Once you begin watching spiders, you haven’t time for much else — the world is really loaded with them. I do not find them repulsive or revolting, any more than I find anything in nature repulsive or revolting, and I think it is too bad that children are often corrupted by their elders in this hate campaign.
E. B. White’s drawings of the vectors of the web-spinning process from his manuscripts for Charlotte’s Web, published on October 15, 1952.
