This article surveys the remarks of two American women delivered on late nineteenth century national forums dedicated to women’s affairs, namely, the Congress of Women at the World’s Columbian Exposition in 1893 and the Second National Congress of Mothers in 1898. Chicago Presbyterian, Laura H. Clark, and Boston Methodist, Emily True De Reimer, constitute a window onto turn of the twentieth century American cosmopolitanism, engagements with ideas of religious pluralism and the sacred histories of non-Christians.
