(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

A call for a world congress of religion during the Sesquicentennial International Exposition in Philadelphia next summer was issued by Mayor Kendrick.

Invitations are soon to be issued to heads of all religious bodies urging their participation.

“Religious freedom,” said the Mayor, “was one of the fundamental principles announced by the signers of the Declaration of Independence, and no celebration of that event would be complete without an appropriate recognition of this fundamental basis of human liberty.”
