Description Asticou, Maine, August 14, 1909. Dear Madam: I am obliged to you for the copy of the "Discipline of the New York Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends", which you have been good enough to send me. I agree with you that the principles of the Society of Friends are a much closer approximation to the teachings of Jesus than the creeds and practices of most of the Christian denominations, and I think, too, that the religion of the Friends resembles closely what I believe will be the religion of the future. The Friends, however, seem to me to have some practices and observances which are likely to keep the denomination small. Sincerely yours, Charles W. Eliot Mrs. William M. Jackson.
