To the Editor:—
I have read the editorial, "Elements of Style," in The Journal, Jan. 23, page 345. Naturally, I am flattered. I must accept the compliment with some reservation, however, because as a matter of fact I have on occasion made a number of revisions or drafts before I have been satisfied with what I have written. It seems to me that this is bound to be so.
