Mediumship isn't my most knowledgable area. Wasn't Palladino the medium that Houndini attempted to frame, at one point?

No, that was Mina Crandon, who used the name "Margery." I wrote an essay on her at:

"A cantankerous, vain, difficult person" - what an apt description of Mr. Randi himself! :-)

Mr. Prescott,

about Palladino and the Feilding's report, I really think it's essencial to you read these articles:

Eusapia Palladino’s Sapient Foot: A New Reconsideration of the Feilding Report (?)
http://www.cicap.org/en_artic/at101008.htm

The articles of Wiseman and the article of Polidoro tries to explain the Feilding's report in normal ways. There's a lot of dicussion with Mary Rose Barrington, Fontana and others about this.

Best wishes,
Vitor

I read Wiseman's article and Barrington's critique some time ago. Wiseman, IMO, has zero credibility as an investigator after the Natasha Demkina debacle. His "explanation" of the Palladino sittings can work only if the experimenters (all of whom were veteran debunkers) had lost their senses and turned into deaf and blind idiots.

However, I'll look for Barrington's further comments on the subject, just for fun. Thanks for the heads-up!
