Known as The Davenports, Ira Erastus Davenport and William Henry Davenport began their Spiritualism act in 1854. Their father managed them and the group was joined by William Fay. The Davenports stated that they possessed spiritual powers and to prove this they tied them selves up inside a box which contained musical instruments. Once the box was closed, the instruments would sound. when the box was opened the brothers were tied in the positions in which they had started the illusion. Those who witnessed the effect were made to believe supernatural forces had caused the trick to work.
