I asked a similar question before but this one is a little more specific.
If anybody has any anecdotes or facts about Mercedes Talma I would be very appreciative to hear them.

I have read a Talma anecdote.

It was about the Evelyn Nesbit, Harry Thaw and Stanford White affair (love triangle and murder), in 1906.

You can search about this case in internet. It is very difficult for me tell you the details in a foreign language. My English is not very well.

There is a stage musical and a film about this subject.

The murderer Thaw, was sent to the State Hospital for Criminally Insane, but he escaped in 1913.

The World’s News (November 22, 1913), reported that after receiving “a mental impression”, Talma notified to the police that fugitive Harry Thaw was near Sherbrooke in Quebec.

The following morning, Thaw was picked up by the police in that city.

This is only a summary. The entire story, you can find it in William Rauscher and Mike Cavenney´s book “Servais Le Roy Monarch of Mystery”.

The life, magic and anecdotes of Servais, Talma and Bosco, are very, very interesting.

Saludos

I only speak English and Norwegian, but I know someone who can translate Spanish for me.
