The Jeffersonian, May 12, 1910.
Editor Jeffersonian: —Francisco Ferrer was put to death (murdered, in fact), in October, 1909, by the direct demand of the Catholic priests of Spain; his mortal offense being the creation and opening of independent secular schools, in which the current religious superstitions of Spain were altogether ignored.
In his early life he was an active military revolutionist, but in later years he became a Freemason and saw that triumphant revolutionists often became greater oppressors than the powers they overthrew. Hence, he turned his attention to the education of the young as being a more practical, though slower, method of bringing about beneficial changes in the government of his native land.
With this in mind, he wrote many small books and pamphlets and organized a propaganda of what he called “A Modern School.” One of his most important pamphlets is named “The Modern School.” It consists of twelve pages.
I enclose you a copy of it for your examination, and I may say that I have 600 copies for free distribution among the readers of The Jeffersonian. Any reader of your paper, therefore, who writes to me and requests a copy shall receive one —as far as they go.
