Some of the experiences which I have to record are of so unusual a character that I think it will help to a better understanding on the part of my readers if I briefly outline the drift of my existence before I became aware of the women s movement, and in touch with that section of it known as the Militant Suffragettes My father had been dead fifteen years and I was thiSome of the experiences which I have to record are of so unusual a character that I think it will help to a better understanding on the part of my readers if I briefly outline the drift of my existence before I became aware of the women s movement, and in touch with that section of it known as the Militant Suffragettes My father had been dead fifteen years and I was thirty nine years old in 1906, when my narrative begins I lived with my mother in the country Two sisters and two brothers had left the home when they were young the sisters to marry, the brothers to train for and enter their professions I assumed, as did all my friends and relations, that, being past the age when marriage was likely, I should always remain at home In my early girlhood I had a yearning to take up music professionally again, after father s death, when unexpected financial misfortunes caused my mother great anxiety, I had longed to try my hand at journalism and once , a few years later, I had the same ambition But these wishes, finding no favour, had in each case eventually to be repressed, and in 1906 I had neither equipment, training nor inclination for an independent life I had been or less of a chronic invalid through the greater part of my youth An overmastering laziness and a fatalistic submission to events as they befell were guiding factors in my existence I was passionately fond of animals and of children, music was a great delight to me otherwise I was not given to intellectual pursuits So far as I know, I was an average ordinary human being, except perhaps for an exaggerated dislike of society and of publicity in any form I had many intimate friends, both men and women, and also children Such mental training as I have known was chiefly due to intercourse with them I owed to them, as well as to my mother and many members of my family, a happy life, in spite of considerable physical suffering In 1896 and successive years I had given secretarial help to my aunt, Mrs C W Earle, in the writing of her wonderfully delightful books, beginning with Pot Pourri from a Surrey Garden She insisted that, in return for my small and mostly mechanical services, we should share the profits of the sale The book ran into many editions, and she held to her bargain, but I never felt as if I had a right to the money Her widely sympathetic and stimulating companionship had a great influence on my mind Thanks to her investigations in theories of diet, I became a strict vegetarian My health gained in all directions and I gradually freed myself from the so called constitutional rheumatism from which I had suffered since my infancy I realised, too, that all these years I had caused untold suffering that I might be fed, and determined that in future the unnatural death of an animal should not be necessary to make up my bill of fare My vitality increased, but the notion of a vocation apart from my family and home remained as foreign to my ideas as it was then to the average British spinster of my class In the year 1906 my godmother, Lady Bloomfield, died She had shown me much kindness and I had never found an opportunity to serve her in any way, the generosity had been all on her side yet, at her death, she left me some money, without any conditions as to how I should spend it It gave me a strange new feeling of power and exhilaration I look back upon this event as being spiritually the starting point in my new life, of which this book will tell, although, from the practical point of view, it seems only by a series of coincidences that my after experiences were evolved from it.
