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,65,-Seance, Ashley House, April 3rd.

Present:-Mrs. Gregory, Miss Douglas, Mr. Charles Blackburn, Mr. Fuller, the Master of Lindsay, Home, and myself. We had tolerably strong physical manifestations, lasting for a short time, after which Home went into a trance. He walked about and was elongated in the usual manner. He then stood. still before us, and stretching out his arms to their full length, a palpable elongation took place in them.

I said, “Can you manage that we may test that in some way; may I stand just in front of you, or will you place yourself against the wall ?"

"Home replied, "Yes, certainly, we will do both."

I accordingly placed myself just in front of him, with my arms extended along and touching his; his arms were elongated four or five inches, the others could judge of the extent pretty well by comparison with mine. While his arms appeared to be increasing in length, his chest became greatly expanded, and he said to me,

"You see how it is, the extension is from the chest."

He then placed himself against the wall, and extended his arms to their full natural length; I made a pencil mark at the tips of his fingers.  His left arm was then elongated, I held the pencil against the wall, suffering it to be pushed along by his fingers, until he told me to make another mark. His right arm was then elongated, and I marked the movement in the same manner. The total elongation as ascertained by this means, amounted to 9 ½ inches.
