Did You Know?
[In a letter to Dr. Marshland
I do not pretend to understand the nature of friendship between men, Dr. Marshland, but surely in its better points it resembles that between women. Where, then, was your loyalty to Dr. Harrison? Where was your kindness and respect? And where now is your compassion? His career is ruined, his reputation savaged, and his courtship annihilated, all by your willfully mischievous hand.
