The Henry Timrod Death Manuscript

As you may know, for years now I have been making up and spreading rumors about The Ghost of the Mercantile Library, as I firmly believe  a reputation for being haunted is just what this place needs to improve its old timey cache.  Unfortunately, despite the blood curdling photographic evidence seen above, I just can’t get anything to stick.

If only I had some sort of grisly supporting document, like SOME membership libraries I could name. Yeah, I’m talking about you, The Charleston Library Society.

  1. I’m convinced that the Merc’s ghost is not only legit but can turn milk blue!

  2. In addition, his special haunting powers include causing tooth decay, and, over a lifetime, diabetes.

  3. Poor Norm, NONE of the Merc’s patrons were ghoulish enough to hang on to blood-stained documents instead of disposing of them like normal people? We’ll have to ship you a few good Southern “eccentrics” for members…

  4. Oh, please please do. Southern eccentrics are second only to ghosts when it comes to old timey cache upping.
