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]  [1869]

No. 39.- Seance at Ashley House, Tuesday, November 24th.

 

Last Sunday Home went to Norwood; Lindsay accompanied him. They had a seance, but scarcely any manifestations.

Lindsay came back here with Home about eleven o'clock. We three sat round the table and had a very curious seance, the room being nearly dark. Lindsay and Home saw spirit forms. I did not; but I saw, as did also the others, phosphorescent lights about the room; balls of light would move along the floor and touch us, feeling like a material substance and highly electrical.

Adah Menken was there, and spoke to us a good deal. She removed her book from the table, turned a leaf down, and brought it back, putting it in my hand, and telling me that she had marked a certain place. Little Dannie Cox's spirit came and moved a small chair from the wall, and placed it near the table.  He lifted the chair (no one touching it), up in the air, brought it to me, then carried it over the table to Home who was sitting at the other side.

He tried to materialise his voice so that we might hear it. We heard the voice distinctly, and he articulated the words “Uncle Dan." The spirits gave each one a message in a curious way. Lindsay was anxious to be touched. They said, “All is good" and then turning the hands of a clock that was not going, so as to make it tick and strike, finished the sentence, "All in good time."

The table we were sitting at was twice raised in the air so high that we could see under it without stooping. It was altogether a wonderful seance. We had a number of messages, but I forget them.
