A Murder on the Eve of St. John. A Weird Ghost Story from Switzerland
Frank Cowper Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine
Spiritualism, Psychical Research
Before abstracting the ghostly narrative, considers whether it is 'a genuine experience' or 'merely spun from the imagination of the writer, in which case, of course, it would lose all interest'. Later states, 'Clearly Mr. Frank Cowper should immediately place himself in communication with the Society for Psychical Research, and if there be any truth in his narrative a picked body of psychical researchers should spend the Eve of St. John in that ruined chalet'.
