Overview

The Great Amherst Mystery described in this story happened 1878. The activity centred around Esther Cox, who lived in a small house with her married sister Olive Teed, Olive’s husband Daniel, and their two young children. A brother and sister of Esther and Olive also lived in the house, as did Daniel’s brother John Teed.
According to Walter Hubbell’s account, events began at the end of August 1878, after Esther Cox, then aged 18, was subjected to an attempted sexual assault by a male friend. This left her in great distress, and shortly after this the physical phenomena began. There were knockings, bangings and rustlings in the night, and Esther herself began to suffer seizures, in which her body visibly swelled and she was feverish and chilled by turns. Then objects in the house started to be thrown around.

The frightened family called in a doctor. During his visit, bedclothes moved, scratching noises were heard, and the words “Esther Cox, you are mine to kill” appeared on the wall by the head of Esther’s bed. The following day the doctor administered sedatives to Esther to calm her and help her sleep, whereupon more noises and flying objects manifested themselves. Attempts to communicate with the “spirit” resulted in tapped responses to questions.

    Horrible

    I found this book to be nothing about a haunted house! Quit reading it about halfway through. Waste of money!

    Ridiculous

    This is very far-fetched, even for a ghost story. Author writes well however.
