Moon sign weekly horoscope 2014

The starting-point for preparation of the original version of this key, in my 1998 BSJ Christmas Annual a€?Entertainment and Fantasya€?: The 1940 Dinner, was a partial one by Harry Hazard, Jr. Two listed in Smitha€™s minutes, Frank Henry and Malcolm Johnson, were old associates of Christopher Morley from his Doubleday years, and early Irregulars, but are not in the photograph nor in surviving copies of 221B from that night. Reviewing Russell McLauchina€™s 1946 memoir of his youth, Alfred Street, I reported that he wrote in one chapter about his boyhood interest in Sherlock Holmes going beyond mere enjoyable reading of the stories.
He was born in 1894, and was nine years old when the Return of Sherlock Holmes stories began to appear in Colliera€™s Weekly in 1903. I was too young to know the wave of dismay that went round the English-speaking world when Sherlock and Professor Moriarty supposedly perished together in the Reichenbach Fall, but I can well remember the sombre effect on my ten-year-old spirits when I first read the closing paragraphs of the Memoirs. Elmer Davis, born the same year as Morley, wrote in his introduction to The Return of Sherlock Holmes in their 1952 Limited Editions Club appearance: a€?We who were born around the year 1890 have seen many things that we would just as soon have missed seeing. I can testify to the domestic excitement among subscribers to Colliera€™s, and gratefully acknowledge the self-abnegation of my parents who let me have first look at the issue that finally came in with The Return of Sherlock Holmes .
Thanks to William Gillette, the second establishing factor in Russell McLauchlina€™s account in Alfred Street.
In the Sherlock Holmes Collections Newsletter, June 2009, I wrote the a€?50 Years Agoa€? column about Evelyn Waugha€™s 1959 biography of Msgr.
I actually heard John Bennett Shaw explain the Cult of Sherlock Holmes and began my collecting mania with the Shaw 100, and organize my bookshelves by the religious categories: Canon, Apocrypha, and Writings about the Sacred Writings.
2011 will be the 100th anniversary of the lecture a€?Studies in the Literature of Sherlock Holmes,a€? and by it the founding of Sherlockian scholarship, by Ronald Knox. For those bibliographers, a€?Studies in the Literature of Sherlock Holmesa€? has been published six times, the first being The Blue Book (conducted by Oxford undergraduates) Vol.
As a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford in 1911, Christopher Morley heard Knoxa€™s lecture a€?Studies in the Literature of Sherlock Holmesa€? and wrote about it in Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Of special note is that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote a letter to Knox dated July 5, 1912, which Waugh quotes in his book. In the letter Conan Doyle plays the Game and refers to the commentators as the learned and profound Sauwosch and the no less erudite Piff-Pouff, and ended with a€?renewed amazementa€”at the trouble you have taken.a€? The Great Game and Sherlockian studies were blessed by the Literary Agent.
There to supplement his meager stipend as chaplain he began writing classic detective stories, publishing six in all including five novels and a short story featuring Miles Bredon, who is employed as a private investigator by the Indescribable Insurance Company. The criminal must be mentioned in the early part of the story, but must not be anyone whose thoughts the reader has been allowed to know. No hitherto undiscovered poisons may be used, nor any appliance which will need a long scientific explanation at the end. No accident must ever help the detective, nor must he ever have an unaccountable intuition which proves to be right. The stupid friend of the detective, the Watson, must not conceal from the reader any thoughts which pass through his mind: his intelligence must be slightly, but very slightly, below that of the average reader. Twin brothers, and doubles generally, must not appear unless we have been duly prepared for them. In his will, Ronald Knox left his manuscripts and copyrights to Evelyn Waugh and the royalties to the Asquith family. The game of applying the methods of the a€?Higher Criticisma€? to the Sherlock Holmes canon was begun, many years ago, by Monsignor Ronald Knox, with the aim of showing that, by those methods, one could disintegrate a modern classic as speciously as a certain school of critics have endeavoured to disintegrate the Bible. Waugh notes that thirty years after a€?Studies in the Literature of Sherlock Holmesa€? was published, it had brought Knox a form of fame he found tedious. Both Christopher Morley and Ronald Knox died in 1957.A Knox is gone but not forgotten and is especially remembered by us for starting Sherlockian scholarship. Wella€” I am no expert in false-memory disorder, but must point out that none of us remembers Ronald Knox starting Sherlockian scholarship.
We have come to think that a€?the Mastera€? and a€?the Sacred Writingsa€? are religious affectations derived from Knoxa€™s talk. As for Morley bringing Knoxa€™s paper to America, we dona€™t even know if he heard it in 1911. But let us assume Morley did a€” for it reinforces my point that he didna€™t bring it to America and spread the gospel. Only in 1926, said Morley in the Saturday Review of Literature that year, was his enthusiasm rekindled. It was a game Morley proceeded to transfer to a luncheon club of his wherein the BSI gestated (or perhaps marinated) at his favorite Manhattan speakeasy. In 1930 a€?Studies in the Literaturea€? came out in America, but it wasna€™t Morleya€™s kind of game, and he went his own way.
Roberts earned this accolade through two critical works, influential where Knox was not except in terms of refutable error that Roberts exposed in the lesser of them, a 1929 leaflet called A Note on the Watson Problem. Smith explained that Knoxa€™s paper, appearing in Essays in Satire, a€?elicited a rejoinder in 1929 from S. He said so because of the biographical treatment of Watson that Roberts was commissioned to write in 1930.
Davis was also at Oxford in 1911, and his Constitution refers a€?the study of the Sacred Writings.a€? But Davis was a devotee long before, and in any event the term a€?Sacred Writingsa€? does not appear in Knoxa€™s talk.
There is no hint of Knox in that 1941 memoir about the BSIa€™s beginnings, nor in Morleya€™s rewriting of it in 1946 for the Baker Street Journal. We Baker Street Irregulars possess more than a few religious parallels in our structure and lore.A For example, Sherlockianaa€™s beginnings in a 1912 parody of contemporary biblical exegesis by Ronald A. Poor Jon, Ia€™m sorry to hear that you lost your faith in Knox and no longer believe that Christopher Morley brought the gospel to America.
Roberts goes on to say that it was Desmond MacCarthy who first printed his early life of Watson essay in Life and Letters.A After he wrote about Watsona€™s later life the two essays were combined for the Criterion Miscellany series and there by association with Frank Morley.
