with Stanislava P, materialisation medium

Photograph 7

This experiment, conducted 23rd June 1913, was attended by Herr von Kaiser, Herr Sch., Princess R., and Prof. Schrenck-Notzing.

As was common procedure in all of Prof. Schrenck-Notzing's experiments, the medium put on her specially-made costume in the presence of Mrs Schott and was examined by Dr. E. and Prof. Schrenck-Notzing. This costume was made out of fine transparent material to rule out the possibility of hidden packets, veils and material. Only her naked body was under the costume. She was not allowed to wear shoes. An examination of the hair, done up in a braid, and of the ears, mouth, etc, was also carried out by Dr. E and Prof. Schrenck-Notzing as part of the regular procedure.

In the photograph below Stanislava is wearing a whole tricot, with wide full bags for her hands, and a veil covering over her head. The fastening of the head veil and the tricot were lead-sealed.

After each experiment an examination of the medium and cabinet was always undertaken. This again further eliminated the possibility of fraud. In the experiment below the veils and lead seals were left intact after the experiment and during the process of materialisation - as they were in all the experiments.

Prof. Schrenck-Notzing says on page 257 in his book Phenomena of Materialisations, "It is interesting to note the difference between the regular square thread structure of the white veil, covering the hands, and the marking of the mediumistic product. A piece of the black veil seems to be drawn back into the mouth by Stanislava, so that the process of the penetration of the veil is not clearly shown. For this reason the experiment was repeated under the same conditions, with the head veil drawn more tightly, and the suggestion was made not to draw it into the mouth. But the experiment, in any case, is evidential, since the medium had no materials at her disposal with which she could have brought about such a result, outside her dress".

The repeated experiments, carried out 1st July 1913, were once again successful. The tighten veils on the mediums hands and head were untouched. Prof. Schrenck-Notzing said "The conditions of attachment in the experiment of the 1st July did not allow any further possibility of a fraudulent production of these phenomena."
