“The spinet was purchased by George Hamsford in 1837 for his bride, Eleanor. She went mad after the death of their second child, Randolph, and spent her remaining days here, playing the slow movement of the Pathétique over and over. To this day people claim to hear her playing.
“Moving along, the dining room is decorated as Marguerite Hamsford would have known it in 1893.”
Why did that awful man always say that? Mad indeed! Eleanor was no more “mad” than anybody else!
To take out her fury, Eleanor sat down and played Randolph’s favorite music, the slow movement from the Pathétique.
