Note Relating to Cather
In defense of George DuMaurier: "It is certainly inconsistent that today, when Balzac and Tess of the d'Urbervilles is in all the public libraries, there should be objections to Trilby's appearance in Harper's Magazine. It is doubly inconsistent that people who can read unflinchingly Sarah Grand and Iota, with their cheap, vulgar, ignorant discussions of questions that should not be touched outside of a medical clinic, should shudder at the clean, dainty pages of Du Maurier's latest novel"; Iota is the pseudonym of Kathleen Mannington Caffyn, author of Yellow Aster (1894) and Children of Circumstance (1894).
