Ita€™s worth taking a moment to examine what Edgar said in that paper, to the American Academy of Political and Social Sciences in Philadelphia that April, because it encompassed not only his professional position but his personal philosophy.
His talk discussed free tradea€™s benefits for the American standard of living, and the pernicious effect that economic nationalism after the World War had on America and other nations. This was economics and business, but more than those were on Edgara€™s mind as he addressed the domestic welfare. Edgar believed that a€?the right to buy and sell freely is a right that all nations would welcome, and [that] there is not one among them that would not choose this peaceful method of raising their living standards rather than the suicidal method of attempted conquest.a€? In light of the next ten years, this could be regarded as excessive economic determinism.
When later World War II was underway, this philosophy would inform a critical study done by Edgar and his office for GMa€™s Chairman of the Board, Alfred Sloan, as GM began to look beyond the war to the new and different world being created. Perhaps Edgara€™s humble origins made him more sympathetic than many corporation men to the plight of people being thrown out of work or seeing their salaries drastically cut.
Roosevelta€™s inauguration in 1933 spelled no quick end to the Depression, though, and conditions at home made Export Company business more important to GM than ever. But Edgara€™s work in town was demanding, and overseas conditions were growing ever bleaker. That he was actually not so sure of that privately, however, is suggested by a second action of his at this time. In short, the increasingly disturbing world scene was on Edgara€™s mind at work and at home. Yet he had never heard of the Baker Street Irregulars, and whata€™s more, he was some time learning about them now.
Edgara€™s ardor for the Holmesiana he had discovered in Starretta€™s Private Life had not cooled in the meantime. There is one more point of biographical interest about these early letters between Edgar and Vincent Starrett, though we must not make too much of it without further data. Several years would pass before the BSI met again, and before Smith and the Baker Street Irregulars got to know each other. 1937 had been a big year for General Motors Export Company, not least because the Opel works it owned had grown from producing 26,000 units a year to 128,000, holding over forty percent of the German market now, and exporting automobiles as well.
Osborna€™s grip on the helm was being increasingly challenged by a German executive at Opel, Rudolf Fleischer. As Edgara€™s office watched the crisis reach its peak in the spring of 1938, Graeme Howard, the GM manager for Europe, was directed to abort a trip to India and hurry to Opela€™s executive offices in Germany instead.
In the late 1990s, these and other issues led to accusations of GM sympathy for, and collaboration with, the Nazi regime.
But Blacka€™s charges against GM and others were taken up by an uncritical press, and class-action lawyers scenting profit whether the charges were true or not.
The Opel crisis upset GM not least because Herr Doktor of Laws Fleischer was no unknown quantity to Jim Mooney or Edgar. Difficult as conditions are in this country, however, my work abroad brings me in contact with such utterly distasteful and discouraging things that I still think our hope for the preservation of democracy here, and for the restoration at least in part of the world we used to know, lies in the compromises and reforms that Mr.
Seriously, I believe a freer exchange of goods and services among nations, including our own, would go far toward eliminating some of the strangeness in the things around us. What some of the a€?utterly distasteful and discouraging things abroada€? Edgara€™s work brought him into contact with are made clear by Professor Turnera€™s book. To fend off the creeping Nazi assault on its management and ownership (and to keep one of Opela€™s models in the running for the Volkswagen Hitler wanted for the masses), GM sought allies in what seemed the non-Nazi institution of Germanya€™s armed forces.
Edgara€™s reaction to this thought is not on record, but he would hardly have seen things that way. 4 The following month, Edgar, this time on behalf of the Automobile Manufacturers Association, conveyed the same message to a joint committee of five New York City Republican Party organizations, urging a free-trade plank in the GOPa€™s 1936 election platform.

Anne initially trained as a nurse and worked in oncology for 10 years where she supported patients and their families through the trauma of the diagnoses, treatment and the terminal care. At the end of 1928 he purchased a second house nearby for his parents, at 42 Southern Slope Drive. In addressing barriers to free trade, he focused primarily on the domestic welfare of his talka€™s title. He examined the problem of agricultural surpluses, and the positive role they could play in a free-trade system. But he was not blind to political nationalism, and the violence of revolutionary ideology; he had seen both in Europe. Edgar championed free trade with not only idealistic principles but hard economic analysis, for example in a a€?Results of Depreciationa€? letter to the New York Times that was lengthier and more insightful than the newspapera€™s editorial prompting it. In Asia, a militaristic Japan occupying Manchuria withdrew from the League of Nations in 1933, harbinger of more aggression to come.
