1889 Israelite and Indian: a parallel in planes of culture
Quote "Many authors have contended that North American Indians were descendants of the "ten lost tribes of Israel."
"The authors of the school mentioned have for their excuse the fact, which I freely admit with greater emphasis, that an astounding number of customs of the North American Indians are the same as those recorded of the ancient Hebrews; but the lesson to be derived from the parallel between the Indians and the Israelites is very different from that of the descent advocated."
