A Caveat Gjih to tke (Batkedral

^JT-'HE CATHEDRAL oj
J St. John the Divine, in
-*- New York City, will,
when completed, bear much
the same relation to America
that Westminster has to Eng-
land, Milan to Italy or Notre
Dame to France. It will be
much more than the finest
Episcopal church in the
United States; it will be a
symbol of the worship of Cod
by all the races and creeds oj
our country. It is fitting that
in such a place great works of
art, the summit of man's
achievement, should be found.
In them the artists have given
expression to the spiritual
emotions of mankind. An
example has been set by Mr.
Kleinberger, of the Klein-
berger Galleries in New York,
which it is to be hoped that
many others will jollow. He
has recently given one oj
Veronese's masterpieces,
"The Baptism of Christ," to
the Cathedral. The painting
is one oj the jew works
oj thisVenetian artist
in America.
