BCAT-257: The Residence at Whitminster/MR James

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-eqpgp-c0e99e

“The Residence at Whitminster” is a short ghost story by the British author M.R. James. It was first published in 1919 as part of the anthology A Thin Ghost and Others. The anthology’s title is taken from a line in the story, “a withered heart makes an ugly thin ghost”.

The story takes place in a house next to a church over two different time periods. The first part of the story takes place in the year 1730. The second part takes place about a hundred years later. In the first part of the story, two adolescent boys, who are supposed to be under the care of the clergyman who lives in the house, dabble in the occult and die soon afterwards. In the second part of the story, a new clergyman and his niece move into the house. The housekeeper complains that one unused bedroom is infested with insects. The niece sees visions of the two boys who lived in the house a century earlier.
