TRUE! –nervous –very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad?
The disease had sharpened my senses –not destroyed –not dulled them.
Above all was the sense of hearing acute. I heard all things in the heaven and in the earth. I heard many things in hell.
How, then, am I mad?
Hearken! and observe how healthily –how calmly I can tell you the whole story.
