'No Christian sympathy with the Hindus who sat on the platform of the Federation in London.' The International Conference of the Federation was held in London 15-17 Jul 1898.
The German opinions of this Conference and their general views on State and religion were expressed in a paper which had been translated for the Society by Miss Goff. JB has read it all with 'pity and some amusement'. Her final opinion of the German (male): 'The German standpoint, in religious as well as other matters, has always been distasteful to me. It is a male standpoint ... ' (Compare her views as expressed in a letter to the Priestman sisters 3 May 
'The German men are very insolent - unconsciously so perhaps they regard me as an inconvenient and unmanageable intruder into the Federation, an old woman who sets her opinion against the whole of German Male Wisdom.'
This was the monthly paper of the Social Purity Alliance founded in 1873.
Notice in the 'Shield' Jan 1909 p.56. The SPA also supplies literature and arranges for lectures to Bible classes, Young Men's Societies, etc. The Committee of the Alliance are pledged to the Abolition of State Regulation of Vice.
