This is a fascinating and important pamphlet about early Quaker conflict over leadership, and its resolution in the creation of the system of business meetings, which established leadership in the united meeting, as led by the Spirit. The author reviews the specific history and concludes that George Fox alone is the founder, not of Quakerism as a spiritual movement, but of the group structure through which that movement was able to survive.
