Previous Section   254. HONESTY'S MISCALCULATION   Next Section

Honesty's Miscalculation.  Our newest acquaintances are sometimes the first to learn what we have hitherto kept dark.  We have the foolish notion that our proof of confidence is the strongest fetter wherewith to hold them fast.  But they do not know enough about us to feel so strongly the sacrifice involved in our speaking out, and betray our secrets to others without any idea of betrayal.  Hereby we possibly lose our old friends.
