“There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all argument, and which cannot fail to keep man in everlasting ignorance. This principle is contempt prior to examination":-Dr. Paley.
A greater than Paley has said: "He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is a folly, and a shame unto him.—Proverbs XVIII. 13.

TO THE SHORT-HAIRED BUSINESS MEN
OF AMERICA, MEN, CHUCK FULL OF SENTIMENT, ENTERPRISE AND GOODWILL who, given facts, can usually deliver an intelligent opinion and judgment quicker, it is alleged, than “hell can scorch a feather."
Having never been nearer hell than France and Belgium during war-time, I am unable to say if the above time limit is a reasonable one, but cheerfully and with confidence I submit the following facts, history, statements, and deductions, both Biblical and profane, to your mature business judgment, well knowing that they will be dealt with by a fifty-fifty mixture of grey matter and horse sense, which is all one could ask.
