THOUGHTS, DOINGS, AND SAYINGS OF THE RACE. 17
red and black races of those who hold that there are five distinct
races of man. But how about the white race? It seems to have
been left entirely out of the enumeration. There can be but one con¬
clusion regarding it. If Adam was of a reddish color—as I think I
have clearly shown him to have been—and Eve was of a color which
was neither yellow, red, brown nor black, and as some of their pos¬
terity are a complexion different from either of these just named,
and that complexion is the only one that she could possess, if we
agree with Blumenbaek that there are but five races of men distin-
guished by their color, then we must conclude that Eve, the first
woman, was white. The arg-ument upon which this conclusion is
founded is both scriptural and scientific, and from this basis, and
none other, it proposes to declare a hitherto hidden truth. Having
established the color of the first man by a draft on Scripture narra¬
tive, etymology and mental philosophy, I shall, in another chapter,
establish the color of the first woman by the same means, perhaps
using- the argument of two or three affinitive sciences in addition
thereto.—The Unity of the Human Race.

ET us first consider Gen. ii. 21-23, wherein Moses, Israel's great

of the creation of woman and the beginning of the world.
"And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he
slept; and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead
thereof. And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from the man,
made he a woman and brought her unto the man. And the man said.
this is now bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh ; she shall be called
woman, because she was taken out of man.''
I attach more importance to the fact that woman was made out of
man's rib than others do, yet no more than the fact deserves. If
Adam was made out of red clay, which made his color red, it is un¬
reasonable to believe that as Eve was made out a white rib she there-
