I was reading a book tonight that had belonged to my great aunt,
published in 1897: "Cheiro's Language of the Hand". Cheiro was also
known as the Count de Hamong.
I noticed that most of the plates of palm prints were dated 1894, of
course we all know that 94 is 2 X 47.
The final paragraph in the book was a defense of palmistry:
"May not, then, the soul, as a captive in the body, write on its
fleshy walls of its prison-house its past trials, its future hopes,
the deeds that it will some day realize? For if there be a soul, then
is it, being a spirit, conscious of all things, its past joys, its
present sorrows, and the future- be it what it may."
