A description of the experience

Madam Home - D D Home his life his mission

Mr. B. Coleman gave evidence in 1869 before a committee of the Dialectical Society concerning ….tokens received by him at his own first seance with Mr. Home in the year 1855.

At the first seance which I attended, there were fourteen persons in the room, seated round a long dinner-table. Mr. Home sat at one end, and I at the other. Through the rapping sounds several messages were given to different individuals of the party. One purported to be from the spirit of an aunt of mine, who gave me her name as Elizabeth; and another spirit, also an aunt of mine, gave the name of Hannah.

I did not recognize the names. I had never known of any aunts of those names; but subsequently I wrote to my mother, and asked whether she recognised them as family names, and she then told me what was quite new to me, that two sisters of my father were named Elizabeth and Hannah, who died before I was born.
