Default Looking for "Christian Endeavor Greeting"

In the "Christian Endeavor Manual" (copyright 1903), available on
Google books he

http://books.google.com/books?id=w9x...age&q=&f=false

on page 289, it says:

It is also the custom of this society to present to each new member a
copy of this book, "The Christian Endeavor Greeting".

I'm assuming that the "Greeting" is _not_ the same as the 306-page
"Manual", and they talk about having two versions, the regular 10-cent
version and then the 25-cent presentation edition.

I can't find anything on the web about the "Christian Endeavor
Greeting". Anybody heard of this book/pamphlet?

Thanks,
Chris

Possibly http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...etails?ie=UTF8

or http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/Sear...ting&x=66&y=14

or http://catalog.loc.gov/cgi-bin/Pwebr...D=9126189&v3=1

It might also be worth asking your local library if they can track one
down for you.

Looking at it again, the Amazon link looks like not quite the right

I'm going to assume that the greeting is, in fact, closely
associated with Alcoholics Anonymous.......and this
all might be explained further he

OP, are you leading us to find you something of great
value to AA collectors?

Not bloody likely. AA wasn't founded until 1935.

So? CE still exists today.

The link clearly explains the pre-AA CE movement and its
influence on AA..
