WHY HE DID NOT GO TO THE HOSPITAL

» My object in writing is two»fold ; to expres my gratitude for a great benefit, and to tell a short story which cannot fail to interest the feelings of many others. It is all about myself, but I have remarked that when a man tells the honest truth about himself he is all the , more likely to be of use to his fellow-creatures.
