Thank you, Sarah and Cabasilas, for both your suggestion and the link to The Golden Age, May 5, 1937, respectively.
Van Amburgh and Sullivan appear to have seen only goodness and truth embodied in their fearless and much-maligned leader. Salter had shown himself so incredibly mean and unappreciative of the fatherly and warm Joseph Rutherford.
Why should anyone object to gifts given Rutherford by those who love him? Not one cent of Society money was used to procure any of the homes or cars provided for the President's use (and that solely for the Lord's work). After all, the Judge needed a bed upon which to sleep. There was surely no undue luxury foisted upon the Lord's humble servant.
I feel so much better now. All in the interests of truth and justice.
Wish I could get over Van Amburgh's misspelling reciving so easily.
If I had proofreader at Bethel during that era none of this would have happened!
