A somewhat shorter interview was published under the title "Irving and Hudson - Bram Stoker Tells What He Thinks About the Controversy" in The Boston Herald, Boston. This controversy was also briefly mentioned in the article "A Chat with Mr. Stoker About Irving" published in the New-York Daily Tribune, New York.
