The New York World invited prominent authors to write a piece on the topic of divorce but objected to a statement in Dreiser's article on the grounds that it might offend Catholics. They offer to print it without the statement. Dreiser's response: "It is gratifying to find the New York World so careful of the feelings of the Catholic Church. I trust that in connection with all other organisations and individuals -- small or large -- it will be as tender. I am returning the check. Please return the article".
