Persistent Watchful Waiting

Some persons are so disappointed because they have not obtained results

after two or three sittings that they give up further efforts. It would

perhaps amaze such persons to know that many of the world's most

celebrated mediums have, in the beginning of their development circle

work, sat for several weeks, or even several months, at frequent

intervals, without obtaining more than the most meagre results; but they

ards developed the most marvelous power. An extreme case is cited

in the history of spiritualism, in which a couple sat night after night

for six months, without missing a sitting and without being rewarded by

a single physical result; but after this tedious and discouraging wait,

all at once, as it were, the spirits secured the most perfect kind of

communication through them, and difficult table tippings and levitation,

convincing raps, messages, writings, and finally materializations

follows, until their fame spread all over the world of spiritualism.
