We are strongly of opinion that the Parent Body and its Branches at home and abroad should invite subscriptions from Christian friends, as we feel convinced that nothing could tend so much to put an end to systematic cruelty and persecution than if it were shown to those who practise it that Jew and Christian go hand in hand, at least in England and the British Colonies, in sucb a good cause as that of endeavouring to prevent all persecution.
We cannot conclude this Report without expressing our sincere regret at the resignation of our respected President, Mr. Leopold Zossenheim, more especially as it is caused by his recent severe bereavement.
