How THE ARENA is regarded by Leading Thinkers.
ALFRED RUSSELL WALLACE, LL.D., F.L.S., author of "Darwinism," "Malay Archipelago," etc. The eminent scientist and author writes the editor as follows:--
"I think you have succeeded in the very difficult task of improving on all existing literary periodicals. The articles deal with questions of vital interest to every thoughtful person; and they are all well written, original, and thorough, without being heavy." . . .
1. Editor Charles H. Smith's Note: A full-page ad concerning The Arena (Boston) appeared on page 755 of the Political Science Quarterly issue of December 1890; included in the ad were endorsements of the then-new title by several notables, including Wallace.
