Dyer D. Lum on Voltaire
Document Item Type Metadata
Syracuse, (N. Y.,) Nov. 6, 1860.
Mr. Editor:--A few years ago, when out of business, I amused myself by translating a work of Voltaire's, entitled "Important Examination." It is one of the richest works of that immortal person, and to me it appears superior to the "Age of Reason." The style is equally forcible and terse, and interspersed with sarcastic remarks that stamp it as the work of Voltaire. If you would publish it in the columns of the Investigator, I would be pleased to forward it to your address.
Yours, truly, Dyer D. Lum.
[Thank you for your kind offer. We should be glad to receive the work.--Editor
