The last five years have been clouded by the terrible war

A pacifist clergyman who had ended up supporting the war now looked to a new start.

My dear friends…

On October 20th I begin, if I am spared, my eighth year of ministry. The last five years have been clouded by the terrible war, and much that I had hoped to do has had to be left, until a more convenient season. Now that the war is over, I feel that the time has come for a great forward movement…

Yours very sincerely
W Morton Rawlinson
