Still, in order to avoid accusations of plagiarism under today's rigorous standards, he probably should have cited where he had gotten the picture from. What we want to do now is examine the evidence presented by Dirk and Numbers point by point to see if they have made a good case.

Does the evidence point to Ellen White getting her health reform material from Dr.

Jackson's writings were surprised by the marked similarities between what Mrs. White claimed to have seen in vision and the writings of Dr. Even Mrs. White acknowledged these striking similarities in a letter to her sons: We have here met with a lady who was at Our Home at Dansville when we were there. She introduced me to her husband. They attended our meetings. Your father gave a temperance discourse Sunday morning.

She sat with her husband in their carriage just outside the curtains of the tent. They are intelligent people and the first in the place. They invited us to visit them, and today we comply with their request. She made the remark in regard to your father's discourse that it seemed to her she was listening to Dr.

Jackson again. She spoke especially of my speaking at the convention, said she had never forgotten it; that it had been a great help to her since that time; that it had especially benefited her. This seems like a strange citation to prove that "Adventists who were familiar with Dr. Jackson's writings were surprised by the marked similarities," since the couple referred to were not Adventists.

"Mrs. White's Health Visions: Was it God? Or Dr. Jackson?"

But ignoring that for the moment, it seems difficult to use a June letter about a recent event to prove that Ellen White had read Jackson's books before April or August White defends herself The fact that Mrs. White's health visions so closely resembled the teachings of Dr.

Jackson raised some concern in the church. White admits that people "often" questioned her as to whether she got her "vision" from Dr. Such a controversy arose that Mrs. White was forced to publicly defend herself in the church's paper: Question on the Vision. I did not visit Dansville till August, , fourteen months after I had the view. I had not heard of the several works upon health, written by Dr. Jackson, and other publications at Dansville, at the time I had the view named above. I did not know that such works existed until September, , when in Boston, Mass. My husband ordered the works from Dansville and received them at Topsham, Maine.

His business gave him no time to peruse them, and as I determined not to read them until I had written out my views, the books remained in their wrappers. As I introduced the subject of health to friends where I labored in Michigan, New England, and in the State of New York, and spoke against drugs and flesh meats, and in favor of water, pure air, and a proper diet, the reply was often made, "You speak very nearly the opinions taught in the Laws of Life , and other publications, by Drs.

Trall, Jackson, and others. Have you read that paper and those works?

And after I had written my six articles for How to Live , I then searched the various works on hygiene and was surprised to find them so nearly in harmony with what the Lord had revealed to me. And to show this harmony, and to set before my brethren and sisters the subject as brought out by able writers, I determined to publish How to Live, in which I largely extracted from the works referred to.

Evidence of the White's involvement with Dr. Jackson The Whites did not visit Dr.

The Life of Mrs. E. G. White: Her Claims Refuted

Jackson's health institute until August of This was 14 months after Mrs. White was said to have received her June, vision on health reform. She claimed to be unfamiliar with Dr. Jackson prior to September, However, the White boys had become ill with Diphtheria in January of , and at that time, the Whites were first familiarized with the writings of Dr. Jackson: Fortunately--in the providence of God, no doubt--there had come into their hands, probably through an "exchange" of papers at the Review office, either the Yates County Chronicle , of Penn Yan, New York, or some journal quoting from it, an extended article entitled "Diphtheria, Its Causes, Treatment and Cure.

Jackson, of Dansville, New York. Early Years , Vol. Jackson's writings at least four months prior to the date of the vision. Perhaps Dirk misread what Ellen White wrote. Here again are the very words Dirk quoted from her pen:. She never claimed to have been "unfamiliar with Dr. Jackson prior to September, ," nor did she claim to have never read anything that ever came from his pen.

What she claimed to be unfamiliar with prior to September were:.

Dirk's quotation about Jackson's article on diphtheria came from Early Years. Yet that very quotation claims that the article James and Ellen White read came from the Yates County Chronicle of Penn Yan, not from a book or paper or publication from Dansville. Penn Yan is roughly 40 miles and two counties to the east northeast of Dansville.

Cleveland, Esq. Chronicle, Penn Yan, N. It was neither an article from The Laws of Life nor a chapter from one of Jackson's "works. Jackson had written or published any books, articles, or periodicals. In other words, there is nothing about Jackson's letter to the editor that indicates that Ellen White knew anything about the three things she denied knowing about until September It appears that Dirk misread Ellen White again. She stated that she was unfamiliar with Jackson's books, but she never said what her husband James did or did not know. If James was like most husbands, he did a lot of things without telling his wife. So whether he sent off for some of Jackson's books in June or not is essentially irrelevant to the question of what Ellen White did or did not know.

Additionally, as Ronald Numbers, the source of Dirk's wording at this point see second comparison at the top , makes crystal clear, James stated emphatically that he didn't know "the name of a single publication offered for sale at" Dansville. If around June of he didn't know any of their titles, then there really is nothing here that proves that Ellen White knew any of the titles either prior to September They then proceeded to Boston where James was to work on the design of some charts on prophecy and the 10 Commandments.

Whether James received Dr. Jackson's August 13 letter before he left Battle Creek on the 19th, or whether it was forwarded to him at Topsham where he would have read it during the last half of September, Dirk does not say. But if Jackson's letter did not get to Battle Creek before the Whites left, then James would not likely have been able to read it before seeing Himes' paper in Boston in September.

When the books arrived Mrs. In this case, Dirk has misread both Ellen White and Numbers, the source he plagiarized from. Secondly, Numbers could not have been clearer in his note 20 that James was not in Battle Creek and thus was not the one responsible for printing that article on hoops in the October 27 issue of the Review. The question Numbers raises instead is whether or not Ellen White knew of that article.

But even if she did know that Jackson's article had appeared in the October 27, , issue of the Review , we don't think that would prove that she knew about The Laws of Life prior to September The most damaging point we can see is that James sent Jackson's book Consumption to Ira Abbey when the books were supposedly still in their wrappers. But come to think of it, people today ship books still in their wrappers all the time.

Wrappers today tend to be plastic shrink wrap, and the book titles shine right through, permitting anyone to send the correct book without taking off the wrapper. If the wrappers in James' day were paper, and if they had external markings that identified which book was within, then James could have easily sent off the book specified without ever taking it out of its wrapper.

In fact, sending it still in its wrapper would likely allow it to arrive in better shape. Since Ellen White said that the books remained in their "wrappers," plural, it does sounds like each book was individually wrapped. Later, such a close relationship developed that Mrs. White could write that she was warmly received as a guest when she visited Dr. Jackson's home: The same day I saw Dr.

Jackson at his home and he kindly granted me an interview. Advent Review and Sabbath Herald , February 27, I stated the case to him, and told him I had thoughts of taking my husband home. James was a patient at Jackson's facility from September through December 6, , while recovering from a stroke. It can genuinely be identified as her book so far as its ideas and structure is concerned. The summary in part reads,. However, Willie White makes it plain that although appropriate credit to other authors was not given when it obviously should have been Ellen White did not engage in any deliberate act of deception.

Willie writes,. And in her handwritten manuscripts, most of the passages that she had copied word for word were enclosed in quotation marks. But there were also many passages that were paraphrased…. The question arose, how shall these passages be handled? Much time would be required to study each passage and mark it consistently.

The printers were waiting for copy, and the public were waiting for the book. Then it was decided to leave out the quotation marks entirely. And in that way the book was printed.