He created Pamphlet House, a private press for items he felt important to circulate further; and its first act was to reprint an essay by the historian Hendrik van Loon, A World Divided Is a World Lost. For relaxation we know that he played tennis avidly, and James Morris said he also liked to build small elegant stone walls with his hands.
Starrett was in China when Edgara€™s letter arrived in Chicago, and it was nearly a year before Starrett came home to find it a€” and over a year before Starrett finally managed to answer it at length. Their enthusiastic correspondence that followed is in Irregular Memories of the a€™Thirties. In Edgara€™s letter to him dated December 7, 1937, there is a suggestion that even before he learned of the BSI, he had been holding forth locally since reading The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes.
But in no time at all after that, Smith was increasingly their leader, eventually eclipsing Christopher Morley the BSIa€™s Gasogene but without harming the close friendship established between the two men. 1938 was a big year too, and not only because GM Export became the grander-sounding GM Overseas Operations: 1938 opened with a bitter struggle over control of Opel, for which GM had paid $33,300,000 in 1929. While not necessarily a Nazi himself, Fleischer was using ties to the Nazi Party in the region and in Berlin to marginalize American authority inside and outside the plant. Howard was forty-two years old, a Los Angeles native who bore a certain resemblance to Dashiell Hammett, and a graduate of Stanford University and Harvard Business School. GM was not alone in being so charged: Ford, IBM, and other major companies were accused as well. Fleischer had worked several years in GM Exporta€™s New York offices starting in 1925, the year that Edgar returned from his overseas stint. It saw no way in any event to reject doing defense business with the new regime, and tried instead to obtain some advantage from what seemed inevitable. Two years later Rudolf Fleischera€™s grab for power gave Howard cause to rethink things, but by then GMa€™s freedom of maneuver in the German police state was growing smaller and smaller. While being held under house arrest there, Paul received a visitor named Onesimus, whose name meant profitable or advantage.
During that time she has written over two hundred books, software packages and TV programmes about primary literacy, and worked as a consultant for the Department for Education, the National Literacy Trust, the Basic Skills Agency, many educational publishers and the BBC.

Naively I thought that with a small bit of advertising the site would take off but this is harder work than I ever imagined! His father, now sixty-nine, had gone from hatter to clerk, from clerk to book-keeper at Underwood Typewriter, and from that to the National Foreign Trade Council in New York, until far past the usual retirement age Edgar S.


He did not lose his job like so many others in the early 1930s, but Peter Spivak pictured him a€?walking through the streets of New York seeing the apple sellers, some of whom he had known in another time and another way.a€? Many men in Big Business supported Herbert Hoovera€™s belt-tightening response to the crisis, and high protective tariffs like the Smoot-Hawley Act of 1930. He debunked, logically and statistically, with an excellent grasp of economic fundamentals, the belief that employment is harmed by free trade.
He warned that denial of free trade would lead to regimentation of industry and agriculture at home.
Roosevelt started his run for the Presidency in 1932, he called for a a€?new deala€? for the American people. In 1933 Edgar was appointed a vice president of the GM Export Company, and also a director of the American Manufacturing Export Association alongside World War flying ace Eddie Rickenbacker, a household name now president of North American Aviation.
Edgar also had the habit of reading into the early hours of the morning, constantly expanding his horizons, and enjoying literature.
It prompted Edgar to start collecting, under Starretta€™s guidance, the other canonical scholarship existing at the time a€” that of T. Ostensibly intimidated more than he probably was by learning of the Baker Street Irregulars, he told Starrett that it had a€?confirmed me in my desire to win a place among the Irregulars.
Fleischera€™s continued assaults on Osborna€™s role persisted until it became a firing matter, something that GMa€™s hierarchy and Osborn himself feared could precipitate an outright takeover of Opel by Berlin. He had studied in Germany as a young man, then commanded a machine-gun company in the war against Germany before going to work for General Motors in 1920. In GMa€™s case, leading the charge was a techno-thriller writer named Edwin Black, whoa€™d already published a book accusing IBM of assisting Nazi Germany to carry out the Holocaust.
