Kerfoot, Sam'l H.:

BISHOP WHITEHOUSE AND THE DIOCESE OF ILLINOIS. BY...OF CHICAGO.

Thompson & Day, Chicago: 1860 Original printed wrappers [old institutional stamp], stitched. 55, [1] pp. Light wear, Very Good. "The Bishop has been here upwards of a month, and yet no demonstration has been made on his part of a desire for reconciliation with his Clergy here, and that there has been an estrangement, no one, of course, pretends to deny." Kerfoot places the problem at the Bishop's door. "The nature of the man"-- his "tendency to close framing of bargains and contracts," "at all times leaning towards the accumulation of money"-- is behind the estrangement. Respecting the office of Bishop, Kerfoot nevertheless "cannot approve of wrong plans or devices, even when conceived by a brain covered by a mitre." Kerfoot lays out his detailed indictment against Whitehouse. FIRST EDITION. Ante-Fire Imprints 492.
