     Lemoore, California, Sept. 27, 1901.
Friend Moore:
     Enclosed find $1.00 for paper, also my opinion of your fearless style of openly exposing wrong doing [sic] in general and especially of your enemies and the hypocritical enemies of our anti-religious cause. Stay with them and may conditions bring to the surface thousands more just like you to carry on the cause when you are done.
     Notwithstanding religious ignorance and foolishness are fast subsiding and becoming obsolete, there is an immense amount of each still existing.
     Look at Roosevelt’s idiotic recommendation of a day to worship the Christian’s God, who, if there is such a being is the most dastardly, infamous anarchist of the whole outfit. Why don’t they hang their God first and electrocute the other miserable cuss afterward? The worst of all the maladies of the human family is religious blunder.

B. HAMLIN, M. D.
