Psychic Detective Work

Many cases are recorded by the investigators in which the psychometrist

is able to "sense" a particular locality, a house, a room, a place of

business, for instance, by means of the connecting link afforded by some

physical object formerly associated with the said location. Some writers

have called this class of psychometric phenomena "psychic spying" or

"psychic detective work." One writer records a case in which he gave to

a young psychometrist a penholder from the office of a lawyer, the

latter being located about eight hundred miles away; the psychometrist

then gave a perfect picture of the interior of the far-distant lawyer's

office, the scene across the street visible from the office window, and

certain events which were happening in the office and on the street at

that particular time--all of which report was verified in detail by

subsequent careful inquiry.
