The letter is typedscript with handwritten corrections and is incomplete. The letter refrs to Whitechapel, saying that whilst material recognition has been absent to a degree ["rude and foolish"] Whitechapel is never far from us. George then discusses the evolution of understanding of himself and family whilst working their land [in America]. George then refers to a letter from Miss Sargent [possibly John Singer Sargent's daughter, at least one of who was involved in social work] that he started to answer before the [World War One started in June 1914] war but comments it is difficult to discuss things with "folks engaged in the hard job of kicking against the pricks" [warmongers?]. He then discusses Miss Sargent's heroworship in the letter and efforts to bring Gods kingdom to earth verses benevolent despotism. George then discusses a letter from the churchwarden [Miss Hughes has added in red ink B.C.W.]. Throughout he makes comments about land tax. Only digitised version can be produced.
