First S.P.R. Report on H.P.B.
The following letter has been received from a lady known to several of the Committee: ---
My dear Mr. Myers, --- I see no difficulty whatever in telling you what happened in my presence, a few days ago, at Mrs. A.s house, where I had been dining with Madame Blavatsky.
In the midst of conversation, referring to various subjects, Madame Blavatsky become silent, and we all distinctly heard a sound that might be compared to that produced by a small silver bell.
The same phenomenon was produced later on, in the drawing-room, adjoining the dining-room.
I was naturally surprised at this manifestation, but still more by the following incident: I had been singing a Russian song that I brought with me that evening, and which seemed to give much pleasure to my audience.
After the last chord of the accompaniment had died away, Madame Blavatsky said, Listen, and held up her hand, and we distinctly heard the last full chord --- composed of five notes --- repeated in our midst.
I have, of course, not the slightest means for giving any kind of explanation, but the facts were such as I have stated.
