A BRITISH author visiting America is surprised by many things, and one is that native journalists seem disposed to pay attention to any casual comment he may make about a new world of which he can know little; hardly more than a 16th century goatherd knew of Cathay, (He is never likely to admit he knows so little, yet that is about all he knows; he is more likely to be considering a book about the re‐discovery of America).
