LETTER TO EDITOR
AN IMMIGRANT'S VIEW
Editor Day Book: A lesson in
history to the Hearst's politicians'
clique. (By an immigrant from Rus
sia.) I am not sure if you will be able
to print in your paper the few words
I am sending to you. The main
cause, I suppose, wili be the language
used by me. I realize that I am not
a specialist in the English language.
No wonder. I am not quite a year in
this country and never knew about
the English language before.
But the fact that I am a short time
in this country doesn't matter. I am
watching the life of this country with
still more interest because it's new
The subject I wanted to touch here
is the proposed intervention of the
United States in the Mexican home
affairs. There won't be any discov
ery on my side. I simply intend to
bring up a fact from the history of
the French revolution. History is the
experience of nations in their strug
gle for development, and the Ameri
can politicians from American-Examiner
clique don't seem to realize
the value of it in the present social
and political life of any nation. That
what I wanted to point out is the sit
uation in France in 1791.
It was three years after the French
revolution broke out. The revolution
was coming to an end. Then came
the intervention of the European
coalition. The monarchs of Europe
gathered in Pilnitz and gave out, the
27th of August, 1791, the famous-in-history
declaration, in which they
said that their duty was to rebuild the.
old slavery system and return peace
Every one of you knows, probably,
the results of that interference. It
was fine peace given to France and
the- whole of Europe by that inter
vention (?). With that declaration
began in Europe those wars which
continued for25 years. This inter
ference brought a lot of catastro
phes to France and whole Europe.
The historian of those times (Hul
ard) says: "The Pilnitz. declaration
cost Europe one-fourth of a million
of human lives and made impossible
the peaceful development of France."
This fact ought to be a good lesson
for the Hearst clique of politicians
who want to send the American boys
across the border. It seems that
President Wilson knows better his
tory than any one of Hearst's clique.
P. S. In the same time 7hen I be

began to hate Hearst's newspapers.
