Developing Psychometry

"You have doubtless heard of the sensing of sealed letters spoken of as

pure clairvoyance. But this phase of phenomena properly belongs to the

realm of Psychometry. Letters frequently prove to be very excellent

connecting links in psychometric experiments. I advise the student to

begin with old letters. He will be surprised to discover how readily he

will begin to receive psychic impressions from the letters--either from

> the person who wrote them, or from the place in which they were written,

or from some one connected with their subsequent history. One of the

most interesting experiments I ever witnessed in Psychometry was that in

which a letter that had been forwarded from place to place, until it had

gone completely around the globe, was psychometrized by a young Hindu

maid. Although ignorant of the outside world of foreign lands, the young

women was able to picture the people and scenery of every part of the

globe in which the letter had traveled. Her report was really an

interesting 'travelogue' of a trip around the world, given in tabloid

form. The student may obtain some interesting results in

psychometrizing old letters--but let him always be conscientious about

it, and be careful to refrain from divulging the secrets that will

become his during the course of these experiments. Let him be honorable

on the psychic plane as well as on the physical plane--more so, rather

than less so, in fact."
