“As the Berliner tablemate, your official organ, singles me out for attack, the only British member of Parliament thus honored, I take the liberty of addressing to you person ally this reply. All true English well-wishers of the real Germany read with dismay of your renewed attack upon helpless minorities. You come of a race second to none in bravery.honor meant much in the old Fatherland. How can you continue this un-German persecution of a people who have done you no wrong? Whom do you only attack — the feeble, the few and the innocent? Sir, we beg you to stop this backward butchery, and if you must bully some one, why not choose some one bigger than yourself?”
