Has the ghost of John Singer Sargent, famous American artist, returned to haunt the Chelsea structure in London where he died nearly four years ago? Occupants of the house believe it has.

Frequently his footsteps are heard by Alfred Orr, his American artist friend, who took over the studio. The sounds descend front the second-floor workroom to the ground-floor room in which Sargent died and which now is used as a bedroom by Mr. and Mrs. Orr. The latter is certain she recognizes the footsteps as Sargent’s because of the heavy tread, for Sargent was a tall and heavy-set man and had a distinctive walk known to all his friends in the Chelsea artists’ colony.

“I’m not a spiritualist and neither am I a skeptic,” said Mr. Orr recently. “Anything is possible. Both Mrs. Orr and myself have heard footsteps and we often seem to sense Sargent’s presence in our bedroom leading to the stairway, now sealed up, which Sargent used in going to the studio next door.

He continued: “The most mysterious thing about the whole business was what happened one night when I was in bed. I heard footsteps and at the same time distinctly saw the knob of the bedroom door turn all the way around and then back again. I jumped up and summoned the butler. We searched the house from top to bottom but found nothing unusual.” Mr. Orr has no other explanation for the mystery than that Sargent comes back to the studio in which he rose to fame and in which he died while painting a portrait of Princess Mary.
