His Letters Margery Kinnan Ilawlings writes the brief but poignant introduction to "I Dream of the Day," a collection of personal letters written by Caleb Milne to his mother—one of the thousands thousands of fine young men who have given their lives in the war. They are printed in the hope that their message may reach other mothers. Deems Taylor comments on the volume: "It is one of war's major tragedies that young men capable of such vision, such self-abnegation and compassion could not be spared to help shape the peace that, God willing, will be as nearly permanent as men of good will can make it." Perhaps the most beautiful of the missives is the last letter written home, on the eve of starting on a dangerous mission in which Caleb lost his life. ("I Dream of the Day," by Caleb Milne. Longmans Green & Co., New York.)
