Dear Sir, In advices just received from St. Petersburg
I am requested to translate and forward to The Scientist for publication
the protest of the Hon. Alexander Aksakoff,* Imperial Counsellor of State,
against the course of the professors of the University respecting the Spiritualistic
investigation. The document appears, in Russian, in the Vedomostji, the
official journal of St. Petersburg.
This generous, high-minded, courageous gentleman has done
the possible, and even the impossible, in order to open the spiritual eyes
of those incurable moles who fear the daylight of truth as the burglar fears
the policemans bulls-eye.
The heartfelt thanks and gratitude of every Spiritualist
ought to be forwarded to this noble defender of the cause, who regretted
neither his time, trouble nor money to help the propagation of the truth.
