MR No. 301—Miscellaneous Manuscript Items

I have a great interest in all the schools started by our people. The light that has been given me is that in no case should there be brought into these schools things which, though apparently innocent and harmless, will pervert the senses, and confuse the power of distinguishing between right and wrong. When the drapery that clothes these apparently good efforts is withdrawn, there appears a new work of the enemy's weaving. Thus he would bring in the subtle arguments which he has used in all the churches and more or less in our institutions.—Letter 84, 1900, p. 1. (To Sister Morse, June 7, 1900.) 5MR 173.1

We women must remember that God has placed us subject to the husband. He is the head and our judgment and views and reasonings must agree with his if possible. If not, the preference in God's Word is given to the husband where it is not a matter of conscience. We must yield to the head.—Letter 5, 1861, p. 2. (To Mrs. J. N. Loughborough, June 6, 1861.) 5MR 173.2
