BURGLARS

Those poor burglars have gone to jail. I haven't anything against them, I bear them no malice & put no blame upon them, for it is only circumstances & environment that make burglars, therefore anybody is liable to be one. I don't quite know how I have managed to escape myself.
- letter to Marjorie Breckenridge, 1 December 1908
