A description of the experience
Death and its Mystery: After Death – Camille Flammarion
General Berthaut had already sent me, in September, 1920, the following account. It was taken from G. Chardel’s "Essai de psychologie physiologique." The author was a councillor of the Court of Cassation, and a former deputy from the Department of the Seine (Paris, 1841).
During the disturbances in Brittany there died in the village of la Garenne, near La Chese, a weaver named Jean Goujon. He was a widower without children, and his thatched cottage was left empty and abandoned. It was harvest-time. A girl of nineteen, returning from the fields, was going to the farm next the cottage, when she drew back, screaming. She said she saw Jean Goujon, lying across the threshold of his door, looking at her. He asked that masses be said for him, and pointed out money which he had put, for this purpose, in the chimney-corner, behind a stone. The money was found, and the masses said.
