100th post: 'Shall I Slay?' - editorial reply by Douglas Macmillan (1884-1969)
The above letter and response was published in a short-lived Christian vegetarian periodical, entitled The Better Quest (November, 1911 edition). In the same year, Macmillan founded the society which eventually became Macmillan Cancer Support, as noted by Dr. James Gregory in Of Victorians and Vegetarians (Tauris Academic Studies, 2007).
The London Vegetarian Society published 'Shall I Slay' as a tract by Macmillan in 1909.
