Description

Benedict explains his preference for smaller schools and the drawbacks of high school and college; his work in printing; his objection to secret societies and clubs; and his preference for simple furniture. He also discusses Old German Baptist Brethren discouragement of photographs, using items for general usage within the group, and denominational splits. Benedict also describes disagreements and contentiousness within the church, the benefits of church fellowship, care for older members of the church, the outlawing of suing and divorcing, and the fact that women may start singing songs only if no men are present. The tape contains loud background noises.
