DREAMS OF DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 18 July 1914
DREAMS OF DEATH. One night in mid-ocean, Captain Marryat awakened suddenly with the idea that someone was in his cabin, and, glancing towards the door, he saw his brother, whom he believed to be at home in England, just passing out. So deeply did the incident-im press him that he rose and made a date of its occurrence. On return ing. home he learned that at that exact hour His brother had died. Mr. Andrew Lang has pointed out how easy it is to make too much of the fulfilled dream of death. "As it is very common to dream of deaths, some such dreams must oc casionally hit the target." He tells, for instance, how during the Peninsular War three brothers quartered at the Dover camp dreamt on the same night that their mother, liying at Bradford,, was dead ; and it proved to be true. But Mr. Lang balances this with -a case of a shared but untrue dream, and the writer can add another. 'On a walking tour in Ireland, he and his brother, who shared a bed, both dreamt vividly that their sister...
