A description of the experience
The beginnings of Seership – Vincent Turvey
On May 5 one of these meetings was to be held at 8 p.m. Between 6 and 7 p.m. I thought that I would try a little experiment in long-distance Clairvoyance, as I felt the peculiar sensation which denotes that the faculty is active.
I retired into my drawing-room with the intention of trying to see what one or two of the members of the committee were doing. I was able to see three of the officials in different parts of the town, and wrote briefly on a sheet of paper what I "saw" each person doing. As I did not look at the clock I headed the paper "6.30 to 6.55," that being the time as nearly as I could estimate.
A few minutes before eight o'clock I put my rough notes in an envelope, and placed it upon the committee room table. When the seven or eight members arrived, before beginning the business of the Society, I told them what I had done, and asked each of the three members whom I had seen (clairvoyantly) to kindly tell me what they had been doing between 6,30 and 7 p.m. that evening. Each of them made a brief statement.
The envelope was opened; and, as the notes therein contained were found to accurately agree with the statements made, each of the three members concerned, in the presence of the others, appended their signatures, as will be seen in the following document, which is a certified copy of the rough notes which were in the envelope.
May 5, 1908.-"Marrington,"-Time 6.30 to 6.55 p.m. "I saw"-
(1) Mrs. Laney standing with letter or paper in her hand, rather put out and annoyed, she waits for someone to come in and then she turns round quickly, as if she said: "What do you think about this?
(2) Mr. F. T. Blake sitting at, or leaning on a desk, opposite to a window, light thrown on desk with a long dark book-back bound in leather- he is writing and says to someone, "I'm busy for a minute or two "-or words to that effect.
(3) Broad-shouldered gentleman, Mr. Walker or Mr. Luckham, is taking a few steps, with something in his hands that keeps them about twenty inches apart, as would a bowl or box. He is in shirt sleeves."
We severally sign for the correctness of the above statements as far as we are each personally concerned.
G. J, LUCKHAM.
F. T. BLAKE.
With the exception of ten minutes in time.
In paragraph (3) of the above the reader will notice that I had written "Mr. Walker or Mr. Luckham," The reason of my inability to discriminate between the two gentlemen, who are both broad-shouldered men, was the fact that I saw only the back of the person in my clairvoyant vision.
