A description of the experience

SPIRITUALISM: A NARRATIVE WITH A DISCUSSION.  BY PATRICK PROCTOR ALEXANDER, M.A.,

About this time it was, I -think, that we were startled by a little cry from Mrs. D .  Her chair had been dragged forcibly sideways towards the table, against which she was jammed, without, as she professed, any power to release herself. Mr. Home, however, who sat near her, quietly rose, and relieved her from her little difficulty.  How he could possibly have had anything to do with getting her into it, other people who were not there will no doubt readily enough be able to explain ; but it is certain nobody who was there in the least could.

Note

* Let me be strictly correct here. On the evening in question Mrs. D was jammed up against the table, as described ; the further incident of her having positively to be released by Mr. Home, occurred the evening after, in the presence of my friend referred to at p. 32 et seq.
