The War and After 1914-1919
The spring and summer of 1914 found Agnes Repplier in Europe, this time accompanied by a Philadelphia friend of long standing, Christine Platt. The travelers were warned to be careful where they went, but although they had no real difficulty--and certainly were not afraid of what might happen to them--before long they decided to come home. Jaunting now in Europe, even though it might be accomplished with little inconvenience, was scarcely the proper pursuit, they felt. Besides, as Miss Repplier said, William White was calling her, urging her return so that she might come to the assistance of those who were of the opinion that war in Europe is war in the Western Hemisphere as well.
Once home, the writer set to work with fine fury. She and White collaborated on a pamphlet titled Germany and Democracy, the Real Issue, the Views of Two Average Americans, a Reply to Doctor Dernburg. A year later Germany and Democracy was republished in England and was translated into French, German, and Dutch.
