"General William Booth Enters Heaven" by Vachel Lindsey (poetry reading)
January 15, 2010
General William Booth was the founder of The Salvation Army, which has uplifted more downtrodden and lost souls that the whole of the psychiatric profession put together - and all for no material reward.
There are rough pubs in the East End of London where strong men would never dare to set foot but where Salvation Army lasses in their uniforms collecting for the homeless are treated with dignity and respect.
The photograph of Vachel Lindsey was taken in 1,913
