Mother of Mystics

New Haven Register,
New Haven Connecticut, February 22, 1882. 

...That [the Cowbellions] comprehend the genius of their people and cater to their love for rich color and poetic spectacle, by the marvelous fact of a respect and love that, in all these long years, has never produced one harsh nor one lewd word; and beyond this we only know they are The Mystics.
