many that there is sometimes more logic in tho lucid statem ent of

But to tent the accuracy of the statements, I wrote to the
parish authorities of Pembroke Dock, to corroborate or otherwise tho
lad, and received a reply from Mr. Quarterman, vicar's churchwarden
of Pembroke Dock Church, that, on making inquiry of some of the
oblent, inhabitants of that locality, he found two aged persons who
recollected such a person as Samuel l./ovi, a watchmaker, Ac., who about
the time mentioned lived at Pembroke. The letters from Mr. Quarterman certifying the fact, 1 send to you, Sir, to gratify the curiosity of nnv

P e a r Sir ,— Tho mind of man, like the more material physical
organism of the body, requires sustenance and stimulus to sustain its
powers, or it languishes, loses tone, becomes inert, unimpressionable, and
finally blank. .1 am led to make these remarks in consequence of what
ray experience teaches, that though for four years an ardent investigator
of the phenomena ‘'M odern Spiritualism" presents to inquirers, the
monotony attending the manifestations of spirit-power for the last few
months at the circle at which it is my wont to sit. lias insensibly lessened

finding her at home, alone, knitting, seated at equal distance between
two la des about six feet apart—one a large loo-table, the other a work

had no: done so more than a few minutes, when my ears were greeted
with a > :cc.>>:on of distinct r:\ppings, during which the lady cons d not

answered w.tli tho aid of the alphabet in the usual manner, d asked
orally if my kind spirit-friend would give an answer to a question or grant
a request mentally put?
On receiving three distinct raps in the
ailiruiative, 1 menially asked the spirit, to show its power by giving
neither more nor tower than nine distinct raps. Immediately— indeed,
before, as if in anticipation—I could mentally put my request in form,
