Autograph Letter Signed, about the reading of the Bible in the Birmingham Board Schools

by DALE, Robert William

Condition: See description

Birmingham, 18 November 1882. 4 pp. 7 x 4 inches, in good condition, remains of guard, with a separate carte-de-visite portrait of Dale. Robert William Dale (1829-1895), Congregationalist leader. Dale welcomed social improvement and was an advocate, with George Dawson of what became known in Birmingham as the 'civic gospel'. The health, housing, sanitation and living conditions in Birmingham had suffered from its rapid population expansion in the previous thirty years. Dale argued 'the public duty of the state is the private duty of every citizen': service on the town council to improve the wellbeing of Birmingham was advocated by Dale as having moral and religious worth.