Those companies and others had done business with Germany in the 1930s, and no doubt had done things they came to regret while attempting to hold onto their interests against usurpation by the Nazi Party or opportunists like Rudolf Fleischer. They had been colleagues before Fleischer returned to Germany, and were once more after Fleischer joined Opel in 1929. As early as 1933, the year Hitler became Chancellor and FA?hrer of the Third Reich, Nazi representatives took control of the factory council representing Opel workers, and the RA?sselsheim plant became the scene of Nazi rallies and mandatory political exhortations of the workforce, with loudspeakers throughout the plant carrying Hitlera€™s speeches during the workday. This included manufacture at its Brandenburg plant of the German Armya€™s a€?Blitz truck,a€? while producing components for the Junkers aircraft company as a sub-contractor. The session was chaired by Republican lawyer Allen Dulles, brother of his partya€™s leading foreign policy expert and a future Secretary of State, John Foster Dulles a€” and himself a future wartime OSS chieftain and a postwar CIA official, eventually the CIAa€™s Director. By means of therapeutic music, we can assist these children to come to maturity in many ways. At the heart of WithScotland is the principle of improving outcomes for children in need of care and protection and adults at risk of harm by working in partnership and facilitating access to expertise across Scotland. He has presented written and oral evidence to parliamentary enquiries related to the public use of ICT and is widely published in the area. This presents a new take on how we define bullying and where responses must focus to be effective.
Two years later she became a sessional supervisor and following this her hours have been increased to cover a maternity leave.
Sixteen years later, when Edgar and Elmer Davis called upon President Harry Truman at the White House to present him with a copy of the BSI, Inc. That alone was of tremendous concern to Edgar and his colleagues, for the largest GM holding outside the United States happened to be the Opel works in Germany.
But he included a somber note: a€?There are just two things that can stop this trend that is underway. And one day in 1936, perhaps for his birthday, his wife gave him a book she apparently had reason to believe that he would enjoy: The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes, by a Chicago newspaperman named Vincent Starrett.
To summarize here: on October 15th Edgar wrote to Starrett (on GM Export Company stationery) a lengthy letter that not only lavishly praised the book, but presented a theory of Edgara€™s own about the date that Sherlock Holmes and Dr. The Opel family remained involved in it with members of the family on its now bi-national board of directors, and to the outside world Opel still appeared a German company despite GM ownership and a GM man, Cyrus Osborn, at its helm there in RA?sselsheim. An able and accomplished negotiator, his career was devoted to GMa€™s overseas interests, and he had the confidence of Edgara€™s superior Jim Mooney in New York. Chiming in from another angle a€” that GM had also set out deliberately to destroy Americaa€™s urban public transit after the war a€” was a House of Representatives staffer named Bradford Snell. In the end, to defend their records, some companies threw open their archives to eminent historians, with free rein to investigate and report.
While Graeme Howard on the scene carried the burden for GMa€™s hanging onto Opel, Edgar, as Jim Mooneya€™s right-hand man in New York, found himself involved in a personal way. Opela€™s management was pressed to stop employing Jews or doing business with Jewish firms.
Not Dullesa€™s and Edgara€™s first meeting, though: Dulles had also been a presenter at the previous montha€™s American Academy of Political and Social Sciences in Philadelphia.
In recent years he has specialised in the use of ICTs by children and young people, carrying out a large amount of grass roots research on issues such as their attitudes toward privacy and data protection, file sharing and internet safety.
He has also conducted research into young people’s experiences of cyberbullying and their online behavior. Kibooku was the subject of a very successful debate in the Scottish Parliament and we were credited for our site and what we are trying to do.
Edgar believed in free trade, and helped found the World Trade League in 1932 in order to campaign for monetary and tariff standards promoting it.
Once on the spot, he took over the struggle with Fleischer and his Nazi allies, and after a few months of nerve-wracking machinations managed to preserve GM control of Opela€™s management and board a€” for the time being. In GMa€™s case it was Henry Ashby Turner, Jr., professor emeritus of history at Yale and author of German Big Business and the Rise of Hitler. No doubt Edgar wanted GM to prevail as much as Howard and Mooney did, but how he felt personally is suggested in a April 16, 1938 letter to Vincent Starrett in the middle of the Opel struggle.
