Harris, Thomas Lake

Brotherhood of the new life; letter from Thomas Lake Harris with passing reference to recent criticisms.

T.L. Harris Publishers, Santa Rosa, California. 1891, 15, [iii]p., a paragraph-long declaration of intent is tipped onto title page as issued, plain printed wraps. Fountaingrove library, vol. 1, no. 2. This work offers Harris' defense against critics of his communal organization. In it appears, among other themes, Harris' explanation of his earlier wooing of the wealthy Laurence Oliphant and his mother, into the community as a purgative for Laurence's formerly tawdry existence as an English clergyman. Although the Oliphant's later withdrew from the Brotherhood in 1881, Oliphant himself continued to believe in Harris' psychic powers.
