From an Anglican sermon (1873)
The above proclamation by the Rev. Algernon Godfrey Kingsford, vicar of Altcham, nr Shrewsbury; was actually written by his wife, Anna (1846-1888) who later became a Catholic with strong links to theosophy. She trained in Paris to become a medical doctor and eventually campaign against vivisection and discrimination against women in Victorian society.
The passage was discovered by Samuel Hopgood Hart and published in The Vegetarian News (March 1929).
