Fifty Years A Medium by Estelle Roberts



I should like to express my gratitude to all those who have kindly consented to the publication of their private experiences, and in particular to my old friends Maurice and Sylvia Barbanell, whose detailed records, made at the time, have served to stimulate my own memory, and to recall the experiences of themselves and of others, which I could not share, since I was in a state of deep trance.


My deep gratitude is also due to Margaret and Percy Illingworth, without whose untiring devotion this book would never have been written, and to Hannen Swaffer who has so generously contributed the Foreword.





1889 - 1919
