"SPIRITUALISTS ... KNOW JUST WHERE THEY ARE GOING ... & HAVE LESS TO UNLEARN" DOYLE, ARTHUR CONAN. Autograph Letter Signed, "AConan Doyle," to Gerald Carlton, Jr., suggesting two of his own books for Mrs. Kyle: The New Revelation and The Vital Message. 1 page, oblong 8vo; folds. With the original envelope. (MRS) Crowborough, 17 August 1921

Additional Details

"That was indeed a splendid result. If Mrs. Kyle gets in touch with the literature of the subject--even my two little books 'The New Revelation' and 'The Vital Message' would help--she would be able to fix her experience 'into' its plan in the general scheme. We have all eternity to progress in, and cannot therefore expect sudden improvements after death. There is some broadening of knowledge, especially religious knowledge--nothing more, save in the case of the Spiritualists who know just where they are going and can therefore adapt themselves more rapidly to the new conditions & have less to unlearn. . . ."
