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] 
From Séance 49 February 9th. Dr James Gully, Mr S C Hall, Captain William Smith
Sacha, speaking through Home, then addressed a few most touching and appropriate words to me, on the subject of marriage [Adare was engaged to be married and the plans for his marriage had just bee made]; after which we all heard a spirit move from beside me over to the window. Home got up, placed himself close to the window and said, “Sacha will try and make herself visible to you." Her form gradually became apparent to us ; she moved close to Home and kissed him. [Sacha was Home’s dead wife]
She stood beside him against the window intercepting the light as a solid body, and appeared fully as material as Home himself, no one could have told which was the mortal body and which was the spirit. It was too dark, however, to distinguish features; I could see that she had her full face turned towards us, and that either her hair was parted in the middle, and flowed down over her shoulders, or that she had on what appeared to be a veil.
She said, through Home, that she would try and appear to us as white light, and she did so, but the form was not nearly so distinct as when she stood as a dark substance against the window.
Captain Smith asked me had I not intended to have been travelling that night; I told him that such was my original intention, but that I had changed my plans some days ago. He said, “I know that, but it was not intended that you should travel to-night. I have no idea why you were prevented, but some day probably you will know. I was obliged (by his hand being taken possession of) the other day, to write down some questions; I sealed them up and sent them to Dan; some day you are to open and answer them, I think you will find something in them about it; I have no idea what I wrote."
Home also told me later that the spirits had not wished me to travel that night.