Vincent Starretta€™s The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes reprinted a€?A Final Examination Paper on the Life and Work of Sherlock Holmesa€? by E. The Knox brothers, much like the Morleys, had an early interest in Sherlock Holmes and wrote to Doyle in 1905 their a€?Sign of Foura€? letter.A Knox also wrote the Decalogue Symposium, an early play with Sherlock Holmes along with sixteen named characters from history and literature along with New Women, Bimetallists, Flagellants, Seventh Day Baptists, and Choruses of Virtue and Vices.
I realize some Sherlockians are deeply invested in the Knox myth, even unto multiple revenue streams for the BSI over the next two years. And people at that time, when so much was suddenly stirring in canonical scholarship, did not believe Knox was its founder. The question of the Sherlock Holmes canon is once more before the public, and it will not be out of place to make some remarks on it in these columns, the place in which the Higher Criticism of the Holmes saga was first originated by Frank Sidgwick in 1902. It is not unfair to say that the article then published by Sidgwick has determined the whole tendency of this branch of learning.
I am interested in what you wrote me in your last letter: you spoke of Monsignor Ronald Knox and Mr. In fact there is another important a€?Clinical Notea€? from Morley that you omitted to mention in your debate. Well, like Lady Frances Carfax, therea€™s still some fight in the corpse, but we shall see.
1931a€™s Saturday Review comment nodded to Knox in the course of Morley lavishly praising S.
Elmer Davis, born the same year as Morley, wrote in his introduction to The ReturnA  of Sherlock Holmes in their 1952 Limited Editions Club appearance: a€?We who were born around the year 1890 have seen many things that we would just as soon have missed seeing. 1.The criminal must be mentioned in the early part of the story, but must not be anyone whose thoughts the reader has been allowed to know.
But it points clearly to a time when Goda€™s mercy will be withheld from those who have persistently rejected the authority of Heaven. Notice that the final issue involves a false allegiance to the beast power, so often referred to in Bible prophecy. Those who do not have the mark of the beast are described as obedient to those commandments, and the rest suffer the wrath of God. At last, the majority of eartha€™s inhabitants will accept the authority of an antichrist counterfeit power, in disobedience to Goda€™s great ten commandment laws. The interest of multitudes has been destroyed by the influence of pastors who would not take seriously the solemn words of Johna€™s prophecy.
Soon one third of the heavenly host had joined the disaffection of Lucifer, and the great controversy was under waya€”a controversy that was to rage for over 6,000 years, and which would finally demand the decision of every living creature in heaven and on earth.
Here it will continue until it reaches a desperate climax in the division of eartha€™s multitudes for or against the commandments of God. With devilish cunning, he has experimented with successive forms of warfare against God and His plan for this world. Please note that the beast of Revelation 13 symbolizes a gigantic antichrist power that attempts to displace God entirely. Later in this same chapter, we read that this beast power will exercise so much influence over the earth, that it causes men to receive a mark in their foreheads or hands (Revelation 13:16). We will not dwell on them at this point in detail, but let us remind ourselves again that this issue will involve eternal life or death for all. He has not the faintest idea about the beast or his mark, even though his destiny hinges upon the issue.
The answer is found in verse 17, a€?These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.a€? There it is.
These kingdoms are referred to often in Bible prophecy and are called by name in some related prophecies of Daniel. Although Daniel had seen living wild beasts like those portrayed in the first three prophetic symbols, he had never seen anything resembling the fourth terrible beast. The extension of its cruel domination of the earth has been well documented in the pages of ancient history. Fierce tribes came sweeping down from the north country, and overwhelmed the territory of Western Europe, dividing it finally into ten parts. They were the Anglo-Saxons, Alemanni, Heruli, Vandals, Ostrogoths, Visigoths, Suevi, Lombards, Burgundians and Franks. This indicates that a human being would be at the head of the power represented by the little horn. Jesus had forgiven a man his sins, and the scribes said, a€?Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies?
First of all, the papacy did arise in western Europe, at the very heart of the territory of the pagan Roman Empirea€”in Rome itself. The Vandals, Ostrogoths and Heruli were Arian powers that strongly opposed the rise of the Catholic Church. Everyone who has any knowledge of the Middle Ages is acquainted with the fact that millions of people were tortured and killed by the Catholic inquisitions. As far as the world was concerned, and by all outward appearance, the Catholic Church was dead.
We are now ready to identify that strange, composite animal described in the book of Revelation.
But that wound was to be healed, and finally the whole world would give its allegiance to the papacy again. At that time, the Pope was actually made king once more, and the Vatican City was set up as a political sovereign power. The incredible influence of the papacy in world affairs is attested to by the headlines in todaya€™s newspaper.
Where did she receive the authority to rule over the world for 1,260 years and to persecute so many millions of people for their faith? Abraham had grown up right there in Mesopotamia, near the place where the great tower of Babel was attempted, and where the empire of Babylon developed.
Because Satan worked so closely through that nation to destroy Jesus, pagan Rome is represented by the same symbol in prophecy as the devil. The Bishop of Rome, in the seat of the Caesars, was now the greatest man in the west, and was soon forced to become the political as well as the spiritual head.a€? The Rise of the Medieval Church, p. Because a mark of the dragon power is to counterfeit and substitute, we will be able to see in this religio-political system t he operation of Satan at his infernal best.
At that time, the day was adopted by the papacy and called the birth of the SON, instead of the birthday of the SUN. As you can readily see, the adoption of December 25 was based purely upon the heathen observance of the festival of sun worship. Even the symbols, the bunny rabbits and eggs, are retained as reminders of its pagan origin. If tradition and heathen custom have crept so easily into the church, what about other doctrines? May our eyes be opened to recognize these counterfeits and to remain loyal to the exact truth in its original form.
We grant that it is possible for such a thing to be a mere happenstance if we had only this one mark of identity to lean upon. We have already learned that this power was to counterfeit many of the great truths of God. In Revelation 7:2, 3, we learn that the seal of God is placed in the forehead, just as the mark of the beast is set in the forehead.
It must contain the name of the authority, the office or title of the authority, and the territory over which he has power. The Ten Commandments, containing the seal of God, are set up in competition with the mark of the beast. Their sacred day was the first day of the week, which they named Sun-Day in honor of the sun god.
