Life Changers (More Twice-Born Men) : Narratives of a Recent Movement in the Spirit of Personal Religion (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Life Changers (More Twice-Born Men): Narratives of a Recent Movement in the Spirit of Personal Religion This doubt was uttered in no dismal or tragical man ner, but with a smile very boyish and agreeable, and in a tone which rather suggested that he looked forward to his first private talk with F. B. As little more than a curious experience. He smoked many cigarettes in a rather feverish fashion as he spoke to me of something on his mind, and I noticed that though the smile seldom left his face his hands trembled, while his eyes were seldom clear of the damp of secret tears. On the last night of the house-party F. B. Called this young soldier into his room just before ten o'clock. When the rest of us went up to bed towards midnight he was still there. Next morning as I was entering the dining room I felt my arm touched from behind, and, turning about, found this man closing up to my side, his pale face and suffering eyes lighted by a strange smile of boyish gladness and triumphant serenity, in spite of all the marks of a sleepless night and great spiritual strain which showed behind the brightness of his face like so many bruises.
