Announcing that Jemima had died and that her body now housed a new spirit, the Publick Universal Friend, this remarkably charismatic and notably scandal-plagued woman gathered several hundred followers and settled to the west of Seneca Lake. Although the religious community she founded on a framework of abstinence and friendship did not long survive her, Wilkinson remains a figure of fascination and mystery to this day. Herbert A. Wisbey Jr.s 1964 biography is the authoritative account of her life, times, and ideals.
