Excerpt from The Sabbath: A Sermon Delivered in the City of Washington There are two very common and very popular objections to the Sabbath, which, because of their popularity, become highly dangerous to the best interests of man. I shall therefore take up these objections, and examine them in the light of scripture and reason. I do it the more readily, because they proceed not merely from the scoffer and the infidel but from many who profess to love our Lord Jesus Christ and revere the institutions of the Bible; difficulties exist in many minds, while, perhaps, very few of us enjoy that clear light which God hath shed upon the subject.

In the summer of 1933 in Lawton, Oklahoma, a team of six anthropologists met with eighteen Comanche elders to record the latter?s reminiscences of traditional Comanche culture. The depth and breadth of what the elderly Comanches recalled provides an inestimable source of knowledge for generations to come, both within and beyond the Comanche community. This monumental volume makes available for the first time the largest archive of traditional cultural information on Comanches ever gathered by American anthropologists. Much of the Comanches? earlier world is presented here?religious stories, historical accounts, autobiographical remembrances, cosmology, the practice of war, everyday games, birth rituals, funerals, kinship relations, the organization of camps, material culture, and relations with other tribes. Thomas W. Kavanagh tracked down all known surviving notes from the Santa Fe Laboratory field party and collated and annotated the records, learning as much as possible about the Comanche elders who spoke with the anthropologists and, when possible, attributing pieces of information to the appropriate elders. In addition, this volume includes Robert H. Lowie?s notes from his short 1912 visit to the Comanches. The result stands as a legacy for both Comanches and those interested in learning more about them.
