Letter from HJM to W. W. Anderson
Danish; Schools; Education; German
HJM advises a W. W. Anderson here about a previous request he had made about the opening of a Danish school in Scranton. While HJM does say that he does not see why the school should not be opened, he also says that, as with German, the American education system would be better served by spending time inculcating patriotism in children.
