Swedish Morning Standard

“The world has lost one of its noblest and most remarkable men.  A great benefactor of mankind has been called home.  Our times’ greatest spiritual General has died at his honourable post.  Peace to his brave and worthy memory.”

Norkoping News

“Few of the most noted men of the day did anything like as much work as The General.  He was the leading spirit in all this world-Organisation’s least details.  He spent most of his time travelling all round the world.”

Gothenburg’s Post

“Wherever in the world men’s hearts beat for men’s sorrows and misery, the message of General Booth’s death will be received with sadness and mourning.  For with General Booth departed the greatest modern apostle of Christianity, charity, and mercy—­a sort of Saviour up to the level of modern machinery and wholesale industrial city life, and one of the most discussed and remarkable of modern personages.”

Gothenburg’s Evening

“William Booth’s life was one in storm and battle—­a great man’s life, the life of an unwearied fighter.  Now the whole world bows before the great man and the great life which will live through all time, and go on bringing help to the suffering.”

Smaland’s Post

“Booth’s blessed and energetic all-world-embracing efforts have, during the last decades, had general recognition, and his native land has in various ways testified its respect for what he has done in the service of mercy.”

Upsala News

“William Booth’s sleepless energy and restless activity succeeded in forcing his work’s recognition, even where people did not approve his methods, and many who before despised him will, now that he is gone, admit that he has done more for his fellows than many whose names have gone down to posterity.”

Malmo S. S. Daily

“It is one of the day’s strongest personages who is gone—­a man with the utmost wealth of energy and power.  One could hardly believe he belonged to our times, and yet he had all the qualities of our nervous and restless epoch.  There was much in him to remind of the old prophets—­the lonely man of God fighting with the mighty and the wrong.  Nobody can dispute that The Army did much good.”

Stockholm Morning

“It lay in the Leader’s extraordinary foresight that The Army had a great and blessed work to fulfil to save the deepest sunken in the community.”
