Now, Mr. Editor, I want to say that I do not resent being tagged as a descendant of a boat thief....
However, it is a little ironical to me, especially when I read... Roosevelt's tribute to my grandfather at the time of his death: "I think of Wilmot all of the time; I can see him riding a bucker, or paddling a canoe, or shooting an antelope, or doing the washing for his wife, or playing with the children. If ever there was a fine, noble fellow, he was one."
WILMOT S. DOW
YOU SHOULD KNOW: if you are going to take up girl watching
I see by your November 29th issue that my hobby (girl watching) has now been officially recognized as a sport.
To help you and your readers to get more pleasure out of this wonderful pastime, I am enclosing a copy of my Girl Watcher's Guide (Harper, $1.00), the only authoritative handbook on the subject ever published.
?See cuts for elementary rules and a few species to be found in this fascinating sport. For a field report on the startling new variety, the Compressed Poolpet, see p. 45.?ED.
