Wm to H'ry, May 3, 1903. Age: 61

Anticipating H'ry's visit to America, Wm speaks at length about disgusting American gustatory habits, and then arrives at the heart of the matter:

"The vocalization of our countrymen is really, and not conventionally, so ignobly awful that the process of hardening onesself thereto is very slow, and would in your case be impossible.  It is simply incredibly loathsome."