In 1937, the Nazi Party succeeded in installing an SS reserve officer as the planta€™s security chief, and an informer system throughout the workforce quickly followed. It was a huge affair and Smith wrote the Declarations for the convention while Beverly and I typed our fingers to the bone. When Onesimus ran away, he probably took with him money and goods which belonged to his master Philemon. He is a research partner with the UK Safer Internet Centre and is a frequent media commentator on children and the Internet. We continue to raise awareness of safe social networking and will keep trying to do so until the site is a major success and our kids are in a safe environment on the internet”. I liked the feel of the day, it was relaxed and the chance to mingle with others was helpful, not only during the group discussion but also in the market place. And he also argued for it publicly in his essay a€?Foreign Trade and the Domestic Welfarea€? in the July 1936 Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Sciences. But if Elmer Davis exaggerated a trifle, he was not wrong about Edgara€™s sympathies and political alignment.
The other is an exaggerated monetary disturbance, manifesting itself either in wild inflation or equally wild deflation.
And Turnera€™s resulting General Motors and the Nazis: The Struggle for Control of Opel, Europea€™s Biggest Carmaker, published by Yale University Press in 2005, made Edwin Blacka€™s charges look flimsy.
It has been used with persons, of all ages from preschool to late adulthood and with many types of disabilities whether congenital or adventitious.
Hilton, and Snell was humiliated when Professor Hilton testified before Congress that Snell had egregiously distorted his work in a deeply dishonest way.
In the late 1940s, George Hilton had been an undergraduate at the University of Chicago, and a co-founder of the BSI scion society The Coptic Patriarchs.
Because music is reinforcing, it can be used to motivate movements or structure exercises which are prescribed in physical rehabilitation.
It launched, during his busiest years at GM, a long period of scholarly research and writing unimaginable in terms of modern-day BSI leadership.
Through movement to music and dance routines, movements may become more controlled, fluid and purposeful.
Live music offers increased flexibility and adaptability to match and guide physical movements elicited by the client. Musical instruments may be used to work on range of motion, handgrasp strength, and non-verbal self-expression. Paul, however, honored the social tie that bound a slave to his master and respected the duty Onesimus owed to Philemon, his master. These instruments are often adapted to fit the specific physical capabilities of each client. Guided by the tenth commandment, which forbids coveting another man's worker, and by the law of love, Paul decided Onesimus should return to Philemon.
The use of computer-aided and electronic musical equipment also allows severely physically disabled clients to reach their fullest creative potential. Paul was about to send Tychicus, a co-worker, to Colosse with a letter Paul had written to the church there. The act of singing may assist in the maintenance and improvement of oral motor skills and pulmonary functioning. Singing provides opportunities to improve breath-control, rate of speech, articulation and pronunciation skills. Tychicus' traveling to Colosse offered Paul the opportunity to send Onesimus with Tychicus to Philemon. Onesimus went willingly as a penitent Christian to seek his master's forgiveness and to return to his service in Philemon's household. Discussion of lyrics and songwriting may provide opportunities to discuss and share personal thoughts and experiences. Music therapy can increase an individual's level of independence, and enhance feelings of self-confidence, self-worth and self-esteem. Rather, Paul commended Philemon for the loving compassion he showed to his fellow Christians and then interceded in Onesimus' behalf. Facilitate relaxationRelaxation is an important component in achieving increased range of motion and flexibility.
Slaves, such as Onesimus, who were brought back to their masters were often treated most harshly and under Roman law could be killed. Sedative music has been show to enhance EMG biofeedback relaxation training when compared to EMG biofeedback relaxation training alone for persons. Paul noted that Philemon was having Onesimus come back to him as more than a slave but as a brother in Christ and fellow believer.
Music experiences that can promote relaxation include listening to carefully chosen music, instrumental improvisation and music-assisted relaxation exercises. Since it was quite possible that Onesimus had wronged Philemon and was indebted to Philemon for what he had stolen, Paul even offered to have Philemon charge the debt to him so that Paul might repay him. In offering to repay Philemon for Onesimus' indebtedness, Paul reminded Philemon that he owed him his very life, for it appears that in some way as a result of Paul's gospel ministry Philemon had become a believer in Christ the Savior.
Although most people may find sedative music effective in achieving a relaxed state, this may not be true in all cases.
In the course of his letter Paul hinted that he would very much like to have Onesimus back with him in Rome. The music therapist is able to recognize and monitor the effects of the presented music on the individual.


