President McKinley's religious views have been concisely . . .

President McKinley's religious views have been concisely and aptly expressed in the few introductory words he wrote for the book, "Tarry Thou Till I Come." The publishers of this work asked President McKinley for a few fitting words to go with General Lew Wallace's introduction, and on September 15, 1900, the President wrote:

"The religion which Christ founded has been a mighty influence in the civilization of the human race. If we of to-day owed to it nothing more than this, our debt of appreciation would be incalculable. The doctrine of love, purity, and right living has step by step won its way into the heart of mankind, has exalted home and family, and has filled the future with hope and promise."—William McKinley.
