Miss alice johnson read a paper on Some Recent Sittings for Physical Phenomena in America, of which the following is an abstract: Some time ago at one of the meetings of the Society, a description had been given by Dr. J. H. Gower of some remarkable physical phenomena - in particular the movements of heavy tables untouched by any one and in a good light which he had witnessed in the course of the last few years in a private circle of his own friends, with no professional medium among them, in a town in one of the Western States of America. Dr. Gower having invited Miss Johnson to take part in these sittings, she went to America last August, and spent nearly a month in the town where they were held, attending during that time eighteen sittings in four different houses. The phenomena witnessed were - she was told - about up to the average level of the sittings, but no decisive movements of large objects that were clearly without contact with any of the sitters occurred. These, however, were stated to have happened only some half-a-dozen times during the four or five years that the sittings had been going on.
