Message from Stead recited by medium

Chicago Examiner

Narrative Said to Be From Other World,

Told in Church of Soul


     Members of the Church of the Soul in the Masonic Temple yesterday listened to what purported to be a psychic message from William T. Stead, the British editor, author and scholar, who perished aboard the Titanic.  For nearly half an hour Miss Cora L. Y. Richmond, the medium, recited the message.

     "There is no claim that Mr. Stead is speaking to you," said Miss Richmond before entering the trance condition.  "His message has come and your pastor will give it to you in the exact words."

     After speaking of the insufficient number of lifeboats the voice said: "The commander, the officers and the crew did their best, but they could not create lifeboats."
