Case No. 283 A Clergyman
[This] case which was cited by Miss Frances Banks, in the Daily Sketch (Oct. 4, 1960) is of the type called "travelling clairvoyance". It is as follows:
This happened to a clergyman who sat in a chair opposite while his astral body went visiting fifty miles away in Brighton. And through his physical body he was able to describe to her what he saw in Brighton.
'I am now by the sea, 'he told her. 'I am going along the front and am now entering a large house on the right, the sea on my left. Now upstairs is a large drawing-room. I think it must be an hotel as all the seats and chairs are gilded. There are two chairs in front of the fire, side by side, with a man in each; the man on the left is reading a paper.’
He stood behind and could not move or see their faces. Suddenly the man on the left turned to the man on the right and seemed to say something. The clergyman recognized him as an old friend of the family.
His mother noted the time and wrote to the friend to ask him where he was and what he was doing when her son imagined he was watching him. The friend replied that he was in an hotel at Brighton, with an old friend sitting next to him, and he was reading a paper.
