THURSDAY EVE. FEB. 15, 1844
Mr. QUIMBY has exhibited specimens of CLAIRVOYANCE with his intelligent young man, Lucius Bickford, [Burkmar] to our Citizens for the two last evenings, with great approbation. We presume there was no individual present who doubted the perfect success of Mr. Q. and his Clairvoyant, in all the various experiments in this mysterious and wonderful science.
A gentleman present, with whom he was in communication, was intimately acquainted with the Governor’s Palace at Havana, where he conveyed the Clairvoyant, and to the astonishment of all present, Lucius described not only that, but the other important public buildings near it; some that the gentleman himself had forgotten until reminded of them by the young man.
The perfect fairness and honesty of Mr. Quimby in the exhibitions must ensure him success and advance this new and mysterious science, to which we may revert hereafter.
