The article presents information on the book "Hidden Threads of History: Wilson Through Roosevelt," by Louis Wehle. Wehle is a sorowful citizen and his woe is incurable because it stems from incompatibilities that all the king's horses and all the king's men cannot remove. Because he is a legalist, his book is highly critical of his friend; but because he is an honest man it is not a snarling book, it is merely woebegone. The legalistic mind cannot accept and probably cannot apprehend the concept that principles of law are relative to time and circumstance, because such a concept to such a mind seems to dissolve all values.
