Letter on Kropotkin
IT IS with the greatest pleasure that I send a few lines to help in the commemoration of our friend Kropotkin's seventieth birthday. His work will be remembered for all time ; for by it he has brought so much nearer the day when the true human society will be realized on earth — that spontaneous, voluntary, non-governmental society whose germ was first planted ages ago among nearly all primitive peoples, but whose glorious flower and fulfillment awaits us— and perhaps not so very far distant in the future — as the goal of our free, rational and conscious endeavor.
May he long live — and you also — to assist in the great work !
Fraternally and heartily yours,
