Summary

The Tailor in the Haunted Church

People were afraid to pass the church because it was haunted. The tailor said he would spend the night in it sewing trousers. Through the night he saw a head appearing. A voice asked him if he could see the head. The tailor said that he could but that he would continue sewing. An arm appeared. The voice asked if he could see the arm. The tailor said he could but that he would continue sewing. Part after part of the body appeared and each time the tailor was being asked the same question. The tailor finished the sewing as quickly as he could and fled. A man's handprint can be seen in the church until this day.

It is said that a ghost will not speak until it is first spoken to.