William Frederick states the same historical truth: a€?The Gentiles were an idolatrous people who worshipped the sun, and Sunday was their most sacred day. The Church, using the power of binding and loosing which Christ gave to the Pope, changed the Lorda€™s day to Sunday.a€? Page 243. Stephen Keenana€™s A Doctrinal Catechism has this to say: a€?Questiona€”Have you any other way of proving that the Church has power to institute festivals of precept?
179, makes this startling admission: a€?If the Bible is the only guide for the Christian, then the Seventh-day Adventist is right in observing the Saturday with the Jew. And it not only compelled all to keep Sunday, but also urged all persons to labor on the seventh day under pain of anathema. The sign, or seal, of Goda€™s authority (Sabbath) is displaced by the papal institution of a substitute mark (Sunday) that she claims as her authority.
Yes, of course, it is inconsistent; but this change was made about fifteen centuries before Protestantism was born, and by that time, the custom was universally observed. Then, the true Sabbath and the counterfeit (Sunday) will be so revealed that no one can escape a decisiona€”a decision to keep the true Sabbath with mind and hand, or to submit to the counterfeit Sabbath of the papacy. Certainly there is no spot on earth where freedom is so fully enjoyed as in our own United States.
The Pilgrim Fathers, to escape the religious persecutions of the papacy, fled to the New World of America where they could follow their conscience in worship.
Since the first beast (papacy) received its wound in 1798 when General Berthier took the Pope captive, we should look for the second beast to be coming up at that time. It came up peacefully, like a lamb, and the absence of crowns reveals that there were no kings at the head. It came up peacefully, democratically, and established itself upon the two great principles of Protestantism and republicanism. It may seem incredible to us as we read these things today that the United States would ever be persuaded to enact religious laws, and try to force people to worship a certain way, but prophecy has never failed. This opens the way for all the present confused, contradictory local state laws to be replaced by a national law that will standardize the enforcement of Sunday all over America.
Those who refuse to accept the false day of worship will face fines, boycott, prison and finally, the threat of death. Harris (a€?The Creeping Man,a€? BSI) described the spirit of the BSIa€™s annual dinners at the Murray Hill Hotel and Cavanagha€™s in the 1930s through the 1960s, before growing numbers brought it to an end by forcing the annual dinner to move to many round tables (instead of close proximity as shown in the 1947 photograph on the websitea€™s The BSI page), in huge banquet rooms in overplush hotels and clubs, ever since. Colling, a theater and broadcast media friend of Morleya€™s from their Hoboken theater days in the late 1920s. The intolerable pathos of the cigarette-case on the rocky ledge; the firm clear handwriting of that last stoic message!
And for another twelve pages of his introduction, Elmer Davis expounded upon the exegetical scholarship that was applied, initially by excited young readers like himself in 1903-04, to the Adventures and Memoirs stories as well in light of the revelations of the Return stories in Colliera€™s Weekly. Smith was born in 1894, like McLauchlin, hence nine years old when the Return stories began to appear in Colliera€™s.
I shall look into Edgara€™s correspondent at the time, Vincent Starrett, but I know that in his autobiography Born in a Bookshop he related being captivated by the historical novels of A.
Sveum championed the Baker Street Irregulars party line that Ronald Knox created Sherlockian scholarship, and Christopher Morley brought it to America and spread the gospel.
Knox, so I foolishly challenged him to come to Minnesota and, using Oxford Union rules, debate the Motion that Ronald Knox founded Sherlockian Scholarship. I thought everyone knew that Sherlockian Higher Criticism and calling Holmes the Master was due to Knoxa€™s religious influence. Living in Shropshire, he was able to devote his time to translating the Vulgate Bible into English, a project that took nine years. Since then, the thing has become a hobby among a select set of jesters here and in America.
Knox wrote to an editor who asked for a review, a€?I cana€™t bear books about Sherlock Holmes. We werena€™t around in 1911, nor in the early a€?30s when the scholarship took off and the BSI and Sherlock Holmes Society were founded. It was as you say a rather juvenile talk, with its Monsieur Piff-Pouffs and Herr Bilgemanns.
Others had done so a decade earlier, Arthur Bartlett Maurice in The Bookman in America and Frank Sidgwick in The Cambridge Review in England, in January 1902 as Hound of the Baskervilles was appearing serially.
Someone else did, and was in the thoughts of the BSIa€™s and Sherlock Holmes Societya€™s scholars and founders in 1934. Morley was inflicting examinations in the Canon upon his brothers Felix and Frank long before 1911, and forming, in turn-of-the-century Baltimore, a Sherlock Holmes club with other youngsters. By the time Morley arrived in Oxford in 1910 at age 20, having discovered girls, booze, and ambition, his boyhood Sherlock Holmes enthusiasm had gone dormant a€” and by his own admission it was still dormant when he came home in 1913 to begin his career as a writer. Not by Knox, but an unnamed printer he met in New York; and what rekindled it was an impromptu trivia game of the kind Morley had often played as a boy with brothers and chums.
Doctor Watson, published by Faber & Faber in early 1931, had tremendous impact upon devotees on both sides of the ocean.
Watson: A Chronology of Their Adventures also gave Roberts first place among students of the Canon, while referring to Knox but once.
There was little religious terminology in Knoxa€™s paper, which satirized German scholarship, not religious rites.
What Morley identified specifically as the BSIa€™s inspirations were William Gillettea€™s Farewell Tour of 1928-32, Robertsa€™ Doctor Watson, Starretta€™s Private Life, and Davisa€™s Roberts-besotted review of Starrett in the Saturday Review.
Knoxa€™s talk cracked up Oxford lads compelled to read nineteenth-century biblical criticism, but in our scholarship and movement, Knox is only a latter-day saint: no evidence of having been in Morleya€™s mind when his zest for Holmesiana was revived in 1926, nor when he turned his luncheon club into a Baker Street club, nor when he founded the BSI.
Our scholarshipa€™s starting point is Frank Sidgwicka€™s examination of Watsonian chronology in 1902, and our movement was triggered by S. In that year the editor of the Cambridge Review invited me to review the omnibus edition of the short stories of Sherlock Holmes together with R.


