Some of the words have been changed, but not sure how updated it has been, but it still a major journey to travel a 200 miles and back.

"I am as sure of it as I can be of any thing," I answered. "He left to-day for Bristol, two hundred miles away."

The Transferred Ghost by Rafael Coira is a short story, an adaptation from a story by Frank R. Stockton, which I have not read, so I do not know the differences between that version and this.

The story is about a ghost. It comes to talk to one of the inhabitants of a house, one day and explains its situation. You see, it had taken residence in the home at the near death of another of the occupants. However, when that person lived, the awkward ghost had nowhere to go. It requests help and offers a little bit of advice in return.

It's an interesting little story and it runs at a reasonable pace. I really did quite enjoy it. My only problem is that the story ends quite abruptly when I feel like there's more to be told. Though it completes everyone's problems, I just don't think the ending is very fitting. Other than that, the characters and plot are all quite good.
