The Saurs, father and son, prob ably contributed more to the Spiritual and intellectual upbuilding of the Ger mans than any other two men in America. The history of their unsel fish labors is most entertaining read ing. The elder, invented port able or six-plate box stoves, even be fore Franklin's iron fireplaces were made, He also made tall, eight-day, grandfather clocks. But, although he was a typemaker, paper and ink make-r, printer, book-binder, stove maker, clockmaker and voluminous writer, yet it can be said that none of these was his profession, but phar macy, or medicine. Christopher Saur, the son, educated at Christopher Dock's famous Mennonite school, he came bishop of the Dunkard Church in 1753. 'in 1752 the son, in addition to his clerical duties, took active part in the printing business, and preparation of medicines. In 1758 his father was. Summoned to a court-martial by General Forbes, for attempting to de nounce the expedition to Fort Du quesne. The old man promptly met the General at an inn, The Stag, on Lancaster street, Philadelphia, and in three minutes proved to him that he was not an enemy of the King, be cause war was an enemy of the Sa viour. In the same year Saur, the elder, died (in and Bishop Saur and his son, the third Christopher, represented the family. For refusing to take the oath to the American cause, during the Revolution, when their religion taught swear not at all, Bishop Saur and his son, sus~ pected by the Continental army of be ing spies, had all their printing and publishing establishment, private houses, paper mill confiscated, and the old Bishop was left a penniless man. It was only through the inter vention of General Muhlenberg that his life was spared. His own pathet lo account of this injustice and per secution can be found in his own handwriting in a manuscript in the possession of Mrs. Mary Knauer, daughter of Samuel Saur, of Charles town, Chester county, Pennsylvania. It has recently been published in a pamphlet containin'r the address made at the presentation of a tablet in memory of Christopher Saur, father and son, to the Church of the Breth ren in Germantown, January 1, 1889.
