whoever the entities were responsible for this were enjoying a good joke.
A friend has since told me that he has seen a woman standing in my house dressed in 1890s garb, but as for me, I've seen nothing. I've come to the conclusion that I'm sharing the house with some past residents. We get along; however, and I always say ''thank you'' for being here and being ''guardian angels'' for the property.

I was visiting Mount Vernon on a warm summer morning about 1985. I was with a couple of English cousins, ascending the stairway up to the second floor where the family bedrooms are located. We were quietly chatting as the line slowly moved upstairs. Part way up I had the impression of an unseen person arms outstretched trying to block the way up, conveying a verbal message of ''how dare you transgress the general's quarters?'' In doing some further research, I found that George Washington had a very loyal man servant, a slave named Will or Billy Lee who served Washington in that capacity from 1768 through the war and the presidency. I can imagine such a loyal servant being displeased at having people with English accents accessing the private quarters of Washington who preferred being addressed as ''General Washington'' in his later years.

Anyone who's ever lived in the Washington DC area knows you should stay away from New York Avenue at night. Not because of ghosts but it goes through some pretty rough neighborhoods.
Going on New York Ave was a shortcut for me at the time and I decided to risk it at 3 am (doors locked just in case), I figured all the street weirdoes would have gone to sleep by then, there were still quite a few of them around though.
