The Future and Beyond – H F Saltmarsh
From Proc., V, 319:
Mrs. Smith dreamed on three nights running that her mother would soon die. On the last occasion she jumped up and said to her husband, 'Oh, that horrid dream again, and someone has just whispered in my ear, "She will last but five weeks."
In each dream Mrs. Smith tried to get to her mother but could not do so. At the time her mother, who lived in Ireland, was very well and, in fact, wrote at the time of the dream that 'she had taken a new lease of life.'
Four days later she was stricken by paralysis. She asked for Mrs. Smith to come to her, but, owing to smallpox then raging in Dublin, Major Smith refused to allow his wife to go.
Mrs. Smith's mother died exactly five weeks to the very hour after the time of the last dream.
