Mr. Wallace Takes a Wife

There used to be a joke in Kessel that every village must have its odd characters and when the Lord was handing them out, He favored ours with the very best. We had, for example, a fellow called James Garnett, who had tried for forty years to communicate with the spirit of his dead sister. It did not seem to matter to him that few people had been interested in conversing with the rigid, unpleasant Miss Garnett even in her lifetime. Each year on the anniversary of her death, James invited his neighbors to a séance in the hopes of contacting her. One might assume that four decades of failure would tell on the man's spirits, but they did not. James insisted that he had something to say to the long-gone Miss Garnett, and he would continue in his efforts until he succeeded.