If there is anything pleasant in criticism, it is finding out what we arena€™t meant to find out. Sveum quoting an article of mine from the Baker Street Journal at me, but that was written in 1992, when my BSI history researches were still young. Our Wiggins recently re-asserted the faith in an encyclical letter of sorts to Irregulars, though strangely it did not arrive in my in-box. He was mainly concerned with pointing out discrepancies a€” and very serious ones a€” in the dates of the a€?Hound of the Baskervillesa€?; and since that time, critics have faithfully followed his method, have concentrated their attention on questions of chronology, of text, of the minutiae of the literary technique. His Chicago Tribune column was written not for us, but for the masses, a€?the great unobservant public, who can hardly tell a weaver by his tooth or a compositor by his left thumb.a€? He knew better. We are Sherlockians and Irregulars, and should adhere to what Christopher Morley called a€?the metal actuality of Baker Street doctrine.a€? Like Sherlock Holmes, we do not take things on faith.
Parliament and the Savoy Hotel were blown up and the Minister of Traffic was hanged from a lamp-post.
Morleya€™s column in the Baker Street Journala€™s debut issue would have been a new opportunity to say he heard Father Knox give his talk at Oxford in 1911, or cite its supposed foundation of our scholarship, or the making of BSI.
Of course this is not a declaration of Knoxa€™s a€?supposed foundation of our scholarship, or the making of BSI,a€? as you say. Robertsa€™s pamphlet Doctor Watson (1931) -- a€?a delightful bit of serio-spoofa€? -- stating that a€?his essay, together with that of Father Ronald Knox in Studies in Satire [sic], is a necessary addition to the Holmes-Watson codex.a€? (Saturday Review of Literature, March 7, 1931, p. I have to wonder why Morley put these references to Knoxa€™s paper in Stanley Hopkinsa€™ mouth, not his own. It will be an unparalleled performance on the part of God in His relationship to the human family.
At last, the world shall stand divided into two great camps: those who worship the true God, and those who worship the beast of Revelation 13.
Often it is dismissed as a confused, insignificant letter, applying only to a local problem in the early church. The story of that beautiful angel who coveted the position of God Himself is revealed through a number of Old Testament prophetic writings.
Just as the rebellion began by disloyalty to the authority of God, so it will end by a defiance of His authority as vested in the law of His government. Through various insidious approaches, he has continued his efforts to overthrow the authority of God.
Finally, those who have the mark will suffer the terrible wrath of God as described in Revelation 14:9, 10. How earnestly should we seek to understand who the beast represents and how we might avoid that mark! In order to understand the beast we must go back to the Old Testament book of Daniel and compare Scripture with Scripture. Here we have represented that grand empire of Babylon, so well symbolized by the king of beasts.
The three ribs probably symbolize the three provinces of that kingdoma€”Babylon, Lydia, and Egypt. But this powerful nation was also to be divided, as verse twenty-four indicates, a€?And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise.a€? Please notice that this is Goda€™s interpretation of the ten horns on this animal. Seven of those tribes are still in existence to this very day, having grown into modem nations. We dare not guess or speculate concerning the historical identity of this a€?little horna€? of prophecy. The eighth mark is also given in verse twenty-five, a€?and think to change times and laws.a€? Apparently, in its bitter opposition to the God of Heaven, in speaking great words against Him, this power also seeks to change the great law of God. In other words, God closes every other option, and forces us to the only possible conclusion: the Catholic Church alone fulfills all the points of identity established in Daniel 7.
It was a religio-political system quite unlike anything that had been seen in the world before that time. We need only to be reminded that the Catholic Church has ever attributed to itself the power to forgive sins. From a book written by a Catholic cardinal, which also bears the sanction of the Church, we read, a€?The Catholic Church a€¦ has a horror of blood. Please note this: the Catholic Church has removed the second commandment from her doctrinal books and catechism, because it condemns the worship of images. After exactly 1,260 years, in fulfillment of the prophecy, she lost her control of the world.
Let us read the description of that beast once more, which has the body of a leopard, the feet of a bear, and the mouth of a lion.
From that day to this, the strength of the papacy has been advancing with tremendous strides.
Almost every utterance of the pope is published to the ends of the earth, and millions and millions of people look to the papal power as the greatest influence in politics today.
When he was cast out of heaven, there were only two people on the earth, and they represented the entire world.
In Jeremiah 6:2 we read, a€?I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman.a€? Who is Zion? Cain was on the dragona€™s side and wanted to substitute his own way instead of the way God had commanded him.
The dragona€™s followers concentrated in Babel and tried to defy God by building a great tower that was to reach up to heaven.
Remember, the prophecy spoke of enmity between the seed of the woman and the seed of the dragon.
Thousands and thousands of Christians were martyred under the terrible persecutions of the cruel Roman emperors. So what he could not do through force, the dragon would now attempt by strategy and deception.
It is very significant that the beast is actually made up of parts of the lion, the leopard, the bear and the nondescript animal of Daniel 7. Just as was the case with Cain, substitutes were fashioned to meet the commandments of God. Please take note how easily a pagan institution can slip into Christian churches and can even be passed along in Protestantism. That day was dedicated to Ishtar, the goddess of reproduction, because of the new life and growth in nature. Those pagans chose the rabbit as a symbol of Ishtara€™s day because it was the most prolific reproducer. These examples have been presented merely to show how easily the devil was able to impose pagan ideas upon that church.
The ancient method of deriving the number of a name is to take the numerical value of all letters and add them up to get the sum. But in the weekly Catholic newspaper, Our Sunday Visitor, of April 1915, we have the interesting statement that the letters of the official title are inscribed in the popea€™s miter. By getting the numerical value of the Roman numerals of the title Vicarius Filii Dei, we actually come to a definite number 666.
But the fact is that this is the tenth of a long list of characteristic marks that the Bible uses to identify the beast power. It was a combination of pagan ideas with Christian doctrine which formed a conglomeration of confusion, well designated as a€?Babylona€? in the Scripture.
The seal of Americaa€™s president contains the following words: Bill Clinton, President, United States of America. Romans 4:11 reveals that a€?seala€? and a€?signa€? are the very same thing, being used interchangeably in the Scripture. Now, in order to reach the people in this new field, it seems but natural, as well as necessary, to make Sunday the rest day of the Church. The next several quotations are taken from well-known Catholic authorities that express clearly the claims of the papacy on the attempted change. Protestants a€¦ profess great reverence for the Bible, and yet by their solemn act of keeping Sunday, they acknowledge the power of the Catholic Church.
