[FT] Christ has come to teach his people

I have found a curious (and potentially disturbing) problem in Lewis
Benson¹s oft-quoted and seminal work Catholic Quakerism, p. 27, specifically
footnote 8 (p. 100), which cites Fox¹s Journal, p. 135, for the source of
Fox¹s statement, ³Christ has come to teach his people himself.²  The problem
is that the quotation appears no where on that page.

That leads me to propound two queries:  1) where does it appear in Fox¹s
writings?  2) would anyone, particularly any Bensonites among us, care to
speculate on how Benson, who is noted for his Christocentric Quakerism based
on that quotation, could have made such an egregious and inaccurate
citation?

For what it¹s worth.
