Is the song they are whistling in this episode "Sweet Sue"?

Two spinster cousins inherit a ancestral home with a ghost. The ghost of their long dead cousin has a most patriotic desire.

Two sisters inherit a mansion inhabited by the ghost of a long dead relative who cries for them to help clear his name from the ignominy which followed him into the grave.

The story takes place at the turn of the last century (when indoor plumbing was a luxury). The 18th-century ancestor of spinster cousins Susan & Amy, Cuthbert Frush, whistles "Yankee Doodle." ("Sweet Sue" was from "An Identical Murder.") This is the only instance I know of music playing during E.G. Marshall's remarks. (Instrumental "Yankee Doodle" after Act 1.)
