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]  [1869]

A flower in-Home's button-hole was jerked out across the table, and fell by me. I asked who it was for, the answer was, “For you to give to your father with love” . This message was then given, “Your happiness is ours.”

Then this, " We-would fain manifest ourselves more powerfully.”

While this last message was being given, the table was raised gently off the floor and moved up and down three times in the air, then raised again a little higher, and again moved up and down; in this manner it was, without ever touching the floor raised six or seven times, a little higher on each occasion, until it was about three feet above the floor. I have never seen a table sustained in the air for so long a time.

Mrs.Wynne remarked that it was delightful to have no bad influence present, when we had this message “Prayer to God, will protect.”

The table then began moving on the floor in a circle, and the following was given “The love of God encircling you round and about”  Subsequently this was spelled, out: “We love the symbol of faith;" and the table was raised in the air, and, twice made the sign of the cross.

A perfume, as of dried rose leaves and some aromatic substance, was wafted across us and the message given:

“We must now go”.

Nothing more occurred.
