And they said, "Well, we haven't got but one room and nobody can stay there; it's haunted, and they get up there and that ghost comes down and just stands all around."
He said, "Well, I'm not afraid of ghosts. If you'll let me have that room, I'll stay there."
So he went up and redd up and got ready to go to bed, and kneeled down to say his night's prayer, and the ghosts, they just gathered in all around him. He went ahead with his prayer 'til he got through. When he got through, he picked up his hat and started to take up a collection, and they all . . . the ghosts all left him right now.
