Excerpt from The Voice of Jerusalem The title of this book was struck out in a letter that appeared in the London Times within a few months of the outbreak of the Great War, and though I know how little the great Jew who has just passed away would have agreed with many of its pages, I am glad to have his honoured name thus bound up with the book whose title he unwittingly inspired. Sir, - The interview with Mr. Jacob Schiff reported by your Washington correspondent - the proposal for a permanent peace that shall end not only this war, but war - comes as the one gleam of light in the world's darkness. But why almost extinguish it under the head of "German Press Campaign"? And why does he speak of Mr. Schiff's "brief for Germany"? As one associated for many years in philanthropic work with this noblest of millionaires I should like to testify that, despite his early associations with Germany, he is one of the most patriotic Americans I have ever known. Descended from a long line of Jewish Rabbis and scholars - one of his ancestors was Chief Rabbi of the Great Synagogue, London, in the 18th century - Mr. Jacob Schiff might himself have sat to Lessing for the portrait of "Nathan der Weise," and in proposing a conference to end Prussian militarism - and every other - he speaks not as the mouthpiece of Berlin, but with the voice of Jerusalem.
