Heron, E. (n.d.). The Story of Yand Manor House. Retrieved from

Excerpt: By looking through the notes of Mr. Flaxman Low, one sometimes catches through the steel?blue hardness of facts, the pink flush of romance, or more often the black corner of a horror unnameable. The following story may serve as an instance of the latter. Mr. Low not only unravelled the mystery at Yand, but at the same time justified his life?work to M. Thierry, the well?known French critic and philosopher. At the end of a long conversation, M. Thierry, arguing from his own standpoint as a materialist, had said: ?The factor in the human economy which you call ?soul? cannot be placed.? ?I admit that,? replied Low. ?Yet, when a man dies, is there not one factor unaccounted for in the change that comes upon him? Yes! For though his body still exists, it rapidly falls to pieces, which proves that that has gone which held it together.? The Frenchman laughed, and shifted his ground.
