About this Item

1 p. 11Ó W x 9 1/2Ó H. The broadside announces a debate on Spiritualism at AllenÕs Hall La Porte on July 28, at 7:30 PM. The Question for the debate is, ÒDoes the Bible warrant us in believing that the principal phenomena of modern spiritualism are produced through the agency of human spirits formerly embodied on this earth.Ó The name of the ÒaffirmantÓ is excised neatly from the document. (Did he or she Òchicken outÓ?). The ÒrespondentÓ is named as Rev, [sic!] F. H. Berrick of Lowell, Massachusetts. Admission was 10 cts. The location is uncertain, but there is an AllenÕs Hall in La Porte, Indiana allegedly named after Colonel John Allen, a Kentucky lawyer, who was killed in the Massacre of River Basin in 1813. The county is in northwestern Indiana. There is also a published speech by a C. W. Cathcart of Indiana, on Rivers and Harbors, delivered in 1847 and published then by Washington Blair & Rives (printers). Despite the uncertainty of date and location, this is a fascinating mid-19th C. document on Spiritualism. Edges chipped. Old central fold. Name excised (half of one line of text). Toning. Else, Very Good, with dramatic textual impact. Bookseller Inventory # 10612
