General Interest Article
Allow me to congratulate you on the completion of another year's successful and profitable work. Self-imposed scientific effort brings its own reward to every earnest soul in search of truth. The acquisition of new knowledge is both fascinating and stimulating. In proportion as we get knowledge at first hand, just in that proportion is the fascination and the stimulation increased, and our acquirements become a part of our being.
