Supernormal faculties in Man- Dr Eugene Osty
As it is impossible to give in this book seance by seance, all that was said on this painful matter, I shall only mark the principal stages, taking extracts from those seances which gave most information.
August 4th, 1915.
The sister of a friend of M. M. (who knew nothing of the affair), put a letter-card from Lieut. Jean M. into the hands of Mme B., a sensitive, who lived at Carcassone-. This lady had been expressly warned to take no initiative other than writing down the words of the percipient. On touching the paper Mme B. said:
“A young man has written this . a young man with chestnut hair, middle height, fresh complexion, upstanding-a fine lad, very gentle, loyal, and kind-. . full of courage and good spirits. . There seems to be in his family a boy of whom he is very fond" (correct). ''He has been wounded by a shell-splinter during a battle . . .he was taken up, -put down, and taken up again . . . severely wounded . has been looked after in several places. I hear the word Cologne . . . make inquiries there. He seems to have been trepanned. . . . I do not see him dead. . . . I hear ' Jean.' You must hope. His brain is confused. He is living, he will come back. . . ."

M. M. put a photograph of his son into the hands of Mme A., of Bourges, till then-unknown to him. After feeling the thing for a few moments, she said:
"There has been a wound in the forehead, not mortal, and some injury to the shoulder and right arm; he would seem to have been trodden on. He has been taken up and treated. He is far away in a country to which you cannot write. . . it is not in Germany. .. . His brain ls affected . . . you will have no news for four months. Towards the end-of April or the beginning of May they will come by a letter from him, which will get through almost by a miracle. . ."
