Though a F.R.S. and a Professor of Chemistry, the Doctor had no more idea of what constitutes evidence than a baby.  He actually mixed up the Tyrone with the Lyttelton ghost story!  His legend of Queen Mary’s jewels is derived from (1) the note-book, or (2) a letter containing, or professing to contain, extracts from the note-book, of a Major Buckley, an Anglo-Indian officer.  This gentleman used to “magnetise” or hypnotise people, some of whom became clairvoyant, as if possessed of eyes acting as “double-patent-million magnifiers,” permeated by X rays.

“What follows is transcribed,” says the Doctor, “from Major Buckley’s note-book.”  We abridge the narrative.  Major Buckley hypnotised a young officer, who, on November 15, 1845, fell into “a deeper state” of trance.  Thence he awoke into a “clairvoyant” condition and said:—

QUEEN MARY’S JEWELS

“I have had a strange dream about your ring” (a “medallion” of Anthony and Cleopatra); “it is very valuable.”

Major Buckley said it was worth £60, and put the ring into his friend’s hand.

“It belonged to royalty.”

“In what country?”

“I see Mary, Queen of Scots.  It was given to her by a man, a foreigner, with other things from Italy.  It came from Naples.  It is not in the old setting.  She wore it only once.  The person who gave it to her was a musician.”
