Since the first edition of this book appeared (1897) a considerable number of new and
startling ghost stories, British, Foreign and Colonial, not yet published, have reached me.
Second Sight abounds. Crystal Gazing has also advanced in popularity. For a singular
series of such visions, in which distant persons and places, unknown to the gazer, were
correctly described by her, I may refer to my book, The Making of Religion (1898). A
memorial stone has been erected on the scene of the story called “The Foul Fords” (p.
269), so that tale is likely to endure in tradition.
