Ghost Story Title : Maryland Ghosts By Baltimore American


Ghost Story:

(Baltimore American, May, 1886)
For forty years the Rev. Dr. B. has been the rector of a prominent parish on the Eastern Shore. He had, when the scenes recorded below happened twenty-two years ago, a mission charge sixteen miles distant from the town in which he resided, and he was therefore constantly traveling between these two places. About six miles distant was the country residence of Judge S., a well-known and venerable parishioner of the worthy doctor. The sod had been turned above this gentleman's grave only about six weeks, when Dr. B. chanced to be returning from his mission charge in company with a friend. It was broad daylight, just about sunset, and not far from Judge S.'s gate, when a carriage, drawn by a white horse, passed them rapidly from behind and was
soon out of sight.
'That fellow must be in a hurry to reach C.,' remarked the doctor.
'Did you notice anything peculiar about that vehicle?' inquired his companion.
'Only that it moves very quietly. I heard no sound as it went by.'
'Nor did I,' said his friend. 'Neither rattling of wheels nor noise of hoofs. It is certainly strange.'

The matter, however, was soon forgotten in other conversation, and they had traveled perhaps a mile, when suddenly, the same horse and carriage passed them as before. Nothing was discernible of the driver except his feet, the carriage curtains hiding his body. There was no cross road by which a vehicle in front could possibly have got behind without making a circuit of many miles and consuming several hours. Yet there was not the shadow of a doubt as to the identity of the vehicle, and the two gentlemen gazed at each other in blank
amazement, and with a certain defined sense of awe which precluded any discussion of the matter, particularly
as the horse was to all appearances the well-known white habitually driven by the deceased Judge. A half mile
brought them in sight of Judge S.'s gate, when for the third time the ghostly team dashed by in the same
dreadful mysterious silence. This time it turned in full view into the gate. Without a word of comment the
doctor quickened his horse's speed, and reached the gate only a few yards behind the silent driver. Both
gentlemen peered eagerly up the long, open lane leading to the house; but neither carriage nor wheel-track
was visible, though it was still clear daylight, and there was no outlet from the lane, nor could any vehicle in
the time occupied accomplish half the distance. The peculiar features of this strange incident are that it was
equally and simultaneously evident to two witnesses, both entirely unprepared for any such manifestation, and
differing widely in temperament, habits of life, mental capacity and educational attainments, and by mere
accident making this journey together, and that to this day both of them--witnesses, be it noted, of
unimpeachable credibility--attest it, and fully corroborate each other, but without being able to suggest the
slightest explanation.
