Excerpt from Light in Darkness: Being an Account of the Salvation Army in the United States

Barriers that have heretofore seemed impervious to the advance alike of Science, of Philosophy and Statesmanship fortresses of Vice and Crime, of Poverty and Despair, against which the combined forces of Christendom have wagedan almost hopeless war - have yielded before the assaults of the host of men and women warriors, who have sprung to their feet at the bidding of this Prophet of the Poor to take part in this glorious Crusade Amid the Egyptian darkness of thralldom and poverty which envelopes the Working Classes of the world, there has ?ashed the figure of a God inspired deliverer of one who has not been ashamed to proclaim from every housetop his profound allegiance to the Bleeding Lamb and his supreme confidence in the Gospel remedy for sin - and yet of one who has not ignored but ably bound up many of the gaping wounds of society, pouring in the oil and wine alike of human help and divine consolation.

Visit the Zulu kraal, the Red Indian tepee, or the Hindoo mud hut, and you will see hanging upon the smoke-grimed wall the picture of this Poor Man's Friend. In Japan, India, Java, Hawaii, the children learn to lisp his name. National antipathies are forgotten and the capitals of Europe vie with each other in doing honor to one whose mission is a war of love, of desperate eifort to bridge the gulf between nation and nation, between rich and poor.
