Great Britain and America

Close Relations between the two Great Nations due to Religious Conditions, Moral Sympathy, and the Ties of Language and Blood.

The Rev. Anson Phelps Stokes, Jr., of New Haven, Conn., recently delivered a most interesting discourse on Great Britain and America, at St. Paul's P. E. Church of that city. The guests of honor on the occasion were the Sons of St. George.

Rev. Mr. Stokes' discourse was published in full in the New Haven Evening Register, of April 22, 1901, and was in part as follows:—

It is my privilege this evening to speak more particularly to the Sons of St. George. The good custom of many years is being continued, and the representatives of the two New Haven branches of this world-wide benevolent society are meeting together under the auspices of a church. It is fitting and proper that those who claim England as the home of their birth should hold to the tradition of giving to these social organizations at least once a year a distinctly religious sanction, for the history of England in the past and the life of England to-day have been profoundly influenced by the Christian religion.
