be Mrs. Umney, the house keeper. They were ushered inside the mansion and offered tea.

Blood Stain


Mrs. Otis noticed a dull red stain on the floor just be the fireplace and ordered the stain to be cleaned. Mrs. Umney explained that the blood-stain dated back to 1575,the day Lady Eleanore de Centerville was murdered by her husband, Sir Simion Canterville, and it could not be removed. Washington quickly declared that Pinkerton's Champion stain Remover and Paragon detergent would definitely remove this persistent stain.

All this failed to deter or frighten the Otis fanily. They reiterated and assured Mrs. Umney that they were not afraid of ghosts so there was no cause for worry.
