Burroughs, Caisho - And there, going to make water, the Ghost of the Gentlewoman did appear to him
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Aubrey’s brief lives – John Aubrey
Mr Caisho Burroughs was one of the most beautiful men in England, and very Valiant, but very proud and blood thirsty: There was then in London a very beautiful Italian Lady, who fell so extremely in Love with him, that she did let him enjoy her, which she had never let any Man do before:
Wherefore said she, I shall request this favour of you, never to tell anyone of it. The Gentlewoman died: and afterwards in a Tavern in London he spake of it and there, going to make water, the Ghost of the Gentlewoman did appear to him. He was afterwards troubled with the Apparition of her, even sometimes in company when he was drinking; but he only perceived it: Before she did appear he did find a kind of chillness upon his spirits.
