A description of the experience
Psychics : facts and theories – M J Savage
On another occasion I was sitting with a " medium." I was too far away for him to reach me, even had he tried ; which he did not do, for he sat perfectly quiet. My knees were not under the table, but were where I could see them plainly.
Suddenly my right knee was grasped as by a hand.
It was a firm grip. I could feel the print and pressure of all the fingers.
I said not a word of the strange sensation, but quietly put my right hand down and clasped my knee, in order to see if I could feel anything on my hand. At once I felt what seemed like the most delicate finger tips playing over my own fingers and gradually rising in their touches toward my wrist.
When this was reached, I felt a series of clear, distinct, and definite pats, as though made by a hand of fleshy vigor. I made no motion to indicate what was going on, and said not a word until the sensation had passed. All this while I was carefully watching my hand, for it was plain daylight and all was in full view; but I saw nothing.
