Review of Reviews,  7 (1893), 659.

Last Word From Mr. W. Parker Snow. To the Editor of the Review of Reviews

W Parker Snow, 1, Victoria Road, Bexley Heath, Kent




Exploration, Heterodoxy, Patronage

    Prints a bitter letter from Snow which complains at the paltry sum of £15 6s. contributed to his retirement fund after the appeal in a previous number of the Review of Reviews [see RR1/7/4/1 and , RR1/7/5a/13], and suggests that more would have been raised if the appeal had been made on behalf of '"poor savages" abroad; or one of the hordes of foreign locusts devastating our land, and driving native born to want and misery'. Also protests that William T Stead 'against my first wish, placed me on a sort of pedestal (pillory, it has rather turned to be), before the public, with certain inducements held out, proving now to be fallacious', but avows nevertheless 'I have fought a bold fight in a just and national cause, ever undisguisedly, and, be I ill or well, poor or not, shall stand firm to my last hours'.
