Letter to The Labour Leader (S531c: 1897)

Editor Charles H. Smith's Note: Excerpt from a letter (probably to Keir Hardie) printed on page 13 of the 9 January 1897 issue of The Labour Leader; part of a short feature headed 'Much Popular Enthusiasm Greeted the Opening of the Wm. Morris Labour Church at Leek.' To link directly to this page, connect with: http://people.wku.edu/charles.smith/wallace/S531C.htm

    ...Dr. Russell Wallace wrote saying a most admirable and suggestive name had been chosen for the organisation--"a name that will recall to yourselves and your children how a great man, a sweet singer, an enthusiastic worker, strove with all his might to convince this materialistic age, whose only real god is mammon, that there was a better way than that which they were following."
