From ‘Henry James’, The Spectator, 4 March 1916: Englishmen are not likely ever to forget the generous thought which inspired the late Henry James to become a naturalised Englishman at the moment of England’s greatest distress… Henry James was good enough to say in substance that he was proud of England and her cause, and that he wished to stand with her in her trial. And now on the sorrowful occasion of his death every Englishman, care he much or little for the great art which the dead man cultivated, will wish to say that he is proud of Henry James.
