"Christianity has sent out many missionaries and teachers to convert men, but a hundred times as many have gone out to destroy men." A pacifist address: Hall points up the inconsistency of professing Christianity yet pursuing war (with examples); he suggests working to reform governments (including an international arbitration board) to avoid war. General Winfield Scott is cited with some favor. This copy with the ownership signature of the influential Unitarian Rev. Ezra S. Gannett at the head of the front wrapper.
