Letters from the People
A Card from Mr. Chaney
Editor Constitution: In your excellent report of my sermon in this morning’s paper, for which as for the kindly words accompanying it, I heartily thank you. I am reported saying that the Young Men’s Library and the reform school for youthful criminals are inert. Now, the library is very far from inert and I cannot let an other impression go forth from me. The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Dumb Animals and the Reform School were two sleeping agencies which I referred to.
The statement that the Church of Our Father was named for him who went about dong good would also need modifying to suit a Unitarian sermon. But I am less concerned about that. The report in the main was true and I wish to thank the reporter rather than correct him. I am also glad of this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation of the courtesies and hospitality of the press of Atlanta towards myself and my utterance since I have been here. Alsway truly yours, George Leonard Chaney
