This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1922 edition. Excerpt: ... new warmth and sympathy and compassion--all that seemed terribly far away and almost blotted out here.
