[continued  from last entry, below]

“After the ascent of untold areas a mighty doorway loomed before me. Easily, without any feeling of motion, I drifted through and found myself on the top of a round ball, brightly yet imperfectly lighted by a single green comet. All around were strange plants swaying as though trying to dispose of their purple cup-shaped flowers in which ignited grotesque spiritual beings, resembling the writhing, attenuated bodies of snakes, yet with the eyes of humans.

“Now, when they perceived me standing in their midst they began to chant in weird, guttural tones, so that I thought they were pleased that I had come amongst them; but as I listened more intently I heard the true import of their words.

“‘O man of the earth!’ they cried. ‘Thou hast driven us from our bodies and left our earthly homes to be occupied by other souls, thou hast experimented upon us, and we can never progress in the spiritual realm until we return to the earth and finish our existence there. Thy pride hast caused thee to seek out things that men should never know! But light has dawned! The long, long night of ignorance is fading before the dawn of inspiration. The kingdom of justice is at hand. No longer shall men waste their lives trying to seek out the mysteries of God.’

“I looked. Lo! everything about me was undergoing a transformation.

“A great change came over me. I grew dimmer, thinner, weaker, smaller; and other transformations took place that no human being can describe. I longed to be back on earth, and tried to shut out the Babel of voices, but all effort was useless. It was like the shrill of a flute with the thunder of great guns. At length I resolved to remain perfectly still and with my silence every sound was hushed.

“‘What would you have me do, O spirits of other worlds?’ I whispered. Then many voices cried:

“‘Let our bodies go free! Let our bodies go free!’”

“‘But who are you? And how can I help you now?’ I pleaded desperately. The myriad voices continued with increasing clamor.

“‘We are spirits who have been driven from their bodies by the foolish work of man. Among us are those whom you claim to love, your wife and both your sons. We wish our earthly bodies freed, as God originally intended.’

“‘I am willing to aid you,’ I replied. ‘Never before did I realize the extent of my sins. Tell me what to do.’

“Then gradually three wraithlike objects took form before me. They appeared as far away as a mirage on a lonely desert and yet they stretched over an endless abyss by which I stood. They were so vast, so weird, and yet by a subtle sixth sense I recognized them as the spirits of my wife and sons.

“The first one spoke, ‘O man of the earth,’ it breathed, ‘return thou and free my body. I am thy wife. Fail not my bidding, else thou shalt be turned into a poisonous vampire plant, remaining in the plant kingdom ten thousand years.’

“I trembled with cold terror. Then in the distance I saw streaks of pale purple light and had a nebulous presentiment that the spirit of my first-born child would speak to me next.

“Before me out of ether appeared two gliding phantoms to which I can give neither name nor description. ‘Return thou to earth and free my body,’ commanded the one threateningly, yet speaking as from a great distance.

“‘I never dreamed of the extent of my sin,’ I murmured to myself, as I wiped the black snow from my thin, flimsy body, which was already taking on the shape of an immense green pitcher plant, with hideous purple flowers.

“Another phantom appeared before me. ‘When thou hast free [sic] our bodies * * * .”
