I am here, George C. Calvert.
I was an acquaintance of yours when you were a student at New Market,
and you will recollect me when I recall your memory to the fact
that I was called "Judge." Well, I came, because I saw
that other spirits were writing you, and when I looked at you I
remembered you, and then desired to write.
I am in what is called the dark plane and have been for some time
now, though when I first entered the spirit world I went into the
hells and suffered a great deal. But I am thankful that I have gotten
out of the conditions that suited me for those places, and am now
in a brighter plane and in less suffering. I don't know that you
can do anything for me but some spirits say that you have helped
them and if that be true I should like for you to help me. I am
willing to do most anything to get into a better condition, and
if you will do what I say, I will appreciate it very much and try
to follow your advice.
No, I should like to be surprised. Well, I have looked, and I see
some wonderfully bright and beautiful spirits, but I don't recognize
any of them. Wait a moment - one is coming to me and I am surprised,
for it is Prof. Salyards. How wonderful! Why he is really handsome!
Well, well, dear old Prof. He says he is glad to see me and that
I must go with him, and I certainly will. I thank you very much
and will come again.
Your old friend.
