AMERICAN SENTIMENT ON THE WAR.
[TO THE EDITOR OF THE "SPECTATOR."]
SIR,—It may interest you to learn what is the public senti- ment in Boston and vicinity on your war with the Boers. Nearly every one I meet, unless he be an Irishman, believes that the preponderance of right is on your side, that your success will make for civilisation, and that the generous sym- pathy of your people and friendly neutrality of your Govern- ment during the Spanish-American War deserve a hearty return in kind. I regret to say that I cannot speak for New York City and the country as far west as the Missouri River, but the opinion of people of English descent in New York and in the northern part of that vast territory probably does not differ from that of their ancestors in New England. I hope that before this reaches you we shall hear of an English victory.
