He writes, in part: "I have recently returned from a trip southward where I was speaking in behalf of the English-Speaking Union, the World Court, and the League of Nations... I find my audiences keenly interested in the reshaping of the international policy of the United States. They share my mortification that, in this matter of the comity of nations, the United States should join itself not with the fifty-four civilized states that have come together in the League, but with Dahomey and Afghanistan... "Light soiling, usual folds, minor chipping at margins, else very good.
