  1. 1. If there's only one guest, this is correct. If there are many guests, don't forget to make the word plural!

    2. Correct.

    3. Fine as is -- "help" is good.

    4. Wordy -- delete "whose presence is" and put a comma after "spirit." The rest is fine.

    5. "according to" is fine.

    6. "others" is fine.

    7. Ignore what you put in parentheses; it's fine as is.

    8. This time I'd use the words in parentheses. How will it read?

    9. "imagines they are" is smoother wording, yes.
