My Dear Sir:—
Will you be kind enough to mention at the close of my article, in your own language of course, that as some thoughtless, superficial or shallow minded individuals in various parts of the country have attempted to connect me in some way with the horrible crime of Czolgosz (because I predicted it) that it is due me to state that I am a man of reputation and responsibility in the community; that I am a Republican and believe in all our glorious republican institutions, that I voted for McKinley both times, that I predicted his election both times, that I speak of him in the same spirit that any true-blue American would feel when speaking of Washington, Lincoln, Garfield or Grant. And, his assassination, which, while it did not surprise me, owing to my knowledge of Astrology, came nevertheless, as a frightful shock. I also believe that Anarchy is a deadly poison in our body politic and no means can be too harsh to forever exterminate it.
