ET: Honor is tender. Against Mr. W.H. de Beaufort’s article in De Gids, “The meeting of deputies.”

Kuyper’s response, in the form of an open letter, to an article that W.H. de Beaufort (1845–1918) had published in De Gids 53 (= series 4, vol. 7), part 2, June 1889 (pp. [552]–560). De Beaufort had poked fun at Kuyper’s address to the Meeting of Deputies of the Anti-Revolutionary Electoral Associations (see 1889.07). In this response Kuyper contends that the article’s ironic treatment of the delegates, its tirades, its faulty presentation of many items, and its insinuations—including the insinuation that Kuyper was only out to gain power—could not be left without rebuttal. Honor is tender. A bold and well-documented reply was necessary according to Kuyper (p. 6) since “I do, in fact, like the ‘pepper and salt tray’ on the political table.”

De Beaufort answered him with Tegen Dr. A. Kuyper. Een woord van zelfverdediging en nadere toelichting (Amsterdam: P.N. van Kampen & Zoon, 1889). Kuyper then continued the polemical exchange (see 1889.13).
