'Yes, in less than an hour, coward as I am, I shall have deserted
my duty and my family in this world; and, wretch as I am, shall
have rushed into all the horrors of hell in another world, by
drowning myself.

'By curiosity I was first led to the E O table. Ashamed to stand
idle I put upon E, it came E; upon O, it came O. Fortune
favoured me (as I foolishly called it), and I came away a winner.

Something worse than curiosity, though hardly more dangerous,
carried me to another table another night. My view in going was
answered. My view was to WIN, and again I WON in the course of
the evening. Again I went, and again I won. For some weeks this
was the constant story. Oh, happy had I lost at first! Now I
went every night. Everything I ought to have done, neglected.
Up all night, I was forced to lie in bed all day. The strength
of my mind, which at THIS moment might save me, was hourly
wasting away. My wife was deceived with continual falsehoods, to
which nothing but her fondness for me blinded her. Even my
winnings, with the expense and extravagance in which I indulged
myself and family, were every day more than half exhausted. But
I felt that I was always to win. Fortune favoured me. Fortune
was now my deity. * * * *
