    Adams, Radical Literature in America (this edition): "This edition was banned from the mails soon after publication, under the Comstock law suppressing the circulation of obscene literature." Streeter VII, 4282.

    Unlisted by Flake, A Mormon Bibliography, for references on p. 28, to an article on Oneida written by T.W. Higginson in the Woman's Journal:: "The Community makes an impression utterly unlike that left by the pallid joylessness of the Shakers, or the stupid sensualism which impressed me in the few Mormon households I have seen....There is no coercion to keep them, as in Mormonism, and there are no monastic vows, as in the Roman Catholic Church." Not in BAL. Not in Richmond.
