Correspondence from Charlotte Perkins Gilman to Martha Allen Luther Lane, July 8, 15, 1885
Gilman, Charlotte Perkins, 1860-1935 (Author)Lane, Martha Luther, 1862-1948 (Addressee)
From Wayland Street, Providence, Rhode Island. Gilman writes of her depression. "...I feel as though I were drifting open eyed into insanity...What seems most suspicious to me is that I no longer care much about whether I live or die, do much or little, cause pain or pleasure..." She reports that Dr. Keller had advised going out, including to the gymnasium. When the letter moves to, July 15, Gilman laments that her memory is not what is was and that she has been reading a lot of novels and stories, including those by Charles Victor Cherbuliez.
