In Darkest England and the Way Out, by William Booth

William Booth

On this day in history,

in 1890, “In Darkest England and the Way Out”, a classic work of social programming by Salvation Army Founder, William Booth, was first published.

This controversial book presented Booth‘s plans for a program to help the poor and needy. His ideas were summarized in what he termed ‘The Cab-Horse Charter’ which read,

“When a horse is down he is helped up, and while he lives he has food, shelter and work. That, although a humble standard, is at present absolutely unattainable by millions – literally by millions – of our fellow men and women.”
