The Rev Spencer Nairne was walking with a fellow passenger, John Chambers, on their way to join a ship for Norway when Nairne saw an acquaintance of his walking towards him. It was Miss Wallis, who had worked for his extended family as a governess. There was no doubt that it was she for they had known each other for over 20 years, since he was a.young child.
He made towards her and returned her smile of recognition, but just as he was about to address her, she completely disappeared even though they were within touching distance of each other. Nairne looked around for her thinking that he must have been distracted or something, but although he searched in nearby shops she was nowhere to be found.
Nairne went on his trip but some weeks later in London, he came across Miss Wallis talking to members of his family. He was about to ask her about their encounter in Aberdeen when Miss Wallis good-naturedly remonstrated with him for cutting her in the street. Nairne explained that, although he had seen her and she had obviously seen him, she had disappeared as he was about to address her. She said that this was extraordinary since that was exactly as she had seen the event. She had remarked to her brother and companion at the time that that sort of behaviour was most unlike Nairne.
Some time later, they were discussing the strange event again when the question of dates came up. Miss Wallis claimed that she had been in Aberdeen with her brother sometime towards the end of July. Nairne knew exactly when he was there from his itinerary- 31 May. They had obviously seen the double of each other and that was why each had disappeared so suddenly.
