TRAVELLING from King's Cross by the “Flying Scotsman” one day last Summer, the Editor found himself at tea‐time in the excellent company of an American lady. Not much was being said, but he gathered that the lady was bookish, and that she was from the Middle West. Taking the chance, he asked her how Dr. Bostwick was keeping, and the query elicited the fact that the lady was Dr. Bostwick's chief of staff in the Reference Department of St. Louis Public Library, and that she carried a name well‐known to librarians everywhere. Since going home, Miss Katharine T. Moody has been good enough to send an interesting letter, and we have now received her permission to quote from it:
