The Duchess of OrIeans, Princess Palatine – The Native man who foretold a death
Type of Spiritual Experience
The translation is very unfortunate because the word sauvage in French does not mean savage, it means a person of the wild, a native person.

202 DEATH AND ITS MYSTERY
The following is an extract from the correspondence of the Duchess of OrIeans, Princess Palatine. Here is this letter:
About ten years ago a French gentleman who had been a page to the Marshal d' Humieres, and who had married one of my ladies in waiting, brought with him to France a savage from Canada. One day while they were at table the savage, his face convulsed, began to weep. Longueil, as the gentleman was called, asked him what was the matter with him and if he was in pain. The savage only wept more bitterly. Longueil insisted and the savage said:
"Do not force me to tell you, for it is you it concerns, and not me."
'When he was urged more than ever, he ended by saying, “I saw from the window that your brother had been murdered in such a spot in Canada."
Longueil began to laugh and answered: “You have gone mad!"
The savage answered, “I am not at all mad; write down what I am telling you and you will see if I am mistaken." Longueil wrote it down, and six months later, when the ships arrived from Canada, he learned that his brother's death had occurred at the exact moment and in the very spot where the savage had seen it in a vision throughthe window. This is an entirely true tale.
