So I guess those are the j causes." j "The nreach.or in his sermon at the, church," he continued, "told them to be good to strangers, but no one spoke to me and I resented it." Rev. Dr. Karl Reiland, rector of SL George's, in part of his sermon had urged the wealthy congregation to be lriond strangers and show Christian courtesy.