Increase motor coordinationMotor coordination can be improved through many musical experiences. The use of selected instruments can improve range of motion as well as fine and gross motor skills through strategically, placing instruments around the individual or using instruments that require the use of specific muscle groups or, body parts. Eye hand coordination can also be improved through the use of instruments that require increased precision in physical motion. The use of rhythmic auditory stimuli has been shown to increase independent, even control of ambulation in individuals with uneven or arrhythmic gait patterns and to facilate temporal and quantitative muscular control in children with gross motor dysfunction.3. Reinforce and provide motivation for physical exerciseThe use of music in therapy provides a positive and enjoyable atmosphere for persons with physical disabilities to experience success.
Through providing live background music, adaptability and flexibility is maintained so that the music therapist can more easily match the individual's motions in tempo, style and rhythm.
Music can help provide distraction and diversion from exercises that may be difficult for the individual, provide motivation to maintain participation and make a regular exercise routine seem less tedious.4.
Foster independence, self-confidence- and self-esteemAs physical abilities improve, and persons have increased opportunities to practice and acquire new skills and abilities, independence can be fostered and self-confidence and self-esteem enhanced. A positive self-image and self-concept can be developed through music therapy interventions and music therapy activities can be adapted according to the individual's needs and capabilities. Develop functional speech and communication abilitiesSinging and speech have many commonalities.
An automobile may be filled with enough fuel to drive a long distance, but it wona€™tA go anywhere until someone puts the key into the ignition and then turns the key. The use of vocal exercises used in singing can enhance oral motor skills such as articulation, breath control, and vocal intensity. Through manipulating tempo and rhythm, clarity of speech can be enhanced and the rate of speech can be modified to provide increased communication abilities for the individual. Melodic intonation therapy involves the sung intonation of propositional sentences in such a way that the intoned pattern is similar to the natural prosodic pattern of a sentence when it is spoken. This technique has been shown to be effective in improving word-morpheme performance levels, sentence lengths, articulation skills and intelligibility for language delayed apraxic children and has been an effective treatment for some persons with severe aphasia .
Music has also been effective as a stimulus to promote spontaneous speech with physically challenged children and to promote non-verbal communication through bliss symbols or sign language.6. Motivate interaction with othersPersons with physical disabilities may encounter decreased opportunities and motivation for social interaction. Music therapy can provide opportunities to interact with peers through a shared experience.
Group ensembles provide opportunities to develop peer relationships, develop social interaction skills and provide opportunities for cooperation and working together as a group toward a common goal. Even though Goda€™s Word says I have a sound mind, I continually feelA like I dona€™t have control of my thought life. Group music therapy sessions can also provide opportunities to share personal experiences with others and provide a means and an outlet for appropriate self-expression. Music therapy and children with autism Music Therapy is particularly useful with autistic children owing in part to the nonverbal, non threatening nature of the medium. And in spite of the fact the Bible says God has blessedA me with gifts and talents, I feel like a dope who has nothing to offer to this world. Parallel music activities are designed to support the objectives of the child as observed by the therapist or as indicated by a parent, teacher or other professional. A music therapist might observe, for instance, the child's need to socially interact with others.
But for that potential in you to be released, you have to hold the right key in yourA hand.A Furthermore, it isna€™t enough for you to just possess the key.
Musical games like passing a ball back and forth to music or playing sticks and cymbals with another person might be used to foster this interaction. You have to put that key into theA a€?ignitiona€? and turn it so the latent potential that resides inside you will be ignited. Eye contact might be encouraged with imitative clapping games near the eyes or with activities which focus attention on an instrument played near the face.
Preferred music may be used contingently for a wide variety of cooperative social behaviors like sitting in a chair or staying with a group of other children in a circle. Music Therapy is particularly effective in the development and remediation of speech. The severe deficit in communication observed among autistic children includes expressive speech which may be nonexistent or impersonal. This is a person so sure of his information that when he speaks, he does so with confidence and boldness.
Speech can range from complete mutism to grunts, cries, explosive shrieks, guttural sounds, and humming. There may be musically intoned vocalizations with some consonant-vowel combinations, a sophisticated babbling interspersed with vaguely recognizable word-like sounds, or a seemingly foreign sounding jargon.
