My life however has been so smooth & regular & reasonable, so free from blundering exciting adventures the story seems hardly worth while in the midst of so much that is infinitely more important. Still if I should live long enough I may be tempted to try it for I begin to see that such a book would offer fair opportunities here & there to say a good word for God.
