I noticed an adhesive, viscous feeling which was explained as 
being the result of a damp, impure atmosphere. These flowers 
were held near and over the light, which seemed to feed and give 
them substance in the same manner as the hand. 1 have no¬ 
ticed that all these spiritual creations are nourished and fed or 
materialized by means of the electrical reservoir or cylinder, and 
that when they begin to diminish or pass off, incrassation or 
increase takes place the moment they are brought in contact 
with, or in proximity to, the electrical light. By raps, we were 
told to 1 Notice and see them dissolveThe sprig was placed
