Most people know the stories of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. The author, Mark Twain, was deeply interested in psychic phenomena. In the late 1850's, Mark Twain and his brother, Henry, worked the riverboats on the mighty Mississippi River between St. Louis and New Orleans.
While staying at his sister's house, Mark Twain had a vivid dream in which he saw his brother's body lying in a metal coffin. It rested on two chairs in his sister's sitting room and had a bouquet with a single red rose sitting on Henry's chest.
Twain awoke and went for a walk, still believing the dream was real. When he finally remembered it had been a dream, he returned to his sister's house and told her of the dream.
A few weeks later, Twain and Henry were returning from New Orleans on separate riverboats, when Henry's ship, the Pennsylvania, had a boiler explosion. Henry was brought to Memphis where he died a few days later.
Whereas most of the dead were placed in wooden coffins, the women of Memphis raised enough money to place Henry in a metal coffin. When Twain went to his sister's house, he found his brother lying just the way he had in his dream, except there were no flowers. As he stood there, a woman walked up beside him and placed a bouquet of white flowers on Henry's chest. In its centre was a single red rose.
