Background

A description of the experience

The Future and Beyond – H F Saltmarsh

This case is taken from Proc., XI, 487.

Mrs. Atlay dreamed that her husband, the Bishop of Hereford, was away from home and that she read morning prayers in the hall of the palace. After doing so, on entering the dining-room, she saw an enormous pig standing between the dining table and the sideboard. This dream amused her and she told it to the governess, who confirms the account, and to her children, before reading prayers.

After prayers, she opened the dining-room door and saw the pig standing between the dining table and the sideboard in the exact spot in which she had seen it in the dream. The pig had escaped from its sty while prayers were being read.
