Charles William Daniel
(1871-1955) was a writer and publisher who did much to disseminate Tolstoyan and pacifist ideas, and ideas about food reform and
alternative medicine. The magazines that he edited and published
included works by many of the advanced thinkers of the time.
Captured below are people mentioned by John Thomas in Singing for
Health and I have assumed that their mention implies that each of them
were well known by John Thomas hence their mention.
Reading about these people helps to form a picture of the
life of John Thomas. These were his friends and acquaintances.
Stopford Augustus Brooke (1832 - 1916) was an Irish churchman,
royal chaplain and writer. He was born in the rectory of Glendoen, near Letterkenny, Donegal, Ireland, of which parish
his maternal grandfather, Joseph Stopford, was then rector.
On the inside cover of his book, John Thomas has
written down one of Brooke's poems. I would be interested to
know if another copy of this poem exists.

poem Trees is probably the most quoted poem in American
