Infantile Paralysis and How I Overcame It – Strength Magazine – November, 1924

Seventy-four years ago I was just an ordinarily healthy baby. (1850 A.D.) At six months old I was partially paralyzed through lack of care. Had as much been known about’ this condition then as to-day, my limbs would probably have been straightened, and this story would never have been written. Just through some eccentricity of Fate it was not to be, and I have been badly handicapped for what most people consider a long span of life.
