Excerpt from Across the Continent: Letters Written to the Church Advocate During the Summer of 1879
As I may never have another opportunity of communicating with you, dear reader, I want to take you into my confidence and tell you a secret. I have longed to write a book. Inde... ed it has been the ambition of my life, haunting me like a horrible nightmare. I have not done so for several reasons. It was not for want of time, for I had all the time there is - twenty-four hours in every day, and where is the person who has more? Neither was it from fear of the book reviewers, for only a few persons read what they say, and soon forget it. You may, then, wonder why I did not write it. I'll tell you. A lack of ability alone prevented me from fulfilling a long cherished desire, as it doubtless has many others. I was conscious, too, that it would be difficult to find a publisher willing to assume the risk of its publication, or persons credulous enough to purchase the book. Do you wonder any longer?
