Ghosts – Engstrand to a Real Estate Agent
An imagined letter from Engstrand to a real estate agent, November 10th, where he is enquiring about a harbour front property.
I wanna ask about the place on the waterfront, Little Harbour Street. It’s got one of your signs on it. I cut the picture out from your ad – it’s the one circled. Now I reckon I can afford the down payment they’re asking for and I’ve got some money put by so I can easily pay the rest in installments.
I would be planning to turn it into a hostel for sailors. You know, three or four beds in a room. That’d be all right, wouldn’t it? I already have a contact in the parish who can sort out the licence for drink and entertainment. Sailors need to be able to have a few drinks and some fun when they’re back in port. What do you think? Sound like a good idea to you?
