A wandering spirit is looking for help as he is more or less lost.

I am here, Solomon P. Brown.

Let me write just a few lines and tell you how unhappy I am and how much I need your help. Well, I was not a very bad person, but merely did not do what I should have done to help my fellow man to become happy and prosperous because I was selfish and thought that I needed everything for myself. But now I see that I was all wrong and that I must try to right the matter, but I don’t know how. Tell me if you can.

I live on the earth plane, but I am not happy as I tell you.

I don’t know anything about God except in a general way as a being who created the world and sends the bad to hell and the good to heaven.

Well, that is one thing that has confused me. I am neither in heaven nor in hell, and where I am I don’t just know; but I know that I am a spirit and do suffer and am not very happy. So if you please, tell me where I am and what I must do to get to a better place.

My name was Solomon P. Brown and I lived in a town named Bridgeport, Connecticut. I died in 1892, and I have been here ever since wandering around in hope to find some way to get out of this unhappy condition.

Yes, I was married, but my wife is still on earth and enjoying herself in a second marriage, and I don’t blame her, for if I could find someone here who I thought could add to my enjoyment I would get married too. But I have never seen any marriages here, and I suppose they don’t have any.

Well, I will go with him. He says all right come along and I am going.

So my dear sir, good night.
