I did not call Maudie the first week or ten days after Pat left; I didn't feel easy about her.
"Maudie" doesn't show up until the second part, but the set-up and lead-in need to be seen for the proper introduction.....
A convulsive restlessness again seized upon the psychic, and "Maudie" asked us to sing.
"Maudie" then requested that the pieces of cone be put together and placed on the floor beside the table.
At this moment the psychic again began to twist and turn as if in pain, and at last the little voice of "Maudie" anxiously asked: "_Is Mr. Garland going to take a train at seven o'clock? _"
A hammering was then carried on as if within the cone, and "Maudie" spoke, telling us to go down and get supper, as before.
After some moments of waiting, "Maudie" said: "Mr. Mitchell says take the table away and put the cone in its place."
"Maudie" then asked us to take up the larger half of the cone and unite it with the smaller part, and lay the entire cone flat across the table.
Again "Maudie" spoke, asking us to restore the table and cone to their former positions.
I don't suppose Mrs. Smiley realizes that 'Maudie' would be called by a doubter a falsetto disguise of her own voice, and 'Wilbur' a shrewd and humorous personification of her subconscious self; or, if she does, she probably ascribes it to the process of materialization which 'takes from' the medium.
