never sought high pecuniary reward for my labor, and have often ministered gratuitously. I can say with pride—and surely this may be pardoned—that during the long period of thirty-six years, I have not been as many days, certainly not as many weeks, off my duty, including periods of sickness. My interest in this matter has probably given a certain coloring to all that I have written, and I do not regret it.
And now, dear reader, before leading you to the threshold of my mortal life, permit me to say that, standing upon the threshold of my immortal life—at sixty-two years of age-I am still strong 'to labor,' and patient to wait for the coming of the hour which shall disclose the mystery of the Present, by unveiling the mystery of the Future.
