Man is a Spirit

The Occult Review
(november 1927, p. 336)

To the Editor of the Occult Review.

Sir, — Since "W. K." uses my name I must tell him that before he lectures Spiritualists he should gain some idea of what it is that they teach. We are all well aware that the spirit is an infinitely refined thing and that the etheric or astral body is merely a temporary covering for it. There may be, and probably are, many covering envelopes, each more tenuous than the other, but since the spirit within is the essential thing, that term is used in descriptions.

A. CONAN DOYLE.
