Haunting Dreams

Below is only shown the Arthur Conan Doyle opinion:


who, like "W. W.," needs no introduction to STRAND readers, says that he has never had a recurring dream. "But," he adds, "I have several times had prophetic dreams, exact in detail. In sleep the soul is freed and has enlarged knowledge. This it endeavours to pass on to the body, but it seldom succeeds. When it does, it is just at the moment between sleeping and waking."
