Excerpt from Swords and Ploughshares or the Supplanting of the System of War
Having been for many years in touch with the leading peace workers of America and an assiduous reader of the voluminous supply of pamphlets, books, and articles, which have flooded your country with the discussion of the great subject of the supplanting of the war system of nations by justice and reason, I have concluded that America is far in the forefront in the propaganda of the peace ideal, as in definite plans to bring it into realisation. Its adherents, representing as they do the highest and most influential circles of state, as well as the ablest scholars and religious leaders, have prominently pushed the subject internationally. In literature, in politics, in science, the most prominent men and women of America stand for the world's peace. Prom out of your beneficent private purses generous provisions have been poured for peace foundations.
