"Not many years ago a fine scholar and writer of ghost stories, now deceased, stated in an introduction to the Books of Tobit and Susanna,
which I had been asked to illustrate, that the latter had throughout the centuries 'supplied artists of prurient minds with a subject'.
I was disturbed at a man of great attainment holding such a foolish view, and the publisher, my old friend Ernest Halton,
at my request drew his blue pencil through the passage. I strongly repudiate the notion that artists have prurient minds.
I go further and submit that, by and large, artists, especially figure painters, are less prurient minded than other men."
