Dr. King answers to Rose Wilder Lane as follows: "Dear Mrs. Lane: "Thanks for your good letter of Vpnl 291 h. it i s a good thing to -'car up any philosophical points Concerning which we may possibly oe in disagreement. My guess is hat divergences in our opinions ire not really great. "Being a scientist, I am preju- peed ,n favor of precision in def- nitions and feel that it is desirablo Jo adhere to commonly accepted Icrms in so far as this is possible. Economists define profit in mone- arv terms and lo me it. socms "•isc lo stick to this limitation.

I suspect indeed, that the planter who owned a dozen or more slaves was more (prosperous than the well-to-do (farmer in the North. Since he was (brought up to believe that slavery jwas inherently Tight', he probably .enjoyed a more comfortable and pleasant existence than did th (Northern farmer. I believe, ther ,'fore, that the Southern plante •did gain decidedly at the expen (of the slaves. They only lost ou iwhen the North took away the slaves. I see no reason to suppbs [that wliere, after emancipation I he slaves went on working volun i ai-ily for their masters, the mas ters did not gain by the arrange ment.
