Thanks for the caveat. There is no acceptable level of white supremacy.

Texbirders:





One trigger warning on the article. Florence is what I in 2020 would easily call racist in her descriptions of the people in the border region. Best to enjoy her colorful bird and flower descriptions and realize that her unfortunate attitude towards people was presumably regrettably typical for 1900.
