Item # 676406
THE CIRCULAR, Oneida Community, (New York), Sept. 5, 1870  An interesting newspaper from the famous Oneida Community in New York, an early "commune" in experimental living. Various religiously-themed content but a bit of reporting of news of the day as well.
One report; "Polygamy Discussion in Utah" which mentions in part: "Dr. Newman...and Elder Orson Pratt of Salt Lake City...had a public discussion...on the question, 'Does the Bible sanction Polygamy? The discussion continued three days...failed to reach the real position of the Bible on the marriage subject...." with more on the discussion concerning the Mormon practice.
Eight pages, 10 by 14 inches, never bound nor trimmed so it folds out to one large sheet, great condition.
