THE LATE BROTHER PRINCE. History keeps repeating herself. The theory of Henry James Prince, who claimed to be the incarna- tion of the Holy Ghost, was (says the Church Gazette) but. a re-statement, with up-to-date accompaniments, of alleged mediaeval heresies. In modern times, Ann Lee, a Lancashire blacksmith's wife, who emigrated to America, where she became the head of the Shakers, laid claim to being the Divine word. She died in 1784, but her followers hold that she is still with them in spiritual form, and presides over them, as they sing: I love to dance, and love to sing, And oh! I love my Maker I I love to dance, and love to sing, And love to be a Shaker." Another analogous instance was that of Joanna Southcott, to whom we referred on a former occasion. In her 64tli year it was revealed to her that a son should be born of her. This was to be the Messiah, a second Shiloh, who would restore peace to the world. The pooriwoman was suffering at the time from dropsy, but her believers, thinking that one more un- fulfilled prophecy was of little consequence, Co*- tinued in their unshaken devotion to her.
