The Hesperus-Additor

Psychic Science (january 1927, p. 285)

Herr Florizel von Reuter is a musician of European fame, and one of the greatest German virtuosos upon the violin. He is a man of many accomplishments, which seem to include both the psychic temperament and the power of writing a clear and arresting statement. His story speaks for itself. Whether the very remarkable results obtained were, as would appear, independent messages, or whether they were the products of a dramatisation of his own subconscious powers, presents a problem to the researcher. I may add that Herr von Reuter has kindly sent me a specimen of his "Hesperus," and that it is at the disposal of any psychic whom the College may recommend as proficient at planchette work. — A. Conan Doyle.
