An Explanation by Conan Doyle

The New-York Times (24 april 1930)

To the Editor of The New York Times:

I have always found your paper to be fair in psychic matters. May I point out then that your recent paragraph headed "Conan Doyle Resigns from Spiritist Group" is founded upon error. I resigned from the London Psychical Society, which is by no means a spiritist organization, and I did so because I contend that for a long time they have been prejudiced against Spiritualism and have not given the subject the serious attention which it deserves. I am personally more convinced than ever that it is a matter of supreme importance.

London, April 14, 1930.
