Written Information discovered by Sound Reading

A few years ago I was holding a seance to demonstrate fraudulent medium-ship at the Magic Circle Headquarters in London. 1 was half way through the programme and had reached a point where "E.S.P." tests were being conducted. I was under what may honestly be called "test conditions'*— blindfolded, seated in a chair some distance from a blackboard upon which members of the gathering were to draw various E.S.P. designs. The test conditions as such didn't worry me very much because I had made preparation to use a special electronic apparatus to convey the information to me. ' The first design was drawn and I "received" it, before the next was selected my electronic apparatus was inadvertently disconnected from the mains and I was stuck. It was the fault of my negligence and not the apparatus which J was foolproof if allowed to work properly. Anyway, I thought the next best < thing to saying I was due to go wrong—was to guess—so I waited. The next committeeman went to the board and on it he drew a square. Without thinking how I knew—I also duplicated his design—and immediately realised I could hear, and from what I could hear—I could tell which of the five possible designs they would choose.

I relate this story because I would like you to know that I am not suggesting "grand theory" when I write about Sound Reading; it is very easy, very practical and it has been tried and tested with favourable results.
