Today’s story is by Francis Marion Crawford, who was an American expatriate known during his lifetime as a writer of historical romances. However, he occasionally dabbled in supernatural fiction. His horror stories drew the attention of one H.P. Lovecraft, who was an admirer of Crawford’s more effective weird fiction. Who knows? Before October is out, we may hear from Mr. Crawford again.
