Excerpt: TO THE READER The papers which form this autobiography were originally published in The Outlook, the chapter telling of my going ?home to mother? in The Churchman, and parts of one or two others in The Century Magazine. To those who have been asking if they are made?up stories, let me say here that they are not. And I am mighty glad they are not. I would not have missed being in it all for anything.
