Guests kept on rushing to the house. One was the essayist Oliver Goldsmith, who left a record of what he saw.
The onlookers… sit taking a gander at one another, smothering chuckling, and hang tight in quiet assumption for the kickoff of the scene. As the phantom is a decent arrangement insulted at distrust, the people present are to hide theirs if they have any, as by this covering just might they at any point desire to delight their interest. For on the off chance that they show, either previously or while the thumping is started, a too intrusive examination, or crazy way of reasoning, the phantom proceeds generally quiet, or to utilize the outflow of the house, Miss Fanny is furious.’ In the end a council was shaped to lead a semi-official examination concerning the eerie.
