I am here, Helen:
Well you have written enough for tonight, and I will say only a few words and stop if the little lovesick girl does not interfere. I suppose, though, she will have to say a word or she will not sleep tonight, as you mortals say. Well, go ahead and tell him that you love him. You should be ashamed to try and deceive him so.
(Mary now takes a hand in telling Helen what she wants her to say):
Well, Leslie, don’t you believe her, for you know that I love you, and she is only jealous because I love you more than she does her soulmate. Of course I will interfere whenever I get the chance to tell you of my love, and Helen is real mean to try and make you believe that I am trying to deceive you. But she will tell you differently, I know. Won’t you Helen?
(Now Helen writes):
Yes, Doctor, I was merely joking, for of all the sick girls that I have ever seen, I don’t think I have ever seen one so sick as your Mary. Now she says that I must not say that, so you see I can’t please her. Now, come Mary, was I right when I told him that you would deceive him, or when I said that you were lovesick? Well, I won’t deceive him, and I suppose I won’t have to say anything more.
So you see, Doctor, she acknowledges that she is a little lovesick girl and is not happy unless she can tell you so.
But remember, Doctor, that she does love you, and you should be a very thankful man to have such a beautiful and loving soulmate. Well, sweetheart, I will not write more.
(Dr. Stone then asked if she felt his kisses, and Helen resumed):
Mary says that they were so quickly given that she did not have time to know whether she felt them or not. She says, Tell him that when he kisses her, to have them longer drawn out, as she doesn’t like these quick kisses.
She says that she does kiss him, and sometime she will bite him, just to let him realize that she is kissing him.
So with our love to both of you, I will say good night.
Your own and true loving,
Postscript by Dr. Stone:
This message shows that spirits like a little fun and enjoy it as much as mortals, and are just as natural in their existence as mortals are here.
