About six years ago I was compelled, by reason of nervous breakdown, to give up my legal studies and law office work, to both of which I was devoted. I was advised by the physician whom I consulted (one of the best in Edinburgh, Scotland) to try constant change of scene, which I did. This went on for about a year, when—no improvement being manifest in my condition—I was advised to try outdoor work. This advice was followed, and I spent my evenings in the pursuit of my favorite studies. The best in literature were my constant companions, my reading being deep and thoughtful rather than extensive; my favorite authors then occupying the place in my regard which the greatest of all books, the Bible and Science and Health, now hold.

My efforts at this time were rewarded in a degree, but as it seemed I would not be able to undertake office work again, I decided, about four years ago, to go to Canada. I did so, and engaged in farm work, quietly pursuing my studies in the very limited time at my disposal. Three winters ago, after a summer of hard work and the strenuous work of the threshing season, I went to stay with a friend who since early boyhood had been my bosom companion, remaining there the greater part of the winter, and in February, 1907, went down to Winnipeg to begin work in a law office. I found, however, I had not yet overcome my fears, and thought it wise not to go on with this work when I felt that eventually I would have to give it up.
