This issue of Mindfield: The Bulletin of the Parapsychological Association features a reprint of William James' 1899 entry on Telepathy in Johnson's Universal Cyclopedia. On other historical matters, Carlos Alvarado contributes a scholarly piece on some "forgotten mesmeric phenomena" that include reports of perceiving animal magnetism, affecting plants, and mediumistic expressions.

Elsewhere in the issue, PA President Jim Carpenter's column discusses finding "a good home" for psi phenomena. Russell Targ summarizes a report on remote viewing authored by him, Harold Putoff, Edwin May, and Beverly Humphrey.  Brian Josephson, the 1973 Noble Prize winner in Physics, gives us his reflections on his work and experiences on psi.  John Palmer presents a survey of the effects of the change of policy to no longer publish full papers in the PA Proceedings.  We include a summary by Maria Luisa Felici and Giulio Caratelli of Il Mondo del Paranormale and Gerd Hövelmann contributes the abstracts in English of the Zeitschrift für Anomalistik in addition to the latest installment of his bibliography, Articles Relevant to Parapsychology in Journals of Various Fields.
