Sir A. Conan Doyle's Lecture

The Times (18 june 1919)

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle writes :- "Several errors have crept into your report of my lecture upon 'Death and the Hereafter.' It was in 1886, not 1866, that I began my psychic studies. D. D. Home, not D. T. Holme, was the name of the famous medium. The results I obtained in a series of cases of communication were 36 sucesses out of 44 attempts — not 36 successes against 44 failures. There were eight failures."
