Identifying Historical Personages





Of course, a close, personal identification, similar to that stated in

the above recital, is impossible in cases when the spirit claims to be

some well-known historical personage. But in the last named class of

cases it will be found possible to ask questions concerning the life and

career of the supposed celebrity, and to form a general idea of the

correctness of the claim by the quality and general character of the

answers given. It will be found that genuine spirits are nearly always

anxious to definitely establish the truth of their claims to identity,

and will often go to great pains to do so. The character of the language

employed, the grammar followed, and the general evidence of the

intellectual capacity of the spirit, all these will be found useful in

testing cases of claimed identity; and no genuine spirit has any just

cause to object to such tests and questions, if made in the proper

scientific spirit, and with ordinary politeness. In short, treat the

spirit just as you would were he in the flesh, speaking to you over a

telephone, and endeavoring to establish his identity; this will always

be a safe and just rule to employ and follow.
