    Summary

    "Lady Talgarth - Sancia - was a sort of chère amie of my father’s," Sophy said, hurtling towards a turnpike. The groom operated the yard of tin. "Although eventually they decided they were not suited, and Sancia married Sir Vincent. The thing is that she may be very languid and Spanish but she is not at all prone to fancies -" they shot through the turnpike - "and if she says she has a poltergeist, she has a poltergeist."

     

    "Good heavens," said Drusilla, indignant, "is that all?"

     

    "Yes." Sophy slowed. "There really was no need to spring the horses, but they were restive and that was the most suitable stretch of road."

     

    "That is not what I meant," Drusilla said, "although - Sophy, why didn’t she just have the curate deal with it?"

     

    "Sancia is a Catholic. She considers the Church of England anaemic and untrustworthy. And besides, the curate stammers."

     

    ***

    Five ghosts Sophy and Drusilla laid to rest, and one they did not.

    Summary

    "I suppose there's not much to be done, now that the cat's out of the bag, so to speak," said Sir Vincent.

    Augustus considered the poetic potential of a bagged cat and found little inspiration therein. Moreover, based on his admittedly limited experience with said animals, he did not think any cat would willingly be put in such a state. There would be yowling and scratching and hissing and much unpleasantness.
