The things which I have to do today,
for It Is early morning a I aiu writing
are very common
place things, and
tor the most part

a soon as break

half dozen people
on a rather dis

drive fifty mile
to make a speech.
It Is raining, and
I know that the drive will be rather a
dull one, and even when condition
are favorable 1 hnr never had any
enthusiasm for speech making. I nev
er feel slighted If it any gathering 1
am not called upon to speak.
I am balanced enough, however,
and I have had enough experience to
realize that It 1 the task In band
which for me Is the really Important
thing In IJTe, as It Is for yon. I must
meet very disagreeable people ahj
settle their difficulties as well as Is
In my power. 1 must make my speech
with as much force and magnetism
and directness of application as I can.
If the rain comes down on the way,
still I am dry and comfortable within
and the fields between which 1 pass
as I drive along are greener - and
fresher because of the rain. It Is a
lesson which we might all well learn
that the task In hand, stupid and
uninteresting os It may often seem.
Is for each of ns the most Important
tiling to be done well, and helps al
ways In the satisfactory accomplish

shall enjoy my vacation better and
with a lighter heart from having
done well what Is before me today.
