A description of the experience
Thoughts through Space – Sir Hubert Wilkins and Harold M Sherman
For the night of the 8th of March, Sherman's record is prefaced with what seems a remarkable statement in the light of subsequent happenings. He stated:
"Tonight's sitting appeared to be a blend of clairvoyance and telepathy phenomena. The exact transcription of tonight's impressions are as follows: Slight break in clouds above, but dark storm clouds low on the horizon-Seems as though flight started and down at some point or turned back-plane motionless. Something did not go today as planned. Snow and sleet-like weather in some parts-seem to see it pelting the plane. I see you beside the plane looking up and around. There is activity about a tent not far distant-fleeting vision of your face, quite strained, intent impression as though concentrated upon flight activity-strange feeling in pit of stomach or solar plexus-as if I’ve gone through close scrape or acute experience-you concerned about something-carrying supplies. "
Those impressions, recorded by Sherman on March 8th, very accurately describes what actually took place on March 11th : The dark stormy clouds on the horizon-which made me hesitate and made Kenyon quite apprehensive about taking off. And, of course, we had started, turned and come back, because of the snow and sleet-like weather and so forth.
