Chapter Three [excerpt]

     Comparatively few of her acquaintances knew that Mrs. Catherwood was present at the trial of Czolgosz, the assassin of President McKinley. She secured a ticket of admission through some influential public officials, under an assumed name. While not condoning the great crime, her sympathies were deeply touched for the young criminal and for the civil and political conditions [68][69] of the country which made such crimes possible. She saw in the case a tragic story which she was loth [sic] to relinquish the production.
