One day the monarch had the great chandelier removed from one of the high rooms of the Burg in Vienna, and a purse containing one hundred ducats was suspended from the hook in the ceiling; they were to be Schindler's remuneration if he was able to obtain this purse without a ladder.
Immediately he set to work; he was seized with epileptic seizures, struggling with his arms and legs and finally the foam on his lips and with a general tremor, slowly rose into the air. He managed to grab the purse; after that his body stretched horizontally as if to rest and slowly glided down" ().
