A description of the experience
The Seeress of Prevorst [translated by Catherine Crowe]
On the l3th January 1827, Mrs. H. being seized with spasms at a very unusual hour, I endeavoured to learn from her the cause of the accident; and, when she was in a sleep-waking state, she told me that she had seen a bier, and on it a person very dear to her-it was her brother, over whom a great danger impended; he would be shot at on the 18th of the month; and she pointed out how he should escape the danger, and described the assassin. It happened as she had foretold; but the shot missed him.
Sometime after she had another warning respecting her brother: several times in her magnetic sleep she saw a fox, and she became aware that, in chasing this animal, he would be in imminent danger from the charge of his gun. Her brother, being warned, examined his weapon, and found that some unfriendly hand had overcharged it; and he thus escaped the danger.
She was supposed to be much en rapport with this brother, he having frequently magnetized her.
