El Pensionado de Neuwelke

It is under the superintendence of Moravian directors; of whom the principal, at the times of the occurrences about to be related, was named Buch. She was of the Northern type, —a blonde, with very fair complexion, light-blue eyes, chestnut hair, slightly above the middle size, and of slender figure.
In character she was amiable, quiet, and good tempered; not at all given to anger or psnsionado but of an anxious disposition, and as to her physical temperament, somewhat nervously excitable. Her health was usually good; and during the year and a half that she lived as teacher at Neuwelcke she had but one or two slight indispositions.
She was intelligent and accomplished; and the directors, during the entire period of her stay, were perfectly satisfied with her conduct, her industry, and her acquirements. She was at that time thirty-two years of age. When some casual inquiry happened to be made as to where she was, one young lady would reply that she had been seen her in such or such a room; whereupon another would say: At first they naturally supposed it was mere mistake; but, as the same thing recurred finally spoke to the other governesses about it.
Whether the teachers, at that time, could have furnished an explanation or not, they gave none: But, after a time, things much more extraordinary, and which could not be set down to imagination or mistake, began neuwflke occur.
They were exactly alike; and they used the same gestures, only that the real person held a bit of chalk in her hand, and did actually write, while the double had no chalk, and only imitated the motion. This incident naturally caused a great sensation in the establishment. It was ascertained, on inquiry, that every one of the thirteen young ladies in the class had seen the second figure, and that they all agreed in their description of its appearance and of its motions.
The sudden apparition produced so much effect upon her that she fainted. Months passed by, and similar phenomena were still repeated. All the pupils and the servants waiting on the table witnessed this.
It was only occasionally, however, that he double appeared to imitate the motions of the real person.

Sometimes, when the latter rose from a chair, the figure would appear seated on it. Suddenly the governess became stiff and pale; and, seeming as if about to faint, the young lady, alarmed, asked if she was worse. She replied that she was not, but in a very feeble and languid voice.
A few seconds afterward, Mademoiselle de Wrangel, happening to look round, saw, quite distinctly, the figure of the governess walking up and down the apartment. This time the young lady had sufficient self-control to remain quiet, and even to make no remark to the patient.
Soon afterward she came down-stairs, looking very pale, and neuwelkw what she had witnessed. But the most remarkable example of this seeming independent action of the two figures happened in this wise.
One day all the young ladies of the institution, to the number of forty-two, were assembled in the same room, engaged in embroidery. It was a spacious hall on the first floor of the principal building, and had four large windows, or rather glass doors, for they opened to the floorgiving entrance pnesionado a garden of some extent in front of the house.
There was a long table in the center of the room; and here it was that the various classes were wont to unite for needle-work or similar ocupation.
At the head of the table, seated in an arm-chair, of green morocco, my informant says, she still distinctly recollects that it wassat another teacher, in charge of the pupils. After a time this lady had occasion to leave the room, and the arm-chair was left vacant. The young ladies inmediately looked into the garden, and there she still was, engaged as before; only they remarked that she moved very slowly and languidly, as a drowsy or exhausted person might.
Again they looked at the arm chair, and there she sat, silent, and without motion, but to sight so palpably real that, had they not seen her outside in the garden and had they not known that she appeared in the chair without having walked into the room, they would all have supposed that it was the lady herself.
As it was being quite certain that it was not a real person, and having become, to a certain extent, familiar with this strange phenomenon, two of the boldest approached and tried to touch the figure.
They averred that they did feel a slight resistance, which they likened to that which a fabric of fine muslin or crape would offer to the touch.
One of the two then passed close in front of the armchair, and actually through a portion pensioando the figure. The appearance, however, remained, after she had done so, for pensionaado time longer, still seated, as before.
Every one of the forty-two neuwrlke saw the same figure in the same way. She replied that she recollected this only: It seemed chiefly to present itself on occasions when the lady was very earnest or eager in what she was about. It was uniformly remarked that the more distinct and material to the sight the double was, the more stiff and languid was the living person; and in proportion as the double faded did the real individual resume her powers.
She herself, however, was totally unconscious of the phenomenon: She pensionaxo, herself, saw the appearance, nor seemed to notice the species of rigid apathy which crept over her at the times it was seen by others. During the eighteen months throughout which muy informant had an opportunity of witnessing this phenomenon and of hearing of it through others, no example came to her knowledge of the appearance of the figure at any considerable distance —as of several miles— from the real person.

