SUDDEN DEATH

“I received a card from the Vice-Chairman…” 

‘Every member will have heard the news of the sudden death of Mr Harry Price…’

“My family commitments in the late forties prevented my attending many Ghost Club meetings…” 

“...but I had arranged to be present at the meeting scheduled for 21 April 1948.”

“The card that Harry Price sent to me from his home in Pulborough…”

“...saying that he was looking forward to meeting me,

may well have been the card he posted before returning home that day in March 1948

...when he sat down in his armchair and died almost instantly.”
