[226] Fray Tomas, where Fray Tomas fell behind such chiefs as Red Cloud. A Christian friar is chastened in his exercise of power by the remembrance of his vows and by the habits and restraints of civilized life. An Indian seer admits no check on his authority, and a Mormon pontiff admits no check on his authority; yet, like the Franciscan prior, an Indian seer and Mormon pontiff find a limit even to “ divine” commission.
