This black-and-white glass slide purports to show a man sitting on a chair with a spirit hovering at his left knee.

This is an unusual photograph among the collection of glass slide spirit images. The spirit appears to be of an African child wearing a white robe. The spirit is unusually large compared to the man and is clearly smiling.

It seems to be poorly superimposed into the photo and is not of the same quality of other images in the AJ Abbott collection.
