  • 1861 - Born

  • 1900 - Address, as a dinner in his honour:
    "I attended the first meeting in Liverpool addressed by Henry George, held under the auspcies of the Financial Reform Association. Many people have been driven to study the land question through suffering hardship, incidental to our present system of land tenure. It was not so with me. So far, I have no personal tale of woe to record, nor has my family. I was attracted both by the moral and the economic bearings of the question on industry and social life. I applied the arguments used to my ownnative town. The more I investigated the matter the more proof I found in the soundness, and the justice, of taxing land values. ...Pass this measure into law and see how it will work. It will increase the marketplace quantity of land, and this can have but one result -- land will be cheaper: It will break down the monopoly and give free play to the natural progressive character of our British trade and commerce."

You will find them full of hope and full of warning. . . . Henry George as others before and since his day saw a great truth, not a mere individual or national one, but a truth which covers all life.
