Mrs. Bickford Smith and her dreams



Type of Spiritual Experience


A description of the experience

As quoted in Gabriel Delanne - Materials for use in the study of Reincarnation

When I arrived at the Morley Hotel at 3:00 a.m., said Mrs. Bickford Smith, on Tuesday, January 29, 1889, I realized that I had lost my gold brooch, and I assumed that I had left it in a fitting room at Swan and Edgar's. I sent to see and was disappointed to learn that all the efforts had been useless. I was very upset and at night I dreamed that I found it in an issue of the Queen that had been on the table, and in my dream I even saw the page where it was. I had noticed one of the pictures on this page. Immediately after lunch, I went to Swan and Edgar's house and asked for the newspapers, telling the young women about my dream and where I had seen the brooch again. The newspapers had been removed from this room; but they were found and to the great surprise of the young women I said: "This is the one that contains my brooch", and on the page where I expected it, I found the brooch.
