Background

A description of the experience

From James H. Hyslop - Contact with the Other World-(The Century Co., 1919):

Case No. 45 - A. B. Weymouth

When I was living in Los Angeles, California, I became acquainted with Mrs. Jennie D., who seemed to be a congenial soul. In the autumn of 1888, Mrs. D. and I made a verbal agreement that the one who should first enter the spiritual world should return ( d.v.) and appear to the other. In the spring of 1898, the lady became seriously ill and after a few months of suffering-passed away.

As no tidings came from the deceased, I supposed that some unexpected obstacle prevented her return.  But at last the long silence was broken. On Saturday evening, October 22, 1910, I retired to rest soon after nine o'clock. After refreshing sleep I awoke, with the impression that something unusual was about to happen. Then I distinctly heard a voice saying:

'Jennie D is coming." A few moments later, something like a bright cloud appeared in my bedroom. In the midst of the cloud I recognized the form of my long lost friend.

While hovering in the air, she sang two verses sweetly. Then other-spirit forms appeared (the races not recognized) and joined in the refrain I had never heard the words or the music before; and I regret that I cannot recall the words.

They were very beautiful and so was the melody. When the music ceased, the bright cloud and the celestial visitors disappeared and my room was dark again. I rose immediately, lighted a lamp, looked at my watch and made a record of the incident.-The time of the vision was 12:30 on Sunday morning.
