A Study in Clerical Poverty
F. J. HAMMOND
Vicar of All Hallows, Hoo, Kent
Author of "The Country Parson," etc.
32 GEORGE STREET, HANOVER
SQUARE, LONDON, W. 1921
Chapter I. As It Should Be and As It Is
Chapter II. The Parson and Poverty
Chapter III. The Parson's Tithe
Chapter IV. The Parson's House
Chapter V. Religion and Money
Chapter VI. The Views of a Layman
Chapter VII. Some Proposed Reforms
This little work is written in the hope of calling attention to what the writer, out of his personal experience, believes is the only solution of the scandal of poverty-struck clergy.
If it does no more than this it will have attained its object; if it helps toward any permanent measure of reform, the writer will thank God.
The MS. was completed before the appearance of a similar work, Clerical Incomes, edited by Canon Masterman. It is interesting to observe a common agreement between the writer of that book and this.
The writer's thanks are gratefully expressed to the editor of the Daily Mail for his generous permission to use the article given in Chapter VI.
