Autograph Letter Signed ('C. Cohen') to Walters.

Author: 
Chapman Cohen (1868-1954), Editor of 'The Freethinker' [John Cuming Walters (1863-1933), Editor, Manchester City News]
Publication details: 
2 May 1919; on letterhead of 'The Freethinker'.
£75.00

4to, 2 pp. Good, on lightly-aged and worn paper. Thirty-seven lines of text. He finds himself 'very much in accord' with the views expressed by Walters in his address on 'The New Religion'. His 'chief difference' is 'a dislike to the use of the word "Religion." It has, to me, associations that are certain to rob it of all good.' As a 'working term', in Cohen's view, it lacks 'satisfactory power'. 'However, the great thing seems to me to keep churches & individuals on the move.
