Problems of a Great City

White, Arnold


WHOEVER would grapple with the Problems of a Great City, must bear the burden of a heavy heart. The nature of the task, the failure of bygone efforts, the apathy of the comfortable classes, discourage fresh attempts to set forth remedies for evils visible to all. Any contribution, however, towards the settlement of the Social question, if prepared thoughtfully and with labour, and presented with a humble sense of inherent deficiencies, may perhaps be accepted as an instalment of the solution Society itself alone can apply.
