In Justice to Mr. Mangasarian

Suppose my sentence at the close of the little note on Ingersoll in the December issue of The Conservator should suffer a change of punctuation so that it should read—" describing Ingersoll's work as wholly negative, a denial—and not an affirmation of truths and virtues ?"—would I then lie under suspicion of saying that Mr. Mangasarian had declared Ingersoll's work was a denial of " truths and virtues " ? Of course, Mr. Mangasarian did not say that, and I had not the intention to so report him.
