A description of the experience

The Seeress of Prevorst [translated by Catherine Crowe]

One morning, as he (Johann Schmidgall her grandfather) arose from his bed more cheerful than usual, he narrated to his children, that in the foregoing night, his blessed wife had appeared to him in a dream, more distinctly than anything of the sort he ever remembered. She had said something to him, but what it was he could not recall.

When this happened he was in perfect health-but seven days afterwards-dead.
