News-Commentary, Drollery


Spiritualism, Charlatanry, Commerce, Periodicals

    Discusses an advertisement for the American spiritualist periodical Herald of Progress, which it notes is edited by Andrew J Davis, who has now 'connected himself with a "Co."'. Supposes these business people are 'importers of revelations and spiritual articles in general from the other world', but thinks 'importers' might mean 'impostors'.
