Sir: The letter hy I'rsenbuvh, ivhleli appeared In luai Saturday's Herald, in reference to venereal dl souse, and SHRrogatiid dlHtrlels whs very exhuustive. and i-oncluslve, nu fur ah the rnd-lifflit districts nre eon-cerued, bill It mhmus lo mo tlmt lie .^hoived very poor Judmnent In uiuk-iiiB fliieh a nweepliiK dunuiiclutlon of Hie men at tho fionl. Firstly, he has not been over, and h(in therefore only hearxuy ovldnncn on which to base his ehiirKu. See ondly, ho makes tho allegation wide open by leaving tho public to giiens whether ho is hlttliiK at tho Canadian troops or the Imperial. From what wo have heard from such men an Captain 1'enrnoii, of the O.C.S., and the very reverend biahop who Is In charRo of the American Chaplain Services, it would seem as (IioukIi thoro was very llltlfl licentloii.snonB bo. !nK on olthor in Kngland or in franco; nnd surely theno roverond gentloiuon, who have been in close touch with actual conditions are the best Judges tit I ho matter. 1 think that I'rflonbfich has atted In a most unwarrantable manner In making such a sweeping accusation against the men now fighting for ub, and It seomu to me that he Hhauld ho compelled to either .subxtaiitlate his ihur-Kes or imblJoly apolofiiKe.
