Milwaukee, Wis., July 5, 1908.
To the Editor:
—Your Berlin correspondent, whom you introduced to your readers as a man of high standing, writes of the late Professor Hoffa: "He was closely related to Americans, as he was born in South America." Now, all the numerous biographies of Hoffa I have read state that he was born in South Africa and was never in America until a few years ago. My criticism may seem trivial, but such statements, if allowed to stand, may reflect on the authenticity of other interesting things your correspondent is telling us.
