J., Dec. 3. 1771; accepted the Quaker faith early in life, and later adhered to the doctrines promulgated by Elias Hicks, whose followers became known as Hicksites. As a member of the Pennsylvania Abolition Society he often protected the negro people of Philadelphia from the slave kidnappers who infested that city.

A year before, Mr. McKim, in writing to Mr. Garrison Ms. Oct. 25, 1851. on another topic, asked if the rumor were true that he believed in the spiritual origin of the so-called Rochester knockings. The first public revelation of his views on this subject—views which, if they did not tend to prove his infidelity, at least did not improve his orthodox standing—was made in the Liberator of May 7, 1852, in an editorial notice of the Rev. Charles Hammond's Light from the Spirit World [via Thomas Paine] : Many similar notices are to be found in Vol. 22 of the Liberator, and the selections and communications relating to Spiritualism are allotted considerable space in the same volume. What are called Spiritual manifestations have been Lib. 22.74. exciting a great deal of interest and discussion, for the last two or three years, in various sections of this country. The opinions f

ood that he wished me to convey in it a message to the Society of Friends; including the Orthodox branch, with whom he had been brought into painful collision, in years gone by. After several hours of restlessness and suffering, he fell into a tranquil slumber, which lasted a long time. The serene expression of his countenance remained unchanged, and there was no motion of limb or muscle, when the spirit passed away. This was between eight and nine o'clock in the evening, on the seventh of May, 1852.
