A certain newspaper from an unknown country published an article,
followed by other periodicals, with respect to a formal conference to
be held regarding Spiritism and with the participation of Mr. Home, Mr.
Marcillet, Mr. Squire, Mr. Delaage, Mr. Saudou, and Mr. Allan Kardec
among others. The readers who might have heard about it should be informed
that not everything printed is Gospel, even if it’s in a newspaper,
and in this case it is just a canard (duck, but also meaning hoax-NT),
dressed with coarse salt and without the seasoning of the spirit. We would
not be surprised one day by reading the conclusions of this convention
and even with the citation of statements allegedly uttered. This would not
cost them a thing and in the absence of anything better, it would fill out
the columns of the newspaper.
