Excerpt from "I Heard a Voice," Or the Great Exploration
When this Giant War of the Nations is over it will be a very different world from the one we all knew before August, 1914; and in no respect will the change be more marked than in the view taken of death and the future life. What becomes of the thousands of young lives daily removed from this earth? Is there any after-life, and, if so, what is its nature? Is it true that when life in this world ends there is a sleep for thousands or millions of years, until a Judgment Day arrives; or is life in this world followed immediately by an active existence in another plane?
Such questions as these are frequently in men's minds; but the difficulties raised by them have, in the main, been solved by persons having the power of communicating with those who have left this life, or who are willing to learn from others possessing such powers.
The experiences in Spirit-intercourse of my family and myself since the beginning of April, 1916, have been so striking that I have felt it my duty to give some account of, them, which I trust may be of assistance to those seeking after the truth. I am a member of the legal profession, and neither by nature nor by training am I unduly credulous. I had a prejudice against Spiritual ism rather than a leaning in its favour, being disposed to doubt both the genuineness and the utility of Spirit-communication. But the evidence which has been thrust upon me from my personal experiences since April, 1916, has been so over whelming that I find it impossible to doubt the power of Spirit-intercourse, or its immense utility, in the highest sense of that term.
I must point out, as a matter of first importance, that my experiences have not been through any paid or professional medium, but have been entirely through my two daughters, who possess, as I quite unexpectedly discovered, very exceptional psychic gifts.
