Wm to H'ry, Feb. 8, 1904. Age: 62

In advance of H'ry's trip for The American Scene, Wm offers H'ry a warning about Americans:

"The only thing in America is to get among good private people, and suffer their hospitality, which is overdone....The thing is to make good nature & human tolerance your mission, remembering that God made these people and Christ died for them, and that the business-ideals, and ideas of personal comfort which animate them are also part of His plan, as much as your ideals are!"
