The Lost Cheque






Mr. A., a barrister, sat up one night to write letters, and about
half-past twelve went out to put them in the post. On undressing he

saw the cheque curled round an area railing not far from his own door.
He woke, got up, dressed, walked down the street and found his cheque
in the place he had dreamed of. In his opinion he had noticed it fall
from his pocket as he walked to the letter-box, without consciously
remarking it, and his deeper memory awoke in slumber. {11a}
