The debate was held at Touro Hall in Hartford, CT on March 3, 1858. The debate centered around the following question Do the Spirits of departed human beings continue to manifest their presence, power, and intelligence to those who still remain on earth, and in the corporeal form? *** Included with the book is a loose printed paper slip advertising a book by Brittan titled Man and His Relations. *** This book comes with a clear mylar protective cover. *** Bound by E.
