Don't sit on Uncle Willie
Type of Spiritual Experience
After this his mother came up and said that naughty boys who told lies would never go to heaven, which of course left him in total confusion as he hadn't told lies.

A description of the experience
The Boy who saw True
I was too in the dumps to write my diary last night. When Mildred and I came back from Arnold's where we'd been asked to tea, we went to speak to mamma in the morning room, and I saw Uncle Willie sitting in papa's chair, and smiling at us. And just then papa came back from bizzness, and after he had kissed us all, was going to sit down, when I cried " Don't sit there, Uncle Willie is sitting in that chair." And mamma looked all funny, and said, " I really don't know what we’re going to do with that child," and papa was very cross, " What are you talking about, boy? Why your Uncle Willie has been dead these two years"'
Then he told Mildred to take me upstairs at once. When we get into the nursery, I asked her if she hadn’t seen Uncle Willie, and she said ‘Of course not, you horrid little fibber’. I couldn’t make it out, and felt very miserable.
