Darien, Conn: Office of Darian Review, 1917. Very Good. One leaf of newsprint paper folded to make four pages; printed on the first three, last page blank. Age-toned and with tiny tears and a little crease in the upper margin, but stable and otherwise very good. Possibly issued as an extra, an editorial written upon the entry of the U.S. into the war. It contains several exhortations to patriotism and good citizenship, a healthy does of anti-socialism, and an anecdote told by American General Leonard Wood about a soldier generously helping an Italian-American recruit carry his heavy trunk to his recruitment camp, the punch-line being that the generous soldier was Robert Bacon, former Secretary of State and Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to France. The Italian's response: "I don't know who da man was, but he was a damn good fellow." Presumably very scarce. (Inventory #: 422358)
