Excerpt from Southern California Practitioner, 1907, Vol. 22
Lasting impressions are not made by long, ﬂat, chronic pressure, but by short, terse, apt sentences.
Many years ago two little boys of eight and ten were introduced in this way: Mrs. Russel, this is John and Willie Lawrence. Whatever these boys undertake has to go through. In a week the introducer had forgotten the introduction, but not so the boys. I have heard one of them (now a ma ture man) say that that introduction had been a motive power all through his life, and when he was opposed in his plans, or found difficulties in his way, the words of long ago would come to him: Whatever these boys undertake has to go through, and through it went.
