Knights' Review was an American fraternal magazine, published monthly by the Supreme Senate of the Knights of the Ancient Essenic Order at Cincinnati, Ohio, which was dedicated to the interests of the order. Originally, it was published by Charles J. Weatherby himself at Salt Lake City in 1892;[3] it would later be re-established by Supreme Senator George Henry Simmons in February 1895,[4] with the editorial mantle passing soon thereafter to Robert Emmet Slater (1896-1906), and later Henry Pounds Karch (from 1906).

  4. Slater, R. E., ed. (1896), Knights' Review, 1,, retrieved 2016-08-04, "The Knights' review was first published in Salt Lake City, Utah, in 1892, by General C.J. Weatherby, its founder, but ... the file copies were unfortunately destroyed. The next publication of the Review was commenced in Louisville, Ky., Feb. 1895, under the editorship and management of Rev. George H. Simmons ... who was compelled, by the press of private business, to discontinue his connection with the Review in September, of the same year, and its management and publication again devolved upon General C.J. Weatherby, who issued the October, November, and December numbers which form [no. 6] of this edition of volume 1."
