Death and the Author

This chapter discusses the health condition of Lawrence. Whatever Lawrence tried, his health condition continued to deteriorate. Lawrence had no difficulty in combining or reinforcing it with his long standing belief that people fell ill because they did not know how to live. Yet it was not easy for Lawrence to give up caring. He had cared too much and, give or take a few enthusiastic young disciples, the only result was that he was now unwell. This chapter also shows an example of a fellow patient, in the terminal phases of his disease, but determined to live as fully as he can, to persuade the accountant to accept the unfairness of his situation and change his attitude.
