CALCUTTA CHRISTIAN OBSERVER.
I.-The Karens of Burmah a remnant of the Ten Tribes of
To the Editors of the Calcutta Christian Observer. GENTLEMEN,
The discovery of the lost tribes of Israel, and their conversion to Christianity, are in view of prophecy events of such paramount importance, that no apology will be deemed necessary for laying the present communication before your readers, believing, as the writer confidently does, that a part of these lost tribes are found in the Karens of Burmah and Siam.
The Karens are possessed of oral traditions on religious subjects to an extent unparalleled in the history of uncivilized nations. Some of these traditions are in prose, in the form of sayings or commands from a father to his children, and have been handed down to posterity, much in the manner that unwritten proverbs are, more or less of which exist among all nations ; others, in verse, possessed of all the peculiar characteristics of Hebrew poetry, and have been perpetuated by being sung at the graves of their old men. The latter are the national songs of the people, and are sung in slow mournful tunes, much resembling European music in the minor
The writer on first starting the idea, that the Karens were the lost Israelites, a gentleman of his acquaintance observed at cnce, “They have got a Jewish look," à fact which cannot fail to strike
any one, The nations around all pluck out the beard, and many of the Karens conform to them in this respect, yet great numbers suffer it to grow, which is their proper national custom, for the Karen father says to his children, “O children and grandchildren! a man without a beard is of a race of women, but a man with a beard belongs to the race of ancient kings.”
It were impossible for the aborigines of this country to suppose that ancient kings wore beards, but it comes naturally enough from an Israelite.
