I keep asking myself, Did I do all that could be done? Was there an argument that I did not bring forward to save that life? But I think-I am sure-that I did everything-and still I lost !
" Do you remember the Yu family next to the Drum Tower? Their Second Lady tried to commit suicide to-day by hanging herself ! It seems she could no longer endure the viperish tongue of her mother-in-law. They called me in and, mind you, I could have saved her! She had only just let go the rope when they found her-only just ! I prepared the remedies at once. Then in came the aged uncle, who is a wine merchant. Old Mr. Yu, you remember, is dead, and the wine merchant is the head of the family now. He came in blustering and angry and at once demanded that the old methods should be used. He sent for the priests to beat the gongs to call the woman's soul back, and her relatives gathered about and placed the poor unconscious girl-she is not twenty yet-into a kneeling position on the floor; then they deliberately filled her nose and mouth with cotton and cloth and bound clothing around her face!"
