The following was transcribed from audio recordings during Hans Holzer’s investigation of 112 Ocean Avenue with deep-trance medium, Ethel Johnson Meyers.
Hans Holzer: Ethel, what are your first impressions of this house?
Ethel Johnson Meyers: I’m getting an odor.
HH: What’s the odor from?
EM: I don’t know my head’s cracked.
HH: Head’s cracked? Who’s head?
EM: Mine, at the moment…I have to get used to the cold for a moment.
HH: All right. Are you comfortable?
HH: Where do you think is the center of the activities you feel?
EM: Let me relax a little more because I have two shocks and I want to see where they lead to.
EM: Right up here.
HH: We are on the third floor, the top floor of the house. The house is without heat. It’s empty and boarded up. This is the corner bedroom.
EM: You have a lot of Indians – burial ground here. Hmmpf. I feel as if I’m choked.
HH: Is there any connection of that with the house?
EM: I’ll say.
HH: What connection?
EM: Whoever lives here is going to be victim of all the anger – its blind fierceness.
HH: Whose anger is it?
