Excerpt: Visual Nerve, those upon the Ear next considered?Delusions of the Touch chiefly experienced in Sleep?Delusions. of the Taste?And of the Smelling?Sum of the Argument. You have asked of me, my dear friend, that I should assist the ?Family Library? with the history of a dark chapter in human nature, which the increasing civilization of all well?instructed countries has now almost blotted out, though the subject attracted no ordinary degree of consideration in the older times of their history. Among much reading of my earlier days, it is no doubt true that I travelled a good deal in the twilight regions of superstitious disquisitions. Many hours have I lost??I would their debt were less !??in examining, old as well as more recent narratives of this character, and even in looking into some of the criminal trials so frequent in early days, upon a subject which our fathers considered as a matter of the last importance. And, of late years, the very curious extracts published by Mr. Pitcairn, from the Criminal Records of Scotland, are, besides their historical value, of a nature so much calculated to illustrate the credulity of our ancestors on such subjects, that, by perusing them, I have been induced more recently to recall what I bad read and thought upon the subject at a former period.
