Reading Experience:

'In the issue for December 23rd, 1915 of the NewYork "Nation" there is an extremely fine article on me by Stuart P. Sherman. On the whole I regard it as the best article I have seen on the subject. I should very much like to have seen this article reprinted, either with other by the same hand or alone, but I suppose that there is no chance of this.'
