Conan Doyle contribution
In moving a cordial vote of thanks to the lecturer, the chairman (Arthur Conan Doyle) mentioned how he had once belonged to a society who made similar investigations on a smaller scale, and related, amid much laughter, how they had once mesmerised a lady, and then found themselves unable to bring her back.