They have continued the custom, even though it rests upon the authority of the Catholic Church and not upon an explicit text in the Bible.
At that time, when the issues stand clearly revealed, individuals will accept the seal of God or the mark of the beast. In the next chapter you will learn the identity of the nation which will influence the world to accept the counterfeit Sabbath, and which will seek to enforce that mark of loyalty to the papacy. Please note that Wesley was looking for a nation to be rising within a very short time that would meet the description of the prophecy. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.a€? In other words, the time would come when the United States would change its peaceful, democratic tone. With the incredible strides being taken toward federal control of individual freedoms, this step to regulate the day of worship will not seem so drastic when it actually does take place.
When the Sabbath question is thus made a national issue, people will be forced to accept one side or the other. You cannot shrug off the implications of this revelation concerning obedience to the Sabbath commandment.
To keep the spirit alive, we have this department for occasional items of Irregular controversy. 15), plus the signatures in surviving copies of 221B: Studies in Sherlock Holmes, edited by Vincent Starrett, that were distributed to the attendees that evening as the first collection of BSI Writings about the Writings.

Warren) Force and Warren Jones, are presumably in the photograph since their signatures are in surviving copies of 221B from that night, but they cannot be even tentatively identified at this time.
20 against the wall behind Steele and Morley has sometimes been taken to be a Murray Hill Hotel waiter.
I know of no explicit statement by him about reading the stories at that time in that magazine, but ita€™s hard to doubt it when we read, in his very first letter to Vincent Starrett, dated October 15, 1936 (found in its entirety on pp. Conan Doyle before he was by Sherlock Holmes; and being born in 1886, he had reached a somewhat less impressionable age than had Morley, Davis, Smith, and McLauchlin in 1903.
Hill Barton,a€? BSI) at the 2010 Sherlock Holmes Collections weekend at the University of Minnesotaa€™s Andersen Library. Your humble Irregular historian endeavored to demonstrate that this is a myth a€” myth of long standing, but myth nonetheless. 2 (July 1912), 111-32, and was included in Edgar Smitha€™s 1958 The Incunabular Sherlock Holmes and James Edward Holroyda€™s 1967 Seventeen Steps to 221B. The lecture was a mock-serious inquiry into inconsistencies in the Sherlock Holmes stories, and a satire on Biblical Higher Criticism. Ronald Arbuthnott Knox was an English theologian, priest and crime writer born February 17, 188, 122 years ago. The Waugh biography was controversial by implying that Cardinal Bourne, Archbishop of Westminster, did not use Knoxa€™s talents wisely. The rule of the game is that it must be played as solemnly as a county cricket match at Lorda€™s: the slightest touch of extravagance or burlesque ruins the atmosphere.
What you think you remember is what others have told you a€” and odds are, they werena€™t around then either. Sveum in mentioning where it appeared over the decades glossed over the fact that it didna€™t appear anywhere Holmes devotees could read it until 1928 in England and 1930 in America, when it was included in Knoxa€™s Essays in Satire.
But when I started researching the BSIa€™s history, reading dozens of essays and hundreds of letters by our founding fathers, slowly it dawned upon me that they werena€™t talking about Ronald Knox. The evangelistic Morley had all the makings of a cult leader from the start, without Knox to inspire him.
On the sole occasion he referred to it as having been given at Oxford while he was there, in 1944 in Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Leavitta€™s indispensable a€?Origin of 221B Worship,a€? a first-hand account of our origins, tells how competitive examination in the Canon at those lunches in the late a€™20s and early a€™30s gave birth to the BSI. Another that October was Vincent Starretta€™s Private Life of Sherlock Holmes a€” a rapturous tribute barely mentioning Knox. Roberts in A Note on the Watson Problem, and the foundation for what was to follow may be said by that action to have been laid.a€? The importance of that observation by a student, contributor, and editor of Holmesian scholarship like Edgar W. It not only entranced, it showed what could be done, prompting further effort by others a€” not least Christopher Morley.
Only much later was Knox grafted onto our movement retroactively, assigned a place he had not occupied in the 1920s and a€™30s.
As I said in my opening statement, I was raised in the Knox faith myself; it was only considerably later that I realized how little there is to it. But a kind Irregular forwarded it to me, and in it I saw quoted the same two authorities on behalf of the Knox myth. Knoxa€™s paper did not set the tone for all subsequent students of the Canon, certainly not for Starrett himself whose 1933 Private Life of Sherlock Holmes did not echo the Knox tone in the slightest, which is why we still read it when we dona€™t bother to read Knox. However, he faces one basic problem in trying to prove that the Knox essay was the basis for Sherlockian scholarship. It opens thus:a€?a€? a€?All the Knoxes loved jokes and spoofs, as Penelope Fitzgerald shows in her wonderful joint biography of them, The Knox Brothers, just republished.
The piece in question is not, actually, a trial version of the classic biography; it is, rather, a gentle but well-merited attack on the atrocious Holmesian scholarship of that other a€?incunable,a€™ Monsignor (then Father) Knox. Smith did not bother to reprint Knoxa€™s paper, then or later, nor has any other editor since. But ita€™s an enthusiastic evaluation of Knoxa€™s essay and certainly more than a call for attention to any student of the Corpus Watsonicum. For almost 6,000 years, His punishing judgments upon the most wicked men have been tempered with mercy. The Bible makes it very clear that life or death revolves around the final decision concerning the beast of Revelation 13.
For some reason the book called Revelation is counted a sealed book, instead of the obviously revealed truth that its name implies. Isaiah says in reference to this glorious being: a€?How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! The purpose of this booklet is to expose the massive assaults that have been made, and are being made, by Satan against the foundations of truth. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. In the second chapter of Daniel the same four world kingdoms are symbolized by four metals in the great statue of Nebuchadnezzara€™s dream. We must not make the mistake of falsely identifying the little horn power, because it will prove to be the great antichrist power of history.
