The Eddy Brothers

Imagine: The Year is 1874.

You plan to attend an open séance at a small farm in Vermont.

Many will be in attendance.
You know that with so many present there is little chance that you might hear from your loved one on the other side but you travel miles and miles on the thinnest of hope, on the slimmest of chances.

As you travel you think of your loved one but you tell no one his name and no one at the séance even knows who you are or why you have come. You never told anyone of your intention.

The meeting finally begins.

The mediums, two brothers William and Horatio, are at the font of the room.

You watch in astonishment as spirits manifest not in the way you are accustomed to seeing, they don’t speak through the medium, they don’t make raps on walls, they don’t move furniture in response to questions, no, these spirits appear in full physical form, their features and clothing clearly distinguishable, their own voice clearly heard.

The emotion around you is intense and you feel deeply satisfied that, even though your loved one did not show, you have witnessed the reunion of many others in pain like your own.
They are happy and their happiness is contagious.

The meeting is about to end and you weep silently.
You are changed by what you have seen but disappointed that your loved one didn’t show.
You dry your eyes and when you look up again the room is silent and everyone’s attention is on you.

There before you, is the man you loved and lost, the man you mourn for is standing in front of you smiling.

He tells you he loves you still.
He tells you he has seen your despair and that he has longed to reach you.
He tells you he will always be near.
And then he fades as quickly as he came.

This was no fantasy.
This was the daily occurrence at the Eddy farm in Chittenden Vermont in 1874.

The brothers were investigated time and again and made believers out of many a materialist debunker.

Among those that investigated the Eddy brothers was Henry Steel Olcott.

Henry was sent to the Eddy farm with newspaper artist Alfred Kappes to conduct a thorough investigation and report his findings back to the New York Sun and the New York Daily Graphic; papers hungry for scandal.

Henry was a Union officer during the war. It was his responsibility to investigate fraud and corruption within the ranks of the Union army. As a civilian he was a journalist and lawyer. His life was changed by what he witnessed at the Eddy farm. His full account is available today in reprints of his book, “People from the Other World.”

People from the Other World is in the public domain. You may find it by using any search engine. For your convenience I have posted some samples below.
