"I have a strong sense of humour and being dead, it's very essential !"
The Edwardian stage actress Mrs Beatrice Rose Stella 'Patrick' Campbell speaks here to Ida and Louise Cook in this undated audio from around 1960.
In this unique recording, Mrs Campbell talks about her love of animals and her relief in finding that animals survive death.
She explains her efforts to reproduce her Earthly voice, for those who would doubt her identity - as recommended to her by George Bernard Shaw.
Then she shares her own philosophy and gives lots of advice to the Cook sisters on their own efforts to develop Spirit communication, adding that their group is like an “oasis in the desert” for people on both sides of life.
