[untitled]

     W. Fretz, Trenton, N. J.:—I am somewhat in arrears but you kindly continued sending the paper, for which I am glad. I herewith enclose a dollar. I was pleased with what you said in No. 883 in regard to the murdered president; it was equitable and just. Such crimes tend to centralize government and make it still stronger, while it [sic] weakens the cause of Anarchy and brings disgrace and reproach upon it. I say this because Czolgosz claims to be an Anarchist. No paper can countenance assassination if it wants to hold the respect of well-meaning people. Even a president has a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
