Summary - Some information on the second sight.

The contributor heard from Mary, his grandmother's sister, that he should not tell anybody if he saw something unnatural. She said that some people could see funerals before they happened. This ability could be passed on, from man to woman and from woman to man. If he wanted to see something, he had to put his right foot on the seer's left foot, and his right hand on her left shoulder, and look at the same place. If he saw something he was not to speak of it but to pass a Bible over his eyes three times. He would not see any visions after that.
