No doubt I presume on your valuable time to bother you with such a trivial matter, but your “Ouija” has gotten my goat. I daresay it is silly my writing you but I have puzzled that game over so much that i decided I would write you.
What i want to know is – How can that thing actually spell a word out? I do appreciate that it must be magnetism that moves the tiny table but i simply cannot see why it should spell out a word. Almost as though it could really hear what you asked. Perhaps it is a special kind of wood or something like that. I know this sounds foolish, but if it is not giving too much of your “mystery” away, won't you tell me what causes this?
Yours very truly,
K. O. Meehan
