Notes that 'Lord Kelvin, although the oldest and most scientific friend [of Forbes], threw the whole weight of his authority, not once or twice, but repeatedly, when he was not asked, against the adoption of the alternating in place of the continuous current. Lord Kelvin [...] it may be remembered was equally sceptical concerning psychic phenomena'.
