From an Anglican sermon (1873)

The above proclamation by the Rev. Algernon Godfrey Kingsford, vicar of Altcham, nr Shrewsbury; was actually written by his wife, Anna (1846-1888) who later became a Catholic with strong links to theosophy. She trained in Paris to become a medical doctor and eventually campaign against vivisection and discrimination against women in Victorian society.

The passage was discovered by Samuel Hopgood Hart and published in The Vegetarian News (March 1929).

Quotation:'Something Lacking' (1931)

"It must always be a most serious matter for the Christian Church, should its ethic at any time prove to be less advanced than that of the secular community, or indeed of any section of it."
