A description of the experience
Death and its Mystery: After Death – Camille Flammarion
On July 5, 1867, Prince Wittgenstens related the incident in the letter given below:
A friend of mine, Lieutenant-General Baron de Korff, who has been dead for some months, manifested himself to me through a medium (without my thinking of him in the least).
He ordered me to point out to his family the place where, through malevolence, his will had been hidden. It had been concealed in a certain cupboard of the house in which he died.
I did not even know that the heirs were looking, without success, for the will in question It was found at the exact spot designated by the spirit of the deceased.
It was a document of the greatest importance for the management of the family estate, as well as for the solution of questions which would arise upon the sons' coming of age. Here is an occurrence that defies all skepticism.
