In a word, without going over all the journals in the world, there was not a scientific publication, from the Journal of Evangelical Missions to the Revue Algerienne et Coloniale, from the Annales de la Propagation de la Foi to the Church Missionary Intelligencer
, that had not something to say about the affair in all its phases.
You want to get on the INTELLIGENCER, you want to get in at once, and you have had no previous experience.
It will show the stuff that's in you, besides, and it will be a better claim upon the INTELLIGENCER people than all the lines from all the senators and magnates in the world.
But the thing for you to do, and it requires nerve, I assure you, is to go out, make arrangements for two turns, (Wednesday and Saturday nights, I believe), do your two turns, and write it up for the SUNDAY INTELLIGENCER.
That's what the readers of the SUNDAY INTELLIGENCER want to know.
Paint those pictures in words and the INTELLIGENCER will have you.
And in this fashion, while the thin, dark man and the large, blond woman warbled dulcetly out on the stage and the other professionals followed in their turns, did Charley Welsh put Edna wise, giving her much miscellaneous and superfluous information and much that she stored away for the SUNDAY INTELLIGENCER.
The INTELLIGENCER will take it, without doubt, and take you too.
Now that you've shown the stuff you're made of, I should esteem it, ahem, a privilege to give you a line myself to the INTELLIGENCER people.
