“He paid a glowing tribute to Miss Farmer’s Green Acre and said how much he prized His stay amid the sacred places. He summed up briefly what the purposes were and offered congratulations because such a center had been provided it meant much . . . and would mean more in the future for more than was possible for some to appreciate at present. It was and would remain a center of all truth despite any combinations or speech to the contrary. The Lord has blessed it and blessed its founder and like the tree her work had borne fruit and would continue so to bear until all was accomplished in the spirit of love and justice.” 

— Francis Keefe
