Speaker possessed by Red Indian Chief - 1874

Loughborough Advertiser - January 15th 1874

An oration was delivered in the Working Men’s Club Room, Quorndon, on Sunday evening, by Mrs Hitchcock, inspirational speaker, from Nottingham. The room was crowded with a very respectable and intelligent audience, who listened with breathless attention to the eloquent address, the subject being “Where are the dead?”

After elucidating this theme for upwards of an hour, the lady was controlled by an American Indian chief, who had passed away many years ago. This control was by the desire of a Leicester gentleman, who had listened to her during the afternoon, at Loughborough, and was anxious, if possible, to be informed of the manner in which the Indians first received the English on their emigrating to that country. Much interesting information was elicited, and the people appeared generally to appreciate what they heard. Several people from Leicester who were present, strongly invited the lady orator to visit them at Leicester, and give them a similar treat.
