Spooks Who Wear Clothes
THE NAKED TRUTH FROM SIR A. CONAN DOYLE.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle writes as follows to the "Daily Express" with reference to the interesting problem raised by a correspondent who wanted to know why spirits wore clothes
To the Editor ot the "Daily Express":—
Sir, — In reply to your correspondent's question, the reason why spirits wear robes is that modesty does not cease with this life. Has it ever been the custom for any of the Churches to describe the angels as nude?
