Excerpt from The Hub and the Spokes Or, the Capital and Its Environs
Introductory words to books have long followed a set rule. In publishing The Hub and The Spokes, that rule will be broken possibly for the first time. In casting about for writers of this Introduction, the men who have so kindly responded and furnished that which follows, need, themselves, no introduction, since each in his line is too well known to require it. It is most heart pleasing to feel that such men should consent to write, and write so generously of an author, whose one great aim is to bring into more kindly relationship the two great peoples of the Ameri can Continent.
