Example text

Father stood up, the rest of the congregation followed. Brother Timberly asked Lord God Jehovah to lead us in this time of peril. He asked Divine guidance for President McKinley. He asked the Lord's help for all our brave men on land and sea who now must fight for the preservation of this sacred, God-given land. He asked mercy for the souls of those who would fall in battle, and consolation and help in drying the tears of widows and orphans and of the fathers and mothers of our young heroes destined to die in battle.

Smart. Besides cooking, I endeavoured to straighten out Father's accounts receivable, with less success. After consulting with Father 1 sent out some polite and friendly dunning letters. Have you ever written over one hundred letters, one after another, by hand? I found out why Mr Clemens had grabbed the first opportunity to shift from pen to typewriter – first author to do so. txt In going over Dr Johnson's books I find that your account stands at umpteen dollars and that you have made no payment on it since March 1896.

I awaited his response with anticipated relief. ' `No. But it will do some good. ' Father was right. That second mailing brought in no money. It fetched a number of highly indignant replies; some of them scurrilous. Father had me file each with its appropriate case record, but make no reply. Most of those seventy patients never showed up again. This was the good result Father expected. He was cheerful about it. 'Maureen, it's a standoff; they don't pay me and I don't do them much good. Iodine, calomel, and Aspirin – that's about all we have today that isn't a sugar pill.
