London. Aug. !8. Novelists, both
men and women, receive many queer
letters letters of praise, of condemna
tion of alt sorts. But Miss Winifred
Graham, the English authoress, Is prob
ably unique in having received an
epistolary "roast" from a high and
mighty sheikh of the Soudanese desert.
In the course of it she and all other
women are told their value from the
Mohammedan viewpoint, which is, it
eems, that they are of no ooqsequence
In the universe, except as potential
mothers. . iAA .
"World Without End." written by
Miss Graham, was published a lew
months ago. One of Its most Interest
ing features Is a detailed and pictur
esque description of the hitherto hidden
mysteries of a Moslem shrine. This
Mohammedan "holy of holies'' la strict
ly forbidden to the eyes of all Infidels
and "Christian dogs."
Strange as It may seem, a copy of
the novel found its way into the des
ert. Perhaps a Cook's tourist threw it
aside or left It at ome stopping place
on the Nile. At any rate an Arab pre
aented a copy to Sheikh All Mohammed
of Moudlrtat-Darfour, known as "the
holy man of the desert."
The laying bare of the secrets of a
Moslem shrine horrified him and the
discovery that a woman had done this,
Intensified the horror. So tbe learned
helkh compoaed a Ion screed, which
his secretary prepared and aent to Miss
Graham, through her publishers. This
"In the name of God, the most
Gracious and after saluting yourself.
"We have received one of your books
and have noted Its contents through one
of our frlenda who haa come to us
from remote countries and Joined us."
After which Introduction the sheikh
proceeds to rebuke the novelist for ven
turing to deal with a religious subject
"which demands very careful Investiga
tion," and declares:
"You are a woman and have no value
In the universe, except that you might
be a mother; you will bring down upon
Sourseir me displeasure or me Ainuuij
y, and He will punish you."
Then follows a stern denunciation of
the "Calumnies which you have spread
abroad concerning this sacred coun
try," and In closing the autnoress is
urged to send her son. If she has one,
to Mecca to pray for forgiveness.
