A PRINCE OF NEUROTICS : AELIUS ARISTIDES

out of all relation to the time of year or my physical strength. The army postal service never passed me on the way. I used to hunt up guides in person, when they were needed, and even that was none of the easiest. They evaded one like savages, and I had to drag them along, sometimes by persuasion, sometimes even by force. All this increased my illness. My teeth were absolutely reduced to a condition in which I held my hands beneath them, expecting them to fall out, and I was unable to take any food except milk.

Next in the Straits we drove and drifted to and fro. Two nights and a day saw us across the Adriatic, the tide carrying us noiselessly along. When we had to make Cephallenia, a heavy swell got up again, the wind dropped, and we drifted up and down. Utter physical weariness and exhaustion. What happened in the Aegean is indescribable ; our good