Higher level autistic speech may involve echolalia, delayed echolalia or pronominal reversal, while some children may progress to appropriate phrases, sentences, and longer sentences with non expressive or monotonic speech. Since autistic children are often mainstreamed into music classes in the public schools, a music teacher may experience the rewards of having an autistic child involved in music activities while assisting with language.It has been often noted that autistic children evidence unusual sensitivities to music. Some have perfect pitch, while many have been noted to play instruments with exceptional musicality. Music therapists traditionally work with autistic children because of this unusual responsiveness which is adaptable to non-music goals Some children have unusual sensitivities only to certain sounds.
One boy, after playing a xylophone bar, would spontaneously sing up the harmonic series from the fundamental pitch. Through careful structuring, syllable sounds were paired with his singing of the harmonics and the boy began incorporating consonant-vowel sounds into his vocal play. Soon simple 2-3 note tunes were played on the xylophone by the therapist who modeled more complex verbalizations, and the child gradually began imitating them.Since autistic children sometimes sing when they may not speak, music therapists and music educators can work systematically on speech through vocal music activities.
In the music classroom, songs with simple words, repetitive phrases, and even repetitive nonsense syllables can assist the autistic child's language.
Meaningful word phrases and songs presented with visual and tactile cues can facilitate this process even further. You should study, read, listen to teaching material a€” inA other words, you should use every available resource to discover what Goda€™s Word says youa€™ve beenA given in Jesus Christ. Parents and teachers alike can assist the child in remembering these prosodic features of speech by prompting the child with the song.While composing specialized songs is time consuming for the teacher with a classroom full of other children, it should be remembered that the repertoire of elementary songs are generally repetitive in nature. Even in higher level elementary vocal method books, repetition of simple phrases is common.
While the words in such books may not seem critical for the autistic child's survival at the moment, simply increasing the capacity to put words together is a vitally important beginning for these children.For those teachers whose time is limited to large groups, almost all singing experiences are invaluable to the autistic child when songs are presented slowly, clearly, and with careful focusing of the child's attention to the ongoing activity.
To hear an autistic child leave a class quietly singing a song with all the words is a pleasant occurrence. The moment you open your mouth and start confessing the good things that are in you by Jesus Christ, a supernatural connection is made between your faith and allA that Jesus has deposited inside you. To hear the same child attempt to use these words in conversation outside of the music class is to have made a very special contribution to the language potential of this child. At that moment, the gifts and treasures God has placed insideA you become supernaturally activated. Music is effective because it is a nonverbal form of communication, it is a natural reinforcer, it is immediate in time, provides motivation for practicing nonmusical skills, and is successful because almost everyone responds positively to at least some kind of music. Music therapists work in a variety of settings, including medicine, rehabilitation, psychiatric care, special education, correctional facilities, state schools, community-based health care, and private practice.
Instead of speaking what God says about them, they ridicule themselves, put themselves down, and speak badly of themselves.
For example, the therapist and client might compose songs for the purpose of expression of feelings; one client might learn to play the piano for the purpose of improving fine motor skills, while another client might use instruments to improvise unspoken emotions. By acknowledging the basic truths of what you have been given in Jesus, you will release so much divine energy that it will radically transform your life. Following coursework, students complete a six-month full time clinical internship and a written board certification exam. When I hear my own words, even I can tell ita€™s wrong for me to speak so lowly about myself.
Forgive me for speaking so wrongly and for allowing myself to remain imprisoned in self-defeat.
I am truly repentant for theseactions, and I ask You to forgive me and to give me the power to change my behavior. I agree with all that Goda€™s Word declares me to be, and I speak these truths about myself.
Every dayA Iam getting more positive and more faith-filled, and my mouth is speaking what God says about me. Do you speak well of yourself, or do you find that you constantly criticize yourself and continually point out all your flaws? If you were to ask your friends what they hear you saying about yourself, would they say you speak positively or negatively?A 2.
What changes do you need to make in your life in order to change your confessions about yourself?
Music therapy can increase an individual's level of independence, and enhance feelings of self-confidence, self-worth and self-esteem. Guided by the tenth commandment, which forbids coveting another man's worker, and by the law of love, Paul decided Onesimus should return to Philemon.
Tychicus' traveling to Colosse offered Paul the opportunity to send Onesimus with Tychicus to Philemon.
