Two of the focuses at Matrika Press are to preserve texts and thoughts of our ancestors, and to create publications that share the values and principles of Unitarian Universalism. This allegorical story by David Starr Jordan is a tale about the search for spiritual meaning. Symbolic of Jesus Christ's ministry, it succinctly embodies the UU Christian heritage and the fourth of the six sources they draw their faith from, namely that which calls one to respond to God's love by loving our neighbors as ourselves.

This manuscript was initially printed under the title of "The Story of the Innumerable Company" by Messrs. Whitaker & Ray, of San Francisco. Later, with edits by the author, published in 1904 by the The University Press, Cambridge, U.S.A.

David Starr Jordan was the first President of Stanford University, and also the President of Indiana University. He was a pacifist and ichthyologist.

While he never officially became either a Unitarian or Universalist, he held liberal religious beliefs, and was said to be a regular philosophical spokesperson of the American Unitarian Association.

He reputedly chose Starr for his middle name because of his love for astronomy and to honor his mother's respect for the Unitarian minister, Thomas Starr King.

As the story goes, his parents had been Baptists when they first married, but turned away from that religion "because of their doubts as to 'eternal damnation.'" They became Universalists and thus raised David without religious orthodoxy and rather within the framework of a living tradition that would evolve into Unitarian Universalism.

David Starr Jordan's manuscript has been edited and arranged by "Twinkle" Marie Manning and it is "with humble privilege we resurrect this piece of our literary history."