This means that the little horn would be a different kind of power from those purely political kingdoms that preceded it. Instead of saying, a€?a time, times, and half a time,a€? it says, a€?a thousand two hundred and threescore days.a€? Thus we see that the two periods of time are exactly the same. Nevertheless when confronted by heresy a€¦ she has recourse to force, to corporal punishment, to torture. Remember, that we have noted how the papacy began its reign, by order of Justinian, in 538 A.D.
Yes, the wound has certainly been healed, and the world continues to follow after the beast.
By deceiving Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, Satan led all the world astray and came into temporary possession of the earth. The plan failed, of course, and that site of the tower of Babel later became Babylon, which in 606 B.C. It was a blasphemous idolatry, filled with immoralities, licentious ceremonies and degrading rites. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns a€¦ and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. Goda€™s illustrative depiction of the papacy reveals that she was made up of parts from all those old pagan kingdoms.
How clearly these statements show that the papacy received her seat and power from pagan Rome! All Christian groups recognize that Easter Sunday is often as much as five weeks apart from one year to the next.
The very word Easter has been transliterated from the name of the goddess Ishtar, whose worship was memorialized by the adoption of Easter.
As the papacy developed, it was open to the reception of unbiblical customs that marked it clearly as the real counterfeit power described by God in Revelation 13.
We do not have any commandments concerning the observing of Christa€™s resurrection or His birth. So far in our study, we have described nine identifying marks of the beast power and its application to the papacy.
If we want to apply this test to the papacy, we must find the official name of the pope, who is the head of his church.
It only adds weight and strength to that which has already been said in making the application to the papal power. When that seal is placed upon a law or an official document, it shows that the presidenta€™s authority is supporting that declaration. In other words, the Sabbath is the seal of Goda€”the mark of the only one who can create and who is authorized to rule the earth.
It appeared more convenient to let the pagans keep their own day of worship on Sunday and ask the Christians to join them in it.
At this time, it was necessary for the Church to either adopt the Gentilesa€™ day or else have the Gentiles change their day. 13, 1955 edition, states: a€?The Bible does not contain all the teachings of the Catholic religion, nor does it formulate all the duties of its members. The book of Revelation describes a final edict of this eartha€™s governments that will actually seek to enforce the mark upon all the world.
Secondly, this second beast would come up a€?out of the earth.a€? This is in contrast to the first that rose out of the water.
The United States of America was the only nation a€?coming upa€? to power in 1798, as the first beast received its deadly wound. Under some influence, it would begin to compel worship, a€?saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. Church and state will be united enough to enforce religious laws and will thus closely resemble the papal system. Based on Goda€™s Word we have shown it to be the counterfeit Sabbath set up by the beast power.
But since hea€™s the only person in the photograph young enough to have been Peter Williams, who from the 1920 U.S. But I shall investigate and report, and would be happy for any other examples readers of this may send me. Ronald Knox in his 1918 autobiography A Spiritual Aeneid writes that part of a dona€™s function is to read papers to undergraduate societies.


Certainly you know a great deal more about it than I do,a€? and he continued for four pages to discuss the criticism in detail.
The sixth and last child of an Anglican Bishop, he attended Eton College and took a first in Classics at Balliol College, Oxford, in 1905. He wrote the introduction to The Best Detective Stories 1928-1929, and in it he codified the rules of the gamea€”and Golden Age mysteries were considered games, different than our game. They were brilliant, came from middle-class families, were educated at Oxford, were temporary schoolmasters, wrote satire, and enjoyed the company of the British Catholic aristocracy. XIV, Detective Stories, the rules that he first wrote in 1924 were reprinted with commentary.
Watson: The Chronology of Their Adventures and Thomas Blakeneya€™s Sherlock Holmes: Fact or Fiction?
And after that, only a few times at infrequent intervals, the last 26 years ago, and never in the Baker Street Journal or Sherlock Holmes Journal.
Knoxa€™s paper, in fact, is only the seventh in the anthologya€™s chronologically ordered contents.
And the decisive factor was another development of which Starrett and Morley were keenly aware, and led to Englanda€™s society as well: a 1931 monograph riveting Holmes devotees as Knoxa€™s paper had not.
Bella€™s anthology Baker Street Studies, said: a€?It is true that as far back as 1912 a young priest named Ronald Knox had contributed an article to the Oxford Blue Book in which a tongue-in-cheek probing of some esoterica in the Saga was tentatively undertakena€? a€” words lending little support to the idea that Knox was our scholarshipa€™s fountainhead. It was in Morleya€™s hands quickly, and he praised it lavishly in the Saturday Review of March 7, 1931. But in 1966 he was writing about events nearly forty years earlier; he was now seventy-nine years old and in the last year of his life.
In the early 1930s, Starrett paid very little attention to Knox, as wea€™ve seen a€” but great attention to S. As boys, for example, they wrote a letter to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, denouncing inconsistencies in the Sherlock Holmes stories and including five dried orange pips, in allusion to the threatening letter in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Robertsa€™ Note on the Watson Problem as a a€?gentle but well-merited attack on the atrocious Holmesian scholarship of that other a€?incunablea€™, Monsignor (then Father) Knox.a€? BSJ (OS), vol. Roberts as the two a€?incunablesa€? (whatever that meant,) of your modern Baker Street studies, but I dona€™t think you knew that Mr.
Perhaps Steve Rothman, reading this, will rush to do so in the so-called Year of Ronald Knox coming in 2011, in hopes Ia€™ll stop pointing out this embarrassing fact. Perhaps one clue is found in the remark a€?I have a sad feeling that many of your members only read their own stuffa€? -- for by that time Morley was very tired of the BSI, in fact declaring that there would be no more BSI dinners (a draconian position from which Edgar Smith dislodged him only with great difficulty). Never before, to my knowledge, had Morley mentioned Knox anywhere, let alone describe his 1911 paper.
But now the measure of rebellion reaches a point which makes it necessary for God to intervene and to expose the terrible extent of mana€™s treason against Goda€™s government. The confederation of evil will consolidate for a desperate last-ditch struggle to engage the loyalty of eartha€™s inhabitants. No one ever saw a creature with the body of a leopard, the mouth of a lion, and the feet of a bear. Just as we have the American eagle and the Russian bear in our modem political vocabulary, God used animals long, long ago to represent countries also. Any schoolboy who has studied his lessons carefully in ancient history will know that Greece arose as the next world ruler. But for a man to make such claims would constitute blasphemy, according to the Biblea€™s own definition. By comparing these Scriptures, we understand that a time is a year in Bible prophecy, times is two years, and half a time is half a year. This means, then, that the little horn power would rule for 1,260 years, instead of merely 1,260 days. Lucii Ferraris, contained in the book Prompta Bibliotheca Canonica Juridica Moralis Theologica.
