Dear Mr. Hartmann,
That the world should seem to run away from us is a familiar sensation. I had it all through my younger days; but I was lucky in being able to return the compliment, and run away from the world. Now I am being treated more sympathetically, when I don’t need it; and I am glad to send you a little help in your difficulties. I hope you will send me your book on Baker Eddy, if you get it published.
