Kenneth Morse was born in Cleveland, OH, on 4th Month Seventh 1898 -- died 11th Month First 1982 in Baltimore, MD. He was convinced while sitting on a porch swing about the year 1914, when he heard a voice that said, "All war is wrong." Later in his academic career while at Harvard, he attended the Gurneyite Meeting at Cambridge. One First Day it was announced at meeting that two ministers from the "smaller body" would be in attendance at the afternoon meeting. These men were Cyrus Cooper and his companion, James Henderson. He remarked that he had never heard preaching after the Spirit before that time. He used to say that our duty as Friends was to turn people to the voice or light within them that is Christ. (As related to me by Friend Patrick J. Burns.)

Some of his Testimonies to the Truth With grateful acknowledgement to Friend Patrick J. Burns for sending me these Testimonies.

Epistle 68
1654

"Thresh down Deceit"

FRIENDS, know the Life and Power of God in your selves, and one another, and to that Power be Obedient, to Thresh down all Deceit within and without you in Wisdom, and in that dwell, which comprehends the World; and know the Rest, which is for the People of God, which he that believeth, hath entred into.

So know the Life, that stands in God; and all know the Power of God, for that Power shall never be shaken nor change, but will shake down all, that must be shaken and will change.