Notice, please, that this beast is doing exactly the same thing as the little horn of Daniel. This is Goda€™s graphic illustration of the papal power, as it came up to exercise arbitrary authority over the earth for 1,260 years. The great controversy between good and evil, which had started in heaven, was now transferred to this planet. Do you remember how God told each one of them to bring a lamb, but Cain substituted fruit or vegetables for that which God had commanded as a sacrifice? But soon the dragona€™s followers quarreled among themselves, and Medo-Persia came into power. The masterstroke of Satan to destroy Jesus on the cross was foiled on that Sunday morning when the Crucified One broke the bonds of death in the resurrection. He would bring in pagan doctrines and philosophy from the old empires of Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome and combine them with Christian teaching. A whole set of counterfeit doctrines was added so that the papacy could gain prestige with the pagan peoples of that age. The pagans worshiped the sun, and they noticed that in December, the days were becoming shorter and shorter and the sun was getting farther away from them. If this is the number of a man, it would naturally be the man who is the head of the organization. It is the capstone proof in conjunction with all the other marks laid down so clearly in the Scripture. Now we ask, a€?What is the seal?a€? If we can establish this point, it will help us to identify the mark. The three requisites of a seal will be found only in the one that includes name, title and territory of God. And to make His law authoritative, He has placed the seal in it, showing that He stands behind every single commandment in that law.
Constantine professed conversion to Christianity and opened the doors of the church to all his heathen followers. Take, for instance, the matter of Sunday observance, attendance at divine service, and abstention from unnecessary servile work on that day. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons, in answer to a letter regarding the change of the Sabbath: a€?Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change was her act. When we understand the issues we must make a tremendous decision either to keep the true Sabbath and recognize Goda€™s authority, or to take the false Sabbath and recognize the Catholic Churcha€™s claims. 106, 107, says: a€?It is quite clear that however rigidly or devotedly we may spend Sunday, we are not keeping the Sabbath. The reason we observe the first day instead of the seventh is based on no positive command. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.a€? Then immediately John saw a second beast in vision that he describes in the next verse. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. The keeping of Sunday instead of the Bible Sabbath is claimed as a mark of allegiance to the Catholic Church by her own priests and leaders. The mark of the beast will then be placed upon all who choose to disobey the commandment of God to keep the Sabbath day holy. As the test becomes more severe, every individual must choose to obey God or man, to follow the commandments of God or tradition, to keep the true Sabbath or the counterfeit, to receive the seal of God, or the mark of the beast. Smitha€™s minutes list 35 attendees, and 35 are in the photograph, but Morley told Vincent Starrett that 36 had attended. Census was 27 or 28 years old in January 1940, it may be him; if so, since he came in black tie his father likely did too, making no. Steve Doyle will soon publish the entire letter in a book by Notre Dame Professor Michael Crowe titled Ronald Knox and Sherlock Holmes: The Origin of Sherlockian Studies.
By 1910 he was a Fellow at Trinity College, ordained an Anglican priest in 1912, and became a Roman Catholic in 1917. Knox helped Waugh by proofreading Brideshead Revisited and asked him to be his literary executor in 1950. Smith remarked in 1958 that Knoxa€™s death was a€?mourned by all who look to him as the originator of the Sherlockian critique.a€? So the notion that Knox was the genesis was afoot fifty years ago a€” though Smith, we shall see, felt otherwise. Elmer Davis, reviewing Starretta€™s Private Life in December 1933, discussed Roberts almost more than he did Starretta€™s book, without once mentioning Knox.
Messages from absent friends were read that night, from Blakeney, Starrett, Morley, and Desmond MacCarthy, but not from Knox.
Smith in Baker Street Inventory has a€?Studies in the Literaturea€? as a€?The first essay in the order of higher criticism.a€? It was not Knoxa€™s intention to start a game or a cult. By the time Smith wrote his introduction for The Incunabular Sherlock Holmes in 1958, he had done his homework too, and learned differently. Later, Ronald Knox expanded the joke into an essay called a€?Studies in the Literature of Sherlock Holmes,a€™ a parody of Biblical scholarship in which he pretended to detect, from careful study of the text, that some of the stories must be fictitious inventions by a drunken Watson. I thought it would be interesting to quote here this Knox-Roberts Sherlockian Connection so dear to Morley.
And they worshipped the dragon that gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast?
Once the symbol is interpreted in any prophecy, the rule will apply in every other prophecy. Then, to be more explicit, God added this in verse 23, a€?The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth.a€? If the fourth animal represented the fourth empire of history, then the first three would have to represent the first three empires.
Alexander the Great came marching from the west, laying the world at his feet in a very short time. In that very year the French general, Berthier, marched his armies into Rome and pulled the Pope off his throne. Verse five continues, a€?And power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.a€? How long is forty-two months?
A pure woman stands for the true church, but a fallen woman symbolizes a false religious system.
Forty days later, He was caught up to heaven in perfect fulfillment of the words of the prophecy. According to Revelation 13:2, the dragon gave the beast his power and seat and great authority.
Pagan idols were left at the door, but idols of Peter, Mary and the saints took their place.
In the next chapter we shall discover, though, that other pagan doctrines were introduced which strike at the very heart of true Bible religion. Hence, to the Bishop of Rome as head of the church, was given the title, a€?Vicar of Christ.a€™a€? At present, the popea€™s miter does not contain the Latin title, but the words are incorporated into the coronation ceremonies of each newly crowned pope. The Church could naturally reach them better by keeping their day.a€? Sunday and Christian Sabbath, pp. One will search the Scriptures in vain for authority for changing from the seventh day to the first.
The second beast, coming out of the earth, would depict a nation rising in some area of the world where there were no previous civilizations and multitudes.
By accepting the mark of allegiance to the papacy (Sunday), they reject the mark that God claims as His sign of authoritya€”the seventh-day Sabbath. At least two in the photograph are not in Smitha€™s minutesa€™ list, but in surviving copies of 221B: Studies in Sherlock Holmes signed that night by dinner attendees, William C.
