Excerpt from The Journal of the Kansas Medical Society, 1909, Vol. 9
White City he is building. The son said: Father wanted you to go in that scheme with him. Did you invest? Well, no, I did not, but, he talks lucidly and brilliantly. He is sane I say; if anyone is insane, you are, for even making such an accusation against him.
Now, that is it, he knows things, knows what he wishes to do, but at the same time the ventures he was contemplating were too risky for the adviser's money, yet he could see nothing insane in the man wishing to invest a fortune in the undertaking, knowing at the same time the kind of talk he was indulging in about the poisoning, enmity of family, and so forth. The man was sane, he said, be cause he could talk brightly, even if he did go about accusing lis family and physician of putting poison in his food, going through large stores, as well as, on the streets, denouncing his poor, faithful old wife as a prostitute, and applying all sorts of epithets against her, shouting that his sons were yellow dogs, bastards, and ordering them from their home, all this he says is sane! And what he says, the world at large is saying every day in relation to other cases just as well marked.
