The Word Magazine


The Word Magazine Moments with Friends

“Moments with Friends” is a Q & A feature of The Word magazine. Between 1906 and 1916, the questions listed below were posed by readers of The Word and answered by Mr. Percival under the appellation “A FRIEND.” With the passage of time, we have decided to place his name as author of the answers. To preserve historical authenticity, any typographical errors have been retained along with the punctuation usage popular during that time.

In 1986, The Word Foundation created a quarterly version of The Word magazine that is still in publication. It also features a “Moments with Friends” section that includes questions posed by our readers.
