The beginnings of Seership – Vincent Turvey
June 28, 1907.
DEAR MR. TURVEY,
A hasty line to say that your prediction has been literally fulfilled. You may remember that in October last, you described a spirit friend by my side. From the description you gave I recognized a very dear friend-a clergyman of the Church of England-who had "passed on” several years previously.
You observed that this friend had been seen by you the day before in your drawing-room. Strange to say, it was my intention to have called upon you the day previous (I think I had promised to do so), but I was prevented from doing so. The day I called I had another engagement but I put it off at the last moment as I felt compelled to call and see you.
After you had described my friend, the clergyman with the big theological works, you said that I should recommence my public work and again take the platform in April, although I had not the slightest intention of doing (so) at the time.
Strange to say, the way opened in a very remarkable manner, and on April 4, I accepted an offer made to me, entered into an engagement and commenced to preach on Sundry, April 21, and have conducted services each Sunday since that date.
