INTRODUCTION
T
HIS
book is stated
to contain a series of Messages given by my father, W. T. Stead, in
1914, two years after
his death on the
Titanic.
To many this may seem a startling
statement, and one which cannot be accepted without definite proof.Personally I feel and know that I am in touch with my father and that he
is the authorof these Messages.In this Introduction, I should like to give the reader proof that would leave him
absolutely without doubt that communication is possible and that my father was able to
give these Messages through Madame Hyver. Evidence other than that obtained through
personal experience is hard to collect,
and for my personal experience you have only myword. Nevertheless, I give it, with
the other evidence I have been able to gather together,and if it does not convince the reader I shall be more than satisfied if it sets him on
theroad to investigation.
When I was in America in 1913 my father told me at a seance that he was in
touchwith a medium in France. From time to time in the years that followed
he reminded me of 
this. In 1918 he told me very definitely at a public meeting of the W. T. Stead Bureau,when Mrs. Wricot was the medium, that he wanted me to bring out a book. When I
questioned my ability to find the
time for writing, he stated that I need not worry about
that, for he would supply the material. He only wanted me to
be ready to do what he
wished with it when it came to hand.I made a note of this, but heard nothing further until l was asked in January of this
year, by Mr. Newall, of 
The Weekly Despatch,
to look through some Messages
purporting to be
from my father. These Messages, he said, were given through a French
medium. This fact
at once naturally aroused my curiosity and interest. I spoke with my
father at a sitting (for the Direct Voice) which Mrs. Osborne
Leonard was holding thatevening. He mentioned the Messages, and again reminded me that
he had prepared me fortheir coming. Next day M. Victor, to whom the Messages had been sent from France,
called on me and brought with him the
bulk of them for my perusal. When I had read
them I had little doubt that they were the Messages about which my father had spoken
tome.
M. Victor, who is not a Spiritualist, though since reading these and other messages
his
interest in the question has been greatly stimulated, received
the Messages through a
relative for whom he
had translated Magnussen's book, "God's Smile," into French. Thisrelative, who is acquainted with Mme. Hyver,1
