The Maintenance of Light
From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia
The Maintenance of "Light"
Sir, — I beg to subscribe my annual donation of £10 to LIGHT. Should there be a deficit I should always be ready to join with others in defraying it. Riches are no doubt enervating either for an individual or for a cause, but you are in a position, I consider, not to beg for but to demand a sufficiency, in the spirit in which St. Paul demanded the needful money for himself and his propaganda from the early Churches. You represent the most living religious cause now existing upon earth, the only conclusive answer against materialism, and to let your work languish for want of funds is unthinkable.
