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

Another warning from Wm, re: Americans:

"The background of everything is too irredeemably crude in our country, and the speech of our people too horrible, if you once let your self get sensitive to it."

Hence, the lecture H'ry delivered in America: "The Question of Our Speech."
