A description of the experience
PSYCHISM Analysis of Things Existing ESSAYS BY PAUL GIBIER, M. D. Director of the New York Pasteur Institute.
The following is a case which occurred in an American family, with whom we are acquainted :
One of Mrs. J’s sons was, in 1871, in Germany, at the University of Tubingen, for the purpose of completing his studies. His family in New York had just received favorable reports from him, when the next night Mrs. J. awoke in tears after dreaming that she had seen her son in danger of death.
Seized with anxiety, she struck a light, and began wondering how she could obtain immediate news from so great a distance. Her daughter, at this point, entered her room, coming for the purpose of telling her mother that she had in a dream just seen her brother in a suffering condition.
The mother and daughter had simultaneously had the same dream, which nothing in the conservation of the previous evening could have induced. Still more interesting is the fact that young Mr. J. was really ill at that time in Tubingen.
Luckily the strength of youth got the better of his illness, and he was able to soon return to New York.
