"William Booth started life as a pawnbroker's assistant in Nottingham. After coming to London in 1849 he became an itinerant revivalist preacher... In 1878 he founded almost by accident the Salvation Army. His passionate preoccupation with the submerged tenth was not confined to their spiritual welfare; he was determined to relieve their physical misery as well.

In 1890, the same year that Stanley published In Darkest Africa, Booth published In Darkest England. In this book, he analyzed the causes of pauperism and vice of the period, and proposed a remedy by ten expedients.

These included land settlement, emigration, rescue work among prostitutes and at the prison-gate, the poor man's bank, and the poor man's lawyer. Money was liberally subscribed and a large part of the scheme was carried through." [PMM, 373]

"Presented to Charles Frederick Cartwright by Major Hillary for Self Denial Effort, March 21st, 98."
