Excerpt from Tactics of Infidels
In 1882 I wrote a series of letters reviewing Inger-soil's tactics and assertions anent Christianity and religion in general, as exhibited in two articles published by him in the North American Review. These letters were subsequently collected and published in book form under the title, Notes on Ingersoll. The little book had a large sale and was favorably received by the religious as well as by the secular press. Believing that Ingersoll - who is cunning of fence -would take advantage of my obscurity and treat the book with haughty silence, I said in the conclusion of the Notes: "Let some of his disciples or admirers rehabilitate his smirched character. We hold ourselves responsible to him and to all the glib little whiffets of his shallow school."
My anticipation was justified by the fact. Ingersoll, so talkative generally, maintained a studied silence, though urged by the press and by interviewers in a way that must have been annoying to him.
Two years after the appearance of the Notes, one of his disciples, urged by "multiple requests and challenges," published a "Reply to Rev. L. A. Lambert's Notes on Ingersoll."
From these "multiple requests" it is natural to infer that some response was considered necessary and that Mr. B. W. Lacy was the man competent to give it.
