My dear Sir,
I am in receipt of your signature declaring yourself a member oft he World-Conscience Society, and I am very happy indeed to receive this mark of your symathy.
At the present moment the spread of the idea of a World-Centre and the creation of sympathy towards it will greatly help to forward ist realization, but I would not presume to ask you to take an active part in this propaganda as I realize fully the unusual demands upon your time and strength. Your name alone upon our membership list will be of great and special value.
With apprediation for your long and noble service to humanity and with sincerest esteem, I remain
