Earliest newspaper from the Oneida Community...

Item # 217644

April 15, 1843

THE PERFECTIONIST, Putney, Vermont, April 15, 1843.

This is the earliest Oneida Community newspaper we have, from just 2 years after its founding. This small folio-size newspaper only published twice a month, by J. H. Noyes & J. L. Skinner. Within these 4 pages the editors espouse their Christian philosophy which became the foundation of the Oneida movement, which would take on greater presence in the decades to come. Pg. 2 is mostly taken up with a continued article: "The Birthright of Israel--NO. 5, Prophicies Relating to the Restoration of the Jews". Must of the remaining content in this issue is religiously oriented. This issue is 4 pgs., in excellent condition & measures about 12 by 16 inches.
