Arthur Symons
From a letter to his wife in 1900

By the way, I asked Hardy just now about what Harmsworth says. He entirely disbelieves it, feels sure it is merely temporary, and that there will soon be a great reaction, when people will be tired of wars and the like, and quite ready to return to literature. And he points out that some of the daily papers are giving more and more space to it, as it is.
