Jacob A. Riis (18491914). The Battle with the Slum. 1902.
before I close this account of the struggle with evil, show you also its good heart by telling you the unnecessary story of Mrs. Ben Wah and her parrot. Perchance it may help you to grasp better the meaning of the Battle with the Slum. It is for such as she and for such as Jim, whose story I told before, that we are fighting.
