The Heart That Worries You to Death – Strength Magazine – March, 1928

A certain type of man runs a short distance to catch a train or trolley car. While he runs his mind holds but two thoughts-of catching the train, and of his heart. Whether he catches the train or not he fetches up all out of breath and blames it on his heart, and he worries continually how long a heart like his can hold out. Maybe he goes to a doctor after a period of mental suffering or he may be afraid to go and continue to suffer.
