THE MAIL

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

To the Editor of the Crimson:

I am enclosing an open letter which was sent yesterday morning to Bishop Lawrence and to the Boston Transcript. You are at liberty to publish it if you wish. Elizabeth A. Cobb.   (Mrs. Stanley Cobb).

My dear Bishop Lawrence:

Your address before the Convention of the Episcopal Diocese was unsatisfactorily quoted in the Transcript. The reader cannot be clear what your meaning was. The first impression is that you were endeavoring to whip up public opinion in this country to lend an active hand to England in her fight. The Harvard Crimson in an editorial today has evidently so interpreted your words. More careful reading and more especially my esteem for you make me question the validity of this interpretation. Surely the Church does not wish to send our young men out to kill? That they should risk their lives in a great cause is one thing; to send them out to kill is quite another. We look to leaders in the Church for guidance. Is anything but a truly pacifist attitude compatible with Christian love?

I hope that you will make your position more clear.
