"Lines 29-34, p. 173, of the first issue of the first impression read: 'The war! The war! They were chasing German-American professors out of Canadian colleges, and making other demonstrations of hostility toward all others having pro-German leanings. I, with my German ancestry on one side and my German name and my German sympathies--what might they not have done to me!'. Shortly after publication, a new issue of this impression was created when a cancel for pages 173-174 was prepared and tipped in, with lines 29-34 of p. 173 now reading: 'Naturally there was much excitement, and on all sides were evidences of preparations being made to send armaments and men to the Mother Country. We had looked forward with the greatest pleasure to a trip to Canada, but the conditions were so unfavorable that we hesitated to chance it.'"--Cf. Pizer.
