Reading Experience:

'When I was living in Sallie's home one of the male boarders who called himself a Socialist showed me some articles in a Sunday paper written by Robert Blatchford, "Nunquam", dealing with slums and sweated industries. These articles excited much interest, and many were the arguments in Mrs. J's house as to the rights or wrongs of the matter.'
