Fraudulent Claims Of Identity

We would be lacking in our sense of duty and obligation toward our

readers, however, were we to refrain from calling their attention to the

fact that positive and strict identification of the spirits, in cases

where identity is claimed, is a duty on the part of investigators,

particularly on the part of those who happen to be relatives or friends

of the deceased person whose presence and identity are being claimed by

the controlling spirit who is manifesting the impersonation. As we have

said, elsewhere, we must remember that there are all kinds of decarnate

spirits, just as there are all kinds of incarnate spirits; and that the

nature of a spirit is not greatly changed by passing out of the body.

Just as there are imposters on the earth plane, so are there imposters

on the spirit plane. And, accordingly, caution is to be exercised on

both planes. The following quotations from mediumistic writers will

serve to illustrate this point, and to show that the best mediumistic

authorities themselves insist upon this precaution being taken.
