Good Info on Ellen White and Oysters

Dear Reader, I just received the following note from a knowledgeable friend in Arizona:


Just for your information: The 11th chapter of Leveticus was not used as the standard of what meats we could and could not eat until into the 20th century, a'la Stephen Haskell. Pork was to be avoided, but oysters as yet were not on the list. When Fannie Bolten years later expresed her surprise at Ellen eating oysters, it was because she had taken the new practice and impressed it upon a historical event making that event subject to it. Fannie, of course was wrong to do so.As a side note, the very pastor which Fannie says was with her has testified that this event did not happen. Fannie died in around 1926 in an insaine asylum.
