These writings were presented by Curt Regen at the Adult Forum of the First-day School of the Rahway and Plainfield Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends, Plainfield, New Jersey, during April and May, 1970. In connection with the efforts surrounding a recent successful application for a NJ Historical Trust Grant to restore portions of the Meeting House exterior, a number of historical documents surfaced. he meeting recently authorized a committee to assemble and preserve this material, and the reprinting of this document is one result of that effort.

Curt Regen was born in Vienna, and after working in England for a number of years, came to the US on a "temporary" job assignment. He remained and eventually settled in North Plainfield with his beloved wife, Rosalie. Curt was a mover and a doer - was courteous, yet bluntly came quickly to the point of any matter under discussion. He was a long time member of the Rahway & Plainfield Monthly Meeting, serving as Clerk for many years as well as on the Ministry & Council and Religious Education commitees and filling many other posts for the Monthly Meeting as well as the NY Yearly Meeting. The writings which follow are but a sample of the richness he brought to the Meeting and Friends and friends everywhere.
