Background

A description of the experience

Florence Marryat – The Spirit World

Mrs. Russell Davis had a friend, who died, lingeringly, of cancer, and was very anxious she should be with him at the last, and, as the time of his death was pretty well known beforehand, she was able to comply with his request.

She has told me that his great anxiety was, that his wife should come to conduct him over to the distant shore, and it had been promised him she should do so.

As Mrs. Davis was sitting by his side on the day he died, she saw his wife's spirit standing at the foot of the bed. The dying man also perceived it; for, rising suddenly, he stretched out his arms towards her, and she opened hers, when Mrs, Davis actually saw the husband’s spirit shoot out of his body, as if it had been his double, and fly into the arms of his wife, whilst his corpse fell back upon his pillows.
