In his "wicked article" which appeared in the Daily Morning Call on September 6 under the title " A Small Piece of Spite " Clemens called the undertaker and his staff "underlings at the coffin-shop" and "forty-dollar understrappers." Four days after Twain's "A Small Piece of Spite" appeared, Coroner Benjamin A. Sheldon, who had a branch office in Massey's undertaking establishment died. His replacement Dr. Stephen R. Harris who Clemens supported for the position, ended the arrangement with undertaker Atkins Massey.
The other primary method that was used was direct interview with identified clients. Interview however had fewer questions than the questionnaire but answers were more detailed because the interviewer could use various skills to identify if the person they are interviewing has answered the question correctly (Seale, 2004, pp 165). Wherever a mistake was realized, the interviewer would immediately devise ways that would ensure the question is correctly answered. The method however has some limitations, these includes; the exercise itself being too involving and sometimes affected by language barrier or handling illiterate clients. The interviewer was also expected to avail himself to the client unlike the use of questionnaire where it would just be sent to trusted clients. Few interviews were however carried out because they were just meant to supplement the questionnaire. Data collected was then analyzed and relevant results recorded (Seale, 2004, pp 170).

The question is how a region that once yearned for modernity could reject it so dramatically. In the Middle Ages the Arabs studied Aristotle (when he was long forgotten in the West) and invented algebra. In the 19th century, when the West set ashore in Arab lands, in the form of Napoleon's conquest of Egypt, the locals were fascinated by this powerful civilization. In fact, as the historian Albert Hourani has documented, the 19th century saw European-inspired liberal political and social thought flourish in the Middle East.
