Friends, Near and Far

N continuance of the familiar talks with readers and from readers as

exemplified in the recently published pages called “Two Letters” and “ The Best Magazine in the World,” we present a few comments from our daily mail. They certainly have given us pleasure and they may show other friends what The Outlook is trying to do and how its efforts are recognized:

Why Soldiers Like The Outlook

Mail to the soldiers seems very slow and uncertain. If the powers that be will allow your publication to reach the boys, it will be very valuable. It is one of the few papers that has courage to give the public what it is entitled to know.

An Excellent Form of Commendation

I was greatly delighted with your article “ Two Letters,"on the inside cover page of The Outlook for June 12, and thought of writing you a letter of commendation, but decided to send you a check instead.

My subscription expires October, 1918. I enclose a check for five dollars; one dollar will pay up to January, 1919, and the remaining four dollars will pay my subscription up to January, 1920.

I am seventy-eight years of age—a childless widow—with few relatives, and one of my special comforts is the weekly visit of The Outlook. Lewisburg, Pennsylvania.


From an Educator in the Philippines

The Outlook is the best means that I have found to prevent expatriation. The Outlook has helped to make me a better American than I could har: been and helps to keep me so. Your editorials frequently reprinted by our newspapers here, with no credit given you. . . . At times they do mention your name, but

many times they do not. As they always use the editorial in a good cause, that of telling the truth about the war and our reasons for being in it, I do not suppose you mind. ...I have sent my used copies for the last two years to a Tyrolese priest. While never rabid on the war, he has been and still is loyal to his country. I suppose it is a case of “ my country right or wrong" wio him, but I am sure that he cannot have me admiration left for his country's allies.

Not a Recorder Merely I have taken The Outlook for a number of years, and, although I read other periodicals, I like particularly well the manner in which The Outlook presents its subjects. It is not merely a recorder of current events, but an interpreter of current events, lending interest as well as profit to its readers. Washington, D. C.


From an Officer in the Philippines

Some writer has recently said that we were brough: to the point of taking up arms against Germany b: the intellectuals of our country. Such being the case, you have had a great deal to do with out finally coming to our senses and waking up to our peril as well as our duty-for The Outloo is certainly the recognized journal of the inte lectuals.
