    “When I read the book, the biography famous,
    And is this then (said I) what the author calls a man’s life? 
    And so will some one when I am dead and gone write my life? 
    (As if any man really knew aught of my life!)
    Why even I myself, I often think, know little or nothing of my real
    Only a few hints—­a few diffused faint clues and indirections
    I seek ... to trace out here.”

    Walt Whitman.

For years I have contemplated telling this story, and for years I have put off telling it.  While I have delayed, my memory has not improved, and my recollections of the past are more hazy and fragmentary than when it first occurred to me that one day I might write them down.
