And they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks; nation shall not lift up a sword against nation,  neither shall they learn war any more.

                                      MICAH IV. 3.

Your Majesties, George, William and Nicholas:

ANDREW CARNEGIE'S great gift to aid in establishing World Peace --the beautiful temple at the Hague -- fills me with hope that I may yet live to see the noontide of the day of Universal Peace, the dawn of which is now breaking, and I offer these thoughts, hoping that they may hasten that hour.

     I address them to you three great War Lords, serving the Prince of Peace, because I know that if even one of them could see the matter as I do, wonderful good would result, and if all of you would come out for national disarmament, there would be no more war.

     I take you to be Christians, as you profess.

     If you could understand your Master's teachings and see how the world would be lifted up by the establishment of the Brotherhood of Man, you would strive for Universal Peace with all your zeal and power.

     If you three Sovereigns act in concert, there will be no appeal from your decree and Micah's prophecy will come true.
