About the Book

A book of letters written by Claude. Some while he was still on Earth, others after he "died".

From the book:
"Up to the time he was killed, Claude's mother was entirely skeptical as to the possibility of communicaition between the living and the so-called "dead," and it was only through her deep grief at his premature loss that she decided to investigate, in the faint hope that there might at least be some definite comfort in it. She spent three months in reading and studying the subject, then joined the "London Spiritualist Alliance Ltd." and attended their lectures and meetings, which proved most instructive and useful, eventually going to several mediums for private sittings. She was very fortunate in getting many evidential tests, a few of which are recorded in the preliminary portion of this book. These communications which were written down on each occasion, have all been received through "Feda" in a series of regular sittings during the past two years. She is the "spirit-control" of Mrs. Osborne Leonard, to whom Claudes mother is indebted for many very happy hours."
Claude joined the Army immediately when the war began in August 1914, without waiitng for a commission, which he obtained in October. He subsequently transferred to the Flying Corps and was trained as a pilot. He was killed in mid-air, fighting two German aeroplanes, near Courtrai, Flanders, in November 1915, three months after he went to the Front; his machine came down in the enemy lines. A few of his letters are printed for purposes of comparison with the 'talks".
