"Number One in a series of Tarry-at-Home Travels". Very good .
A pro-segregation book. At the 1906 session of the Council of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the diocese of Arkansas, it was resolved "that the plan of the Bishop of the Diocese looking to the creation of an autonomous Afro-American Church, be and hereby is approved." The Bishop believed that religion was the only realm in which African Americans could achieve the self-government which, he writes, is essential to solving the race question. He sets out to answer the criticisms of his plan from various quarters and also specifies where the "color line" should be drawn in all areas of American life.
The publisher's lengthy ad is for the Bishop's previous book "The Church for Americans". Fair .

The author of this biography, Elias Ahira Calkins [1828-1904], was a newspaper editor and publisher and a veteran of the Civil War who was mustered out with the rank of lieutenant colonel. Calkins began his career in Milwaukee and Madison, Wisconsin, becoming an editorial writer and newspaper publisher. When the war broke out he organized the Third Wisconsin cavalry and saw service in Missouri and Arkansas. He won praise for his conduct at Prairie Grove, Ark. and Rocky Bluff, Mo. in 1862. After the war he resumed his career as an editorial writer and newspaper editor and publisher, first in Wisconsin and later in Chicago. A lifelong Democrat, Calkins was described in his Chicago Chronicle obituary as "a valiant soldier and a leading citizen..a pioneer journalist and a brilliant, farseeing political economist."
