Recalling Past Incidents





"After looking around the room very deliberately at various objects,

then at one person after another, and fixing her eyes on my wife, she

ran across the room, and throwing her arms around my wife's neck, she

kissed her most affectionately, addressing her as 'My dear sister.'

After speaking with my wife in endearing terms, she came across the room

to me, and placing her right hand on my shoulder, said: 'Well, my dear

brother.' (This was exactly as a deceased sister of my wife had been in

the habit of doing.) 'How unspeakingly glad I am for such a privilege as

this! When we used to sit by the hearth at night, conversing on various

topics that used to interest us so much, we little expected we should

ever have such a privilege. You know we used to sit up at night

discussing theological questions till the embers in the grate died out,

and sometimes a chiding voice from upstairs cried out: "Alfred, Alfred,

do come to bed. Do you know what time it is? You know Charlotte is not

fit to sit up so late."' This was precisely what had taken place, the

exact words being used.
