A description of the experience
EXPERIENCES IN SPIRITUALISM WITH MR. D. D. HOME. BY VISCOUNT ADARE, [Windham Thomas Wyndham-Quin 1841-1926] WITH INTRODUCTORY REMARKS BY THE EARL OF DUNRAVEN. [Viscount Adare's father] 
No. 13 Séance-5 Buckingham Gate.
Two or three days subsequently, Home and I having gone to bed after a seance here, at which we felt a few movements of the table, we had manifestations in the bed room, consisting of our beds vibrating strongly and of raps on the furniture, doors and all about the room. Home's bed was slightly moved out from the wall. We both heard something on the dressing table being moved about, and at the same moment we both saw in exactly the same spot, a perfectly white column, it can scarcely be called a figure, as the shape was indistinct.
It moved from the dressing table towards Home's bed. Home said he saw a white object about the size of a child floating near the ceiling above his head. I saw it also, but it appeared to me to be in mid air, half way between the bed and the ceiling: it was floating about in a horizontal position; it was like a small white cloud without any well-defined shape. I saw it descend close to Home, who then lost sight of it, but I perceived it come within about two feet of his head. It then slowly floated to the foot of his bed and disappeared.
I afterwards saw the same appearance near the door. Home saw it intercept the light coming in from the window against the opposite wall; I did not.
We had three messages given us: First, ”We love God best by loving you and seeking to influence you for good."
Second, “Seeing-that you have been troubled to know what we meant by its being rather a tinge from the thought of Adare, we wish to tell you it was owing to something in a letter received from his father."
The manifestations continued for some time when the third message was given: “Now sleep”.
After this we heard and saw nothing more. There was sufficient light in the room to distinguish candles, books, &c., on the table.
