Manuscript Document, four pages, 6-1/4” x 7-7/8”. No place. No date. In part, “A cronological [sic] table, by John Watkins at the request of his Sister Dunkin showing the few persons competent to transmit by tradition from Adam to Moses, the account the latter has given of the creation, the Antedeluvian world, the flood and subsequent events ... These five persons were competent to hand down to Moses by tradition, the account he has given, of the creation, the history of the antedeluvian world, the account of the flood, and of the transactions subsequent thereto to his time ... The life of man being protracted in those ages to the great length we find them recorded, clearly proves the practibility of the correctness of Moses’ history, by tradition, if there were no written monuments of them, to assist him; a thing of which there is no evidence, but solely founded on presumption, which is stronger on the other side, as the Egyptians are said to have been in his day a learned people, and Moses himself know how to write.” The individuals listed are, Adam, Metheuselah, Noah, Shem, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Levi, Kohath and Amram.
