Excerpt from A War Correspondent on His Work
The public seems to have formed for itself two widely different pictures of the present - day War Correspondent. There are many people who figure us as breathless young men who dash about, presumably on horseback, among cannon and ... bursting shells and lines of cheering infantry, seizing and jotting down the impressions of the moment, then hurrying to the nearest tele. Graph office to send them red-hot to their respective journals. It is the traditional picture, composite of reminiscences of Russell, Archibald Forbes, and Bennet Burleigh, with something of Frederic Villiers and Melton Prior thrown in.
