There was a general smile of amusement at his manifest evasion, and I resumed: "Richet went to Rome, and together with Schrenk-Nötzing, the philosophic expert, and Siemeradski, the correspondent of the French Institute, made other and still more convincing experiments, and yet doubt persisted! 'I was not yet satisfied, he says, further. 'I invited Eusapia to my house for three months.

Says Monsieur Richet: "I send V to sleep. I recite some verses to her, and then I awake her. She remembers nothing. I again send her to sleep, and she remembers perfectly the verses I recited. I awake her, and she has again forgotten everything." It appears, however, that if commanded to remember on awaking, a patient may remember.

'When I left Milan, Richet says, 'I was convinced that all was true; but no sooner was I back in my accustomed channels of work than my doubts returned. I persuaded myself that all had been fraud or illusion." Here Harris interrupted: "Miller can testify to this inability to retain a conviction. He, too, has slumped into doubt. How about it, Miller?"

It has been supported by a succession of men, such as Tenon, Dufau, Foissac, de Lapouge, and Richet in France; Tiedemann and Seeck in Germany; Guerrini in Italy; Kellogg and Starr Jordan in America. The case is indeed overwhelming.

Fowler took issue with me here: "It is absurd to say that no one but these physicists has ever properly studied spiritualistic phenomena; spiritists themselves have put the screws on quite as effectively as ever Crookes or Richet has done. Some of the best investigators ever known have been spiritists."

He was trying to explain this and one or two other little things like telepathy and prophetic vision by the word 'somnambulism, when his friend Aksakof, a great psychical expert, reproached him for not interesting himself more keenly in experiments with mediums. 'Well, said Richet, 'if I were sure that a single true medium existed, I would willingly go to the ends of the world to meet him."

The moment a man like Richet or Lombroso admits a knowledge of one of these occult facts, you who have no experience in the same phenomena jump on him like so many wolves. Such bigotry is unworthy a scientist." "Would you have us accept the word of any one man when that word contradicts the experience of all mankind?" asked Miller.

Many of these can be found in the admirable works of Dalton, Flourens, Richet and Curtis. In my Harveian Oration for 1906 I have dealt specially with the reception of the new views, and have shown how long it was before the reverence for Galen allowed of their acceptance.

But it was not until 1891 that anything like Crookes's searching analysis was made of a medium. This important sitting a sitting which marks an epoch in science took place in Milan, and was attended, among others, by Lombroso and Richet. For the first time, so far as is known, a flash-light photograph was taken of a table floating in the air." At this moment the bell rang, and Mrs.
