Describe the Otis Family.what impression do you form about the differnet family members.

Mr Hiram B Otis was an American Minister who bought Canterville Chase, with the furniture and the ghost at valuation. He was a modern man without any old world superstitions. His wife, Mrs Otis, had been a celebrated New York belle , was now an exceptionally handsome, middle-aged woman with fine eyes and superb profile. Mrs Otis was of a robust constitution.  Her eldest son christened Washington in a moment of patriotism, was a fair-haired, rather good looking young man who had qualified himself for American diplomacy by leading the German at the Newport Casino for three successive seasons and even in London was renowned as a dancer. Gardenias and peerage were his only weaknesses but otherwise he was extremely sensible. Miss Virginia E Otis was a little girl of fifteen, lithe and lovely, with fine blue eyes and an independent spirit. She had captured the heart of the young Duke of Chesire who proposed on the spot and was sent back to Eton that very night by his guardians. The twins followed after Virginia, usually called The Star and Stripes as they were always getting swished. They were delightful and lively boys.