Paul for theological societies and one on Sherlock Holmes for secular societies, but found the Sherlock Holmes paper would do for both since it was interpreted as a religious tract. Enthusiasm: A Chapter in the History of Religion (1950) by Ronald Knox was dedicated to Evelyn Waugh. Barton, the senior censor, confirming the a€?Hierarchya€™s displeasurea€? because it violated the unwritten law that bishops are not criticized in any public way.
The Detection Club also put out three serial novels, with each member writing a chapter full of clues and passing it on; Ronald Knox contributed to all three. Who stood out instead as source and strawman for canonical scholarship was Cambridgea€™s S. Morley, for his 1933 collection of essays Internal Revenue, added to In Memoriama€™s 1930 text a lengthy discussion of Robertsa€™ Doctor Watson; Knox went unmentioned once again. Attendees discussed the impetus behind their new club: of mention of Knox there was none, nor in connection with the BSI whose recent founding was discussed.
But his methodology is what endures.A Those that followed who played the game so well must admit that Knox was the unintended founder. Finally, one comes away from the Knox paper not really learning new or insightful about Holmes. Conan Doyle was delighted by the spoof and wrote to Ronald Knox to thank him.a€?a€? a€?Nowadays wea€™re rather more sensitive. Robertsa€™ own trial version of the same, his A Note on the Watson Problem1 of which only 100 copies were printed at the University Press, Camb., in 1929.
Obedience to God or to Satan, as manifested through the beast power, will be the only alternatives open to man. You cana€™t really know who the beast is.a€? Listen, will God warn us about the fearful danger of this beasta€”a danger so deadly that it will mean life or deatha€”and then tell us it is impossible to know what it is? And sure enough, Babylon arose very quickly to take its place as a ruler of the entire world.
Listen to these claims: a€?The Pope is of so great dignity, and so exalted, that he is not a mere man, but as it were God and the Vicar of God.
There has been only one man-child who was destined to rule all nations and who was finally caught up to Goda€™s throne. We have learned that the dragon actually symbolizes the pagan Roman Empire, as well as the devil himself. Then on December 25, for the first time, they could tell that the sun was coming back closer; the days were beginning to lengthen out again. In sharp contrast to Christianity, Mithraism recognized Caesar e as the bearer of the divine Grace, and its votaries filled the legions and the civil service. Hiscox, the author of the Baptist Manual: a€?There was and is a commandment to keep holy the Sabbath day, but that Sabbath day was not Sunday. The early Christians began to worship on the first day of the week because Jesus rose from the dead on that day. Historians record that there was something wonderful and providential about the rise of this country. That is exactly what is predicted, and it is also exactly what is shaping up right now in American politics. He took the Sherlock Holmes stories as a form of literary art and divided them into eleven characteristic divisions with Greek names.
And with the BSI launched in 1934, Knox might not have existed to tell from what Morley wrote that year. But: a€?A genial note of welcome was struck by placing in front of each member a copy of Mr. The meticulous Rodger Prescott comes nearer the point, but does not deliver the knockout blow. Or so it would seem from the first programme, called a€?Panic in the Streets,a€™ in a new series, The History of Fear (Radio 4, Monday), presented by the feminist historian, Joanna Bourke.
And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. Would He say to us, a€?You will be cast into the fire if you have the mark, but Ia€™m not going to tell you what it isa€”ita€™s just too bad if you have ita€??
And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another.a€? He saw the prophetic water just as John did, but Daniel saw four beasts arising instead of only one. Within eight years, he had completely subjugated the world and sat down to weep because there were no more worlds to conquer.
The Pope is, as it were, God on earth, chief king of kings, having plenitude of power.a€? Volume VI, pp. So these people said, a€?The sun is reborn to us.a€? They called December 25 the birthday of the sun or sun god. We know of the change only from the tradition of the Churcha€”a fact handed down to us from earliest times by the living voice of the Church.
But the Catholic Church appears and says in effect, a€?No, dona€™t keep the Sabbath; keep the first day of the week. It will be said, however, and with some show of triumph, that the Sabbath was transferred from the seventh to the first day of the week.
Knox invented a controversy about authenticity of the stories with comments by imaginary German scholars.
We must rely instead on what they and others wrote about Knoxa€™s paper around the time it appeared back then a€” to the extent that they wrote about it at all, which wea€™ve seen was very little. While it is true that Sidgwick and others wrote important papers, papers with real content, before Knox, it was Morley who put it all together. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. But he could not conquer himself; he died as a young man of thirty-three at the height of his power. Ronald Knox lived first at Lady Actona€™s Aldenham in Shropshire from 1933 to 1947, and at the Manor House, Mells, Somerset, from 1947 until his death in 1957, the country home of Katharine Asquith. Between his work in Saturday Review and his founding of the BSI, this truly was the basis of the long-term study of the Canon, both institutionally and in print. At his death the kingdom was divided among his four leading generals: Cassander, Lysimachus, Seleucus, and Ptolemy. Indeed, in one respect he was better than ever; for here in Colliera€™s appeared, for the first time in print, what has become the classic, final and unalterable portrait of Sherlock Holmes. It serves as its own divine commentary and provides the key for understanding the prophecies. His final contribution to Sherlockian literature was a€?The Apocryphal Sherlock Holmes: The Adventure of the First Class Carriage,a€? a pastiche that appeared in The Strand Magazine in 1947. Roberts a€“- and even his fellow Cantabrigian Frank Sidgwick, who first tackled Watsonian chronology in 1902. So you may imagine the thrilling excitementa€”in 1903, wasna€™t it?a€”when The Return began printing in Colliera€™s.
But what a pity that it comes branded with the mark of paganism, and christened with the name of the sun god, when adopted and sanctioned by the papal apostasy, and bequeathed as a sacred legacy to Protestantism!a€? (From a paper read before a New York ministersa€™ conference held November 13, 1893.) This great Baptist leader condenses into a few sentences all that has been said in the pages of this booklet. Weber was director of advertising at Scribnera€™s, and a mystery reviewer (a€?Judge Lyncha€?) for the Saturday Review of Literature. He had attended the 1936 BSI dinner, and would be at the 1941, a€™42, a€™43, a€™46 and a€™47 dinners as well, and the 1944 Trilogy Dinner.
