"History shows that every intelligent man who has gone into this investigation, if he gave it adequate examination at all, has come out believing in spirits; this circumstance places the burden of proof on the shoulders of the skeptic."
– James H. Hyslop, Ph.D. professor of logic and ethics at Columbia University

After several sessions he turns friendly and reveals his name and London address which were later verified. The fact that this spirit, unknown to anyone at the session, "dropped in" uninvited eliminates the chance that the sitters were using any form of ESP.
