Elizabeth Eames Roebling: A Growing Concern

A Growing Concern. When I went to question her specifically on some holdings such as Dow Chemical and Walmarts and Coca Cola with snippets from our Earth Testimony... she countered that Quakers did not have an Earth Testimony. They had testimony against war, gambling, alcohol, and tobacco.. and they were running a fund completely clear of that. Then I was entranced by all the large ads in the Friends Journal for the :"Quaker" homes... That was when I realized that none of the Quakers that I knew and loved would ever be there since they simply do not have that kind of money....
