I left the store that night after closing up and I began the nine mile walk home. My car broke down two days ago and I was forced to walk everywhere, which I didn't mind. I was only a few miles from my apartment when I felt as though I was being followed.
I subtly quickened my pace and crossed a street. When I got to the other side, I turned around to see no one there. I became confused but shook it off and continued walking. Just then I felt a large arm wrap around my neck.

These academics included Henry Sidgwick, the founder of Newnham College - and one of the founders of the SPR, Society of Psychical Research, the 'other' institute aside from the Ghost Club to investigate seances and the afterlife.

So - spirits emerging from cabinets, automatic writing slates, images in mirrors, table rapping, ectoplasm, spirits 'rings', spirit photography, was any of it real?

His exploits became infamous - at 18 he kidnapped his rich wife-to-be and spent 3 weeks in the Tower of London for it. He showed his bravery by becoming a naval hero - and promptly returned to London to woo Nell Gywn and many actresses of the London stage. But as a poet, he had a love of acting and theatre, and trained his mistress Elizabeth Barry to become the greatest tragic actress of her age.
He had life long friendships with Nell Gwyn and Aphra Behn, the first professional female playwright. His lifestyle soon took a toll during his 20s, along with the 'merry gang' of the Royal court, each night was spent gambling, drinking with wine and women.
