Mrs. Atlay, wife of a late Bishop of Hereford, dreamed one night thatthere was a pig in the dining-room of the palace. She camedownstairs, and in the hall told her governess and children of thedream, before family prayers. When these were over, nobody who wastold the story having left the hall in the interval, she went into thedining-room and there was the pig. It was proved to have escaped fromthe sty after Mrs. Atlay got up. Here the dream is of the commongrotesque type; millions of such things are dreamed. The event, thepig in the palace, is unusual, and the coincidence of pig and dream isstill more so. But unusual events must occur, and each has millionsof dreams as targets to aim at, so to speak. It would be surprisingif no such target were ever hit.Here is another case--curious because the dream was forgotten till thecorresponding event occurred, but there was a slight discrepancybetween event and dream.
