Case No.295- Mr S. H. Rigby sent the writer this case (in litt.):
One night, not being well, I went to bed early. As I undressed, I glanced through the window and saw a light in the bedroom window of a house across the way. The curtains of this house were closed so that I could not see what was happening inside the room.
I was soon asleep.
I had a strange dream. I dreamed that I was awakened by someone who was invisible. This person took me by the hand and led me downstairs, through the kitchen door, through the back kitchen, down the yard and through the gate of the house in which I had seen the light, through their back door and kitchen and up the stairs. I found myself in the lighted bedroom. The lady of the house was making the bed. I looked around the bedroom, noticing the pattern of the wallpaper, the things in the room, the colour of the eiderdown, etc. When the lady had finished she looked at me and smiled. I remember no more until I awoke next morning, when I told my grandmother all about my 'dream'.
After breakfast, as I was about to go to work, a knock came at the door.
There stood the lady of the house which I had visited in my 'dream'. Asked in, she said, 'I was making the beds last night, and when I had made the one in the back room, I looked up and saw your mother holding you by the hand. I smiled and then you were both gone.'
I then told her of my 'dream' and described the bedroom as I had seen it.
The details were all correct. My mother had passed away twenty-seven years before, when I was born. Her family were strangers to that district and the lady had offered to look after me until the funeral was over. This she did. I had never been inside that house at all. Indeed, I didn't know about her kindness until I had this 'dream'. I do not think it was a dream .I think I was astral travelling.
