(1778-1866) US clergyman and author whose Future History, Memoir of the Northern Kingdom, Written, A D 1872 [for full title see Checklist below] (dated 1901 but 1808), describes the world as of the date of its claimed composition. Politics dominates the account. America has been split into three parts: the Southern States, now a monarchy under the influence of France; the Northern States, at peace with Canada due to the marriage of the King of Canada to the daughter of the American president; and the Republican Middle States. Monarchy is seen to be the best form of government to bring all three dissident regions into one union. [JC]
