As he tried to process what he was seeing, the lady had raised a previously unseen arm and with this arm, she beckoned him towards her. He said he felt almost hypnotised to stand up and go towards her. As he did raise up from his bed, the lady became fully visible. She turned to walk away and as she did, the boy could see she was wearing a long white nightgown, which swished from side to side as she walked. He followed her out of the bedroom, along many corridors and he said he did not feel afraid or cold, he felt compelled to follow her.
The lady eventually went into a room, which the boy said he knew this room had been unoccupied, even when the house had families and servants living there. He said the lady walked around the room and started to point to an area on one of the walls. As she did this, she became motionless and then just disappeared.
The boy had to return to his room in the dark but managed to find his sleeping area and went back to sleep. When he awoke in the morning, he felt it must've been a dream but when he checked the bottom of his feet, they were very dirty. He then told his Uncle, who also had stayed overnight and even showed him the dirty side of his feet. They both went to find the room in which the Lady in White had taken the boy to and the uncle marked the wall where the Lady in White had pointed to.
After Christmas, a mason was brought to the manor house, to chip away at the wall where it had been marked. To everyone's astonishment, there was a plinth behind the wall, which contained many items of family jewellery, previously thought to have been lost throughout the centuries!
