Excerpt

Do you think you have had a fortunate life?" asked my wife after we had been discussing the passing of a friend. Since I have no fellowship with troubled souls who waste time and force in introspection, the interrogation was disconcerting. But as thought came of the lines wherein my lot had been cast -- of surroundings of boyhood, of the joy experienced in my own home, and in newspaper work long sustained; of the friends made, and of the city wherein I had lived and toiled; above all, of the interesting people with whom I had come in contact, and the public events observed at close range and often with intimate knowledge of them -- as all these considerations passed in panoramic survey, there seemed to be but one reply to make to the challenging question.

As not before apprehended came the conviction that more of the fullness of life had come to me than. falls to most persons. Education comes through experience, and my experiences, while intensive - in that I had been allied with only one stated calling -- had been broadly manifold, insomuch as newspaper work touches men and events at all points.
