Mosquitoes

Sirs:

. . . The reason why I have not subscribed is because "famed," "Manhattan" and the aggravatingly meaningless captions in TIME irritated to the point of threatening non-sanity once. If you'll stop saying "famed" in every death notice and "Manhattan" for New York. I'll re-subscribe.Otherwise, I prefer mosquitoes are being less irritative.

EMILY POST (Mrs. Price Post) Edgartown, Mass.

To the famed author of Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics and at Home condolences on her onetime threatening non-sanity. —ED.
