Reading Experience:

Evidence:

'The Last Post has hitherto had rather a bad press. There were two most violent attacks - on that and N.Y.i. N. A. in the [underlined] Times [end underlining] last Sunday, for no discoverable reason, and the [underlined] Herald-Tribune [end underlining] was not very good. I have written nice things on everbody on that paper, so they can't very well employ their staff to write about me. So Irita - rather at my suggestion - got an English novelist called Macfee to do it, a sort of blighted person I wanted to give a job to. However, as a set off Harry Hensen of the World which has hitherto not liked me, gave it his column and as he is one of the most celebrated column-writers in the States that is not so bad.'
