Introduction


As the strike spread across the United States, it provoked a growing national controversy. While some communities clearly supported the strikers, many feared the disorder and violence that seemed inevitably to accompany their protests. Others, like the laborer who authored this letter to the editor, worried about the long-term economic consequences of the strike.

Questions to Consider


  • What advice did the author offer?

  • What justification does he give for his advice?

  • How did he respond to those claiming that capital and labor were enemies?
