But I Still Believe

In 1986, Frances passed away aged 78, still believing in fairies. The photos were admittedly faked but she insists that she really did see fairies...

Her cousin, Elsie, with whom she captivated generations, died two years later in 1988 aged 84.

"The fairies were wonderful and I try to forget all about them. You get tired of talking about them down the years. But they seem to be pulling me back - pulling me back towards the ideas I put down in The Long Blether. That we're all one, and if we don't come together there won't be any of us left."
