Originally appeared serially as "The American Book of Wonder" in The Saturday Evening Post.

Writes Garrett,

Freedom as we know it is a condition of ego. Prosperity is a condition of things. Increase these satisfactions to any degree and there is still that knowledge of incompleteness which torments the spirit.
