Letter to Harry Price (28 december 1924)
28th December, 1924.
My dear Sir,
Many thanks for your good humoured reply. I am so sure and so wholehearted on this subject that I daresay I seem aggressive to those who have not had the same conviction.
At the same time when a man has been tried and acquitted of an offence I don't think it is fair to charge him with it. I am sure that Mumler was perfectly honest.
I hear that the spiritualists have nipped in the bud one Hulme who was appearing in the north as a photo medium. He was a fraud.
I am writing an article on Houdini and the Crandon case. It is a really bad incident and needs showing up. It should be the last of him as a Psychic Researcher, if he could ever have been called one.
With best wishes for 1925.
A. Conan Doyle
