Death and its Mystery: After Death – Camille Flammarion

I shall select one more letter from among those received.  It was sent me from Kaliche, Russian Poland, on June 27, 1913.

MOST ESTEEMED MONSIEUR FLAMMARION: My father, after his death in 1879, proved to me that he was still alive, through signs which we had agreed upon beforehand:

(1) The window-pane which we had designated cracked in a straight, horizontal line; it broke with a noise like the firing of a gun;
(2) the clock which we had selected (its strokes were ordinarily rapid and gay) began to strike the hours slowly and sadly, and for several weeks continued to do so.

I must be silent no longer, because I am old. And since you, the champion of truth, are no longer young, either, it is your duty not to be silent, for the world is listening to you.

NICHOLAS STEPANOW

(Letter 2358.)
