The Pig In The Dining-room






Mrs. Atlay, wife of a late Bishop of Hereford, dreamed one night that
there was a pig in the dining-room of the palace. She came
downstairs, and in the hall told her governess and children of the
dream, before family prayers. When these were over, nobody who was
told the story having left the hall in the interval, she went into the
dining-room and there was the pig. It was proved to have escaped from
the sty after Mrs. Atlay got up. Here the dream is of the common
grotesque type; millions of such things are dreamed. The event, the
pig in the palace, is unusual, and the coincidence of pig and dream is
still more so. But unusual events must occur, and each has millions
of dreams as targets to aim at, so to speak. It would be surprising
if no such target were ever hit.

Here is another case--curious because the dream was forgotten till the
corresponding event occurred, but there was a slight discrepancy
between event and dream.
