" For hundreds of years, all our upbringing, all our respect, has been devoted to education through the word, to understanding the word. Words flow out of us, in and over all of us! The word is loved before anything else. And the two arts that now sit in power over the world are those of the word and of technology.
How vain it is to speak with form. And yet - what inner pleasure ! colours, form; the triumph of the senses. The senses, not the brain's. The eye's, not that of reflection."
FROM RAGNAR OSTBERG'S ESSAY DEDICATED TO THE SWEDISHAUTHORS HJALMAR SODERBERG, 1919.
When Jim was still an obscure young lawyer, struggling to make his way in New York, his career was suddenly advanced by a brilliant marriage. Genevieve Whitney was the only daughter of a distinguished man. Her marriage with young Burden was the subject of sharp comment at the time. It was said she had been brutally jilted by her cousin, Rutland Whitney, and that she married this unknown man from the West out of bravado. She was a restless, headstrong girl, even then, who liked to astonish her friends. Later, when I knew her, she was always doing something unexpected. She gave one of her town houses for a Suffrage headquarters, produced one of her own plays at the Princess Theater, was arrested for picketing during a garment-makers' strike, etc.
