     H. Hanson, Colo.:—I suppose all the Anarchists will be driven out of the country now, becau[s]e one of them killed Pre[s]ident McKinley. Would it not be a good plan to drive all the Republicans out, too, because it was a Republican that killed Garfield? While we are at it we might just as well drive the Democrats out, also, because it was a Democrat that killed Abraham Lincoln, and while we are at the driving out business why not drive the whole Catholic church out, because all three of these president slayers perchance happened to be Catholics. Enclosed find sixt[y]-five cents for subscription to Lucifer, a stray copy having come m[y] way—also to pay for a few pamphlets.
