Letters, Dec. 30, 1935

Distinction Sirs:

May I correct a misstatement in TIME, Dec. 16, p. 19, concerning the "liar" charge against Major Berry?

I did not call Major Berry "an unqualified liar." What I did say was that his charge against me was "an unqualified lie." I stand squarely by the statement as I made it.

This distinction may seem technical but is none the less real. A man may make a statement which is "an unqualified lie" without the man himself being an "unqualified liar." . . .
