Nathan Straus to Take Rest Cure Abroad

Download PDF for this date

Nathan Straus sailed Friday night bound for an English seaside resort where he expects to stay for an indefinite period of time, and if his health permits will later on promote the cause of pure milk in England.

Before he sailed Mr. Straus paid a tribute to his departed wife, Lina, in which he says:

“She sympathized with and perhaps in a measure inspired my own conviction that charity is the expression of Divine love, and like Divine love can not be limited by race, creed or country. In all our works together that has been our guiding principle. Everyone knows, I think, that our pasteurized milk work was conducted for all alike.”
