I am writing to protest the insolence of the author of “Vice vs. Virtue, A Puritan Remembrancer,” in the December, 1963, A MERICAN H ERITAGE . The question is not “… how could … people, … many of them our own forebears, have taken such things so literally and seriously?” The issue is, how could people in only a few decades degenerate to the point of openly ridiculing truth and righteousness? … There are still people in America to whom some things are sacred and honorable.
