The Borley rectory writings on the wall is one of the most interesting manifestation of the famous Borley rectory haunting, which was probably the first case of ghost hunting in history. they believed the writings had come from a young deceased catholic woman who wanted her body to be discovered and receive a proper christian burial ceremony. she was trying to communicate with Marianne, wife of the reverend Lionel Foyster, the couple living in the rectory in October 1930. we can read “ Marianne… please help get” and “ Marianne light mass prayers”. Marianne wrote that she couldn’t understand some of the writings.
Letter written by Emma Hauck to her husband while in a psychiatric hospital. The words ‘sweetheart come’ (‘Herzensschatzi komm’), are written over and over filling the surface of the paper. Circa 1909.
