6 Burwood Place,
Within the last six mouths, certain facts have come under my notice, which have led me to feel an interest in so called spiritualism. I am compelled to recognize the great importance of this subject, at the same time it seems exceedingly difficult to prove its truth, or, in the [] midst of so many opportunities for deception, as this subject presents, to be able to study it satisfactorily.
I have heard heard that you have convinced yourself of the reality of "spiritualism". I should be extremely glad to learn the details of experience by means of which anyone of sound judgement and scientific habits of mind has arrived at a positive [] belied in the subject. Would you kindly let me know the facts which have led to the belief. Any such communication would of course be confidential if you so desired it. If you come to London and could spare me half an hour. I should be very glad to see you at my house.
I remain | Truly yours | E. Blackwell [signature]
