Excerpt
Excerpt: Dear Maude, all the little two-oared boats which put out into the great ocean hare need of some chart which will show them how to set their course. Each starts full of happiness and confidence, and yet we know how many founder, for it is no easy voyage, and there are rocks and sand banks upon the way. So I give a few pages of your own private log, which tell of days of peace and days of storm such storms as seem very petty from the deck of a high ship, but are serious for the two-oared boats. If your peace should help another to peace, or your storm console another that is storm-tossed, then I know that you will feel repaid for this intrusion upon your privacy. May your entire voyage be like the outset, and when at last the oars fall from your hands, and those of Frank, may other loving ones be. Ready to take their turn of toil and so, bon voyage!
