BRACERS Record Detail
To access the original letter, email the Ready Division.
Re their refusal to print his article in The New York Times. "... my only way of describing the ideal newspaper and of illustrating and making clear my points was to mention ways in which it would differ from actual present-day newspapers. In order to spare the sensibilities of American readers, I drew almost all my instances from the British press. Though the article doubtless 'tells' my 'opinions on a variety of other subjects', the accurate précis of the article, which I append herewith, seems to show that your editors are wrong in saying that 'there is very little' in it 'on what ideal newspapers would be like'."
Two pages of notes on what BR did in his article follow.
