Hotel Hood Portland,
Ay Good Friend In the finest city on the
London,Social 1st, north '.vest coast,
tfoveltest,writer juiy 28/1911.
jote you from the Portland Labor ores-.
No nan can fall lower than a soldier,
It is a depth beneath which re cannot eo".
I ta;e it for .--ranted I have quoted you
aright,and if so, permit me to gently criticise your remarks.
Takeing your remark in a broad and general sense in wnioh
it will be generaly looked upon by readers who possess moderate intelligence,
it to me,appears as the you had lowered your r anhood, love of country, respect
for the goverment which protects your home, property, family and all ycu posses^,
simply, to give expression to a paragraph which will bring only notoriety.
oone minds ima- tne that notoriety is fame, that notoriety but
builds one a monucent in the hearts of our citizens,that a notorious e; rres-
sion,made in prejudice,hatred and bigotry...against thoes who freely give all
for their countrys good and future welfare.. ..will,rebound to their fane
ar.d social and national credit. .j?8. .,
Now permit^to sweetly say unto you as a
friend,older, than you, that no sane citizen of trie .United States or' America,
directly insults the Intel lib ence of the citizens who are loyal to our gover-
nent,without suffering sooialy,moraly,in business and in p;enemi estimation
of v;hat has bean his orevious stand in life.
Some oeor,lo -i ht alle & that you thot nore of a white slaver.. ..drunken pimns....thugs who lay in wait for to throttle women,...thiefs
who break into one's house. ...blackmailers who besmirch °A|t^ good name....
a airty bar tender doseinc-. out noisen to his fellow ,Tian,or^any <?ood virteous
mother of children....any sweet woman in society.... any clean minded can...
all that was for the uplifting of all that is orood,cure and lovable in life,
is oelow what your level of thot was ween you wrote that vile onra'-r-irh insisting every clean minded man md woman. I regret it,you are a larpre loser,
a black Barn will stand against you, tiie will not cover it with weeds,nor
flowers#nor sunshin? to era-;e it's hurt to you,to all,for the citizens remember one not tn »-ity,but with soorn and contempt.
indly receive my felicitations to and for a higher.no1 lev
Ideals of Hf:.> t>hivia me to be a sincere,! indly friend.
