Transcript of the seance held at the RF Burton Public Library, in which Dizelle Soup made contact with Mr. Underby, as heard by Lo Pixie Artful.

”i decided to write down, in my little diary, as much as i could remember of what people said and did at that horrid seance. perhaps it will help. i wrote as one might write a play, for i do love the stage… for, up there, one is always adored, and nobody really gets hurt! here it is, then…”

”… and i ran and ran, until i came to a park, and cried for a little while… and then i transformed into my owl shape, and flew up onto the roof… mr tenk was there too, tho’ he didn’t recognise me…”

Dizelle Soup: Quite fatigued…

Dizelle Soup: Did he speak?

Stargirl Macbain: We can’t let him do anything to that little girl.

Augustus Dayafter: Mr. underby was quite clammy looking

Dizelle Soup: I believe I need a breath of fresh air Dr…

Dizelle Soup: Ah thank you

Wiggy Undertone: Well, thank you all for an interesting evening.

Dizelle Soup: It was a pleasure to meet you Dr.
