On offer is an interesting, original 19th Century manuscript letter handwritten by W.R. Ellis who writes to Alabama spiritualist and medium Herman Snow (1812-1905). The letter offers a fascinating insight to local, contemporary beliefs. The writer asks for a copy of an address by "Prof A R Wallace" titled "If a man die[s] shall he live again?" He writes: "...most especially do I desire to read what he has to say upon the proof afforded by Spiritualism of a natural immortality...." "I am in a section of our country wedded to old theological dogmas. I see nothing and know nothing of the claims of spiritualism. Can you not 'minister to my needs' by sending me something of his lectures that can enlighten me?" 2pp, 5" x 8". VG cond.
