Czolgosz Heard From
A Missouri exchange has quite a lengthy letter
from Czolgosz. It is from the banks of the Styx, Sheol, and is dated Oct. 29th.
Here are the most interesting paragraphs:
“I arrived here at 7:22 this—Tuesday—morning, and found them expecting me, and I’m very cozily located in the lower corridor down next to the furnace.
“My death was quite a shocking affair (they used 1700 volts, I believe) and my whole nervous system is shattered, but I find my time so taken up with other affairs that I don’t mind it much.
“Don’t you know, this place isn’t anything like I expected. They take an active interest, here, in earthly doings and have places provided for all of those who are expected soon. They’re looking for a whole raft of anarchists in the near future. They’re very anxious to extend the glad hand to Soboski, Count Levitski and Emma Goldman. They want them all very much and they want Herr Most. Pardon the pun, as I don’t pheel a but phunny.
“Really, I must close as I am almost prostrated with the heat. It’s nearly as bad as it was in Missouri last August, but I dare say I shall get used to it in time, as I notice that it doesn’t seem to bother Bob Ingersoll.
