The Spirit of Sally lived on in the house on Riverview Road. Open to tourists, Tuesdays through Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. it was staffed with volunteers, some of whom claimed to have seen her. Their stories were always the same. She was climbing the stairs. She was weeping. On her head she wore a bonnet reminiscent of the Colonial era. Her legs poked out of a billowy dress. Oh! How she wept and moaned! There were some who suggested that one’s ability to see Sally was dependent on the amount of hallucinogens one had ingested a few hours prior. Others were certain that Sally the Ghost was real.
Fragment of a letter from the Caninian ambassador to his king regarding Queen Pirouette:
Her Majesty is possessed of remarkable beauty and poise. Never have I seen a woman more fashioned by God to near perfection. Her complexion is without blemish and is an honest example of “peaches and cream.” When she moves about the Palace, she seems to float, so graceful is she. Enthroned, her regal bearing induces one to obeisance without any qualm. Indeed her beauty is heaven sent, delicate, refined like an angel.Upon receipt of this letter, the King of Caninia recalled his ambassador from the Court of King GarGar and Queen Pirouette.
