Excerpt from The Literature of the Peace Movement The Bishop of Hereford, who came to the United States in 1904 to attend the International Peace Congress in Boston, has been emphasizing in England, in addresses since that time, the importance of the contributions of the United States to the peace movement. He has said that the United States itself is, in his judgment, the greatest and most in uential peace society in the world, because it illustrates over a broader area and with greater power than is anywhere else the case the beneficent Operation of the three great principles of interstate free trade, an interstate court, and federation, which are all that is necessary to extend to international affairs to give us precisely the kind of organized world that we want. He has also been telling his English breth ren that he counts it a capital misfortune that they are t more familiar than most of them are with the writings of Sumner and Charming and the other great leaders of the peace movement in the United States during the last century. We in America kw too well that this unfortunate unfamiliarity is t confined to Englishmen. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
