Diary of a Suicide - By Wallace E. Baker - The body of a well-dressed young man was found off Manhattan Beach, Sept. 28th. In his pockets a torn photograph of Strindberg and receipts for three registered letters were found. These receipts were traced to Mr. Herts and to friends in Toronto, one of whom identified the body on Oct. 2d as that of Wallace E. Baker. Monday, March 11-Fine until middle of afternoon, then tired and nervously depressed. Night, cheerful again; bedtime, terribly nervous, depressed, wakeful, worried and despairing. Tuesday, March 12-Tired from previous night's depths of gloom; calm later, fair night. Wednesday, March 13-Calm and enthusiastic; tired, but not depressed, later restless in bed. Thursday, March 14-Quiet and calm, exhausted from previous flurries; later, storm again, very bad, and depths of morbid despair. Friday, March 15-Ambitious and determined-fine all day-restless night. The above pretty well represents my struggle for a long time, but through it all I have had a confidence in the final triumph and a constant return to my ideals and ambition, and I am noticing a gradual elimination of some weaknesses. The blue moods I am beginning to check before going- 17 - too far, and the ecstasy I am also holding in an endeavor to preserve a calm, ceaselessly persistent demeanor, neither too hot nor too cold. To-day I hope to be a model one, one of steady work, writing, studying, arranging papers; no time for self-consciousness, worrying or anything else. So far, from 6:25 to 8:25, it has been ideal.show more
