EXTRACT OF REPLY OF MR. JAMES TO THE OBSERVER

To Mr. Greeley:
LMD-4.1 I do not see that Mr. Andrews’ queries need detain us. The numerous fallacies and misconceptions on which they are grounded either suggest their own correction to the observant reader or else stand fully corrected in my replies to the “Observer” and yourself. Besides, the entire “indifference” which Mr. Andrews professes as to any possible issue of the discussion between the “Observer” and myself gives a decided shade of impropriety to his interference in it. I value my time and thoughts much too highly to bestow them upon those who can afford to be indifferent to them; and, accordingly, I shall hold myself excused if I confine my attention to yourself and the “Observer.”
