A Frank Confession

FOR some months it has been borne in upon me that I ought to make a confession. They say it is good for the soul.

I was born and raised a Jew. My father was an orthodox of the old school, strict in his observance of the Mosaic code. He is now, at the age of three score and ten, one of the most earnest of Christian Scientists, through having been healed of a very serious case of hernia and sciatic rheumatism.

Before I was of age I had become a most pronounced infidel. I was a great admirer of Thomas Paine, Voltaire, Spinoza, etc., and believed as they did. In later years I became an agnostic.
