Eastbourne as a lecturer on Mesmerism. I was not altogether unacquainted with the subject, for some years before I had been present at a lecture on electro-biology, when the truth of that science was partially demonstrated in my own person. My limbs were made rigid; my eyes and mouth became fixed at the will of the Operator; but some experiments that succeeded on other subjects did not succeed with me, and no other e?'ects than those I have stated could be produced on myself. Regarding the matter simply as a psychological curiosity. I thought but little of it afterwards, until the arrival of Mr. Powell in his professional capacity, when I witnessed his experiments in public, and also at my own house. He endea~ voured to mesmerise me, but without effect. He tried my children, but on one of them only could he succeed. This was my eldest daughter. Um der his in?uence she soon became apparently unconscious, and fell into a state of coma and in this state did a variety of things, her eyes being shut the whole time. At the Operator's suggestion she went into the next room and played the piano in a style different to her own, and on becoming herself again, stated that she was perfectly unconscious of what she had been doing, and quite ignorant of anything that had transpired.