Sometimes it appeared, but not far off, during their walks in the neighborhood; more frequently, however, within-doors. Every servant in the house had seen it. It was, apparently, perceptibly to all persons, without distinction of age or sex. It will be readily supposed that so extraordinary a phenomenon could not continue to show itself, for more than a year, in such an institution, whitout injury to its prosperity.
Some of the more timid among the girls, also, became much excited, and evinced great alarm whenever they happened to witness so strange and inexplicable a thing.
The natural result was that their parents began to scruple about leaving them under such a influence. One after another, as they went home for the holidays, failed to return; and though the true reason was not assigned to the directors, they knew it well. Being strictly upright and conscientious men, however, and very unwilling that a well-conducted, diligent, and competent teacher should lose her position on account of a peculiarity that was entirely beyond her control —a misfortune, not a fault—they persevered in retaining her, until, at the end of eighteen months, the number of pupils had decreased from forty-two to twelve.
The poor girl was in despair. It is very, very hard to bear! When asked what she meant by such an exclamation, she reluctantly confessed that previous to her engagement at Neuwelcke she had been teacher in eighteen different schools, having entered the first when only sixteen years of age, and that, on account of the strange and alarming phenomenon which attached to her, she had lost, after a comparatively brief sojourn, one situation after another.
As, however, her employers were in every other respect well satisfied with her, she obtained in each case favorable testimonials as to her conduct and abilities. Dependent enterely on her labor for support, the poor girl had been compelled to avail herself of these in search of a livelihood, in places where the cause of her dismissal was not known; even though she felt assured, from expe  rience, that a few months could not fail again to disclose it.

After she left Neuwelcke, she went to live, for neuwelkw time, in the neighborhood, with a sister-in-law, who had serveral quite young children. Thither the peculiarity pursued her. No one, therefoore, could have had a better opportunity of observing the case in all its details. In the course of my reading on this subject —and it has been somewhat extensive— I have not met with a single example of the apparition of the living so remarkable and so incontrovertibly authentic as this.
The narrative proves, beyond doubt or denial, that, under particular circumstances, the apparition of counterpart of a living person may appear at a certain distance from that person, and may seem, to ordinary  human sight, so material as not to be distinguishable from a real body; also that this appearance may be reflected from a mirror.
Unless the young ladies who were courageous enough to try the experiment of touching it penwionado deceived by their imaginations, it proves, further, that such an aparition may have a slight, but positive, consistency.
It seems to prove, also, that care or anxiety on the part of the living person may project if I may so express it the apparition to a particular spot. Yet it was sometimes visible when no such cause could be assigned. It does not appear that in this case the languor consequent upon such separation ever reached the state of trance or coma, or that the rigidity observed at the same time went as far as catalepsy; yet it is evident df the tendency was toward both of these conditions, and that that tendency was the greater in proportion as the apparition became more distinct.
Two remarkable peculiarities mark this case: It differs from other cases on record in this: This case may afford us, also, a useful lesson. It may teach us that it is idle, in each particular instance of apparition or other rare and unexplained phenomenon, to deny its reality until we can discover the purpose of its appearance; to reject, in short, every extraordinary nruwelke until it shall have been clearly explained to us for what great object God ordains or permits it.
In this particular case, what special intention can be assigned? A meritorious young woman is, after repeated efforts, deprived by an habitual apparition of the opportunity to earn an honest livelihood.
No other effect is apparent, unless we are to suppose that it was intended to warn the young girls who witnessed the appearance against materialism. But it is probable the effect upon them was to produce alarm rather than conviction. The phenomenon is one of a class. There is good reason, doubtless, for the existenceo fo that class; but we ought not to be called upon to show the particular end to be effected by each example.
As a general proposition, we believe in the great utility of thunder-storms, as tending to purify the atmosphere; but who has a right to require that we disclose the design of Providence if, during the elemental war, Amelia be stricken down a corpse from the arms of Celadon?
