MISTER. Y: Well! It happened by doing this! I was students at Lund and wanted a loan in the bank. I had no severe debts and my father experienced some money though not much. I had developed sent my own note for the second person for his signature because my secureness, and, contrary to my objectives, it was delivered with a refusal. I seated there to get a moment, benumbed by the hit, for it was obviously a disagreeable surprise, very foul! The paper lay prior to me available and the notification lay around it. To start with my eyes wandered disconsolately within the fatal lines that organised my sentence in your essay it was don’t ever my fatality sentence, pertaining to I could very easily get one more security, as much as I wanted for example but , as I said, this was very unpleasant, anyway, and as I sit there, perfectly innocent, gradually my looks fasten on the personal unsecured to the letter, which in the proper place may possibly, perhaps, have already been the making of my personal future.

All thoughts as to the implications of this risk had disappeared there was certainly it was almost as if I had a lot of cherished obligation to perform and I wrote. What can it have been? Was it hypnotism, advice as it is named? If so , by whom? I slept alone in my room. May it have been my uncivilized self, the savage who have recognizes no contracts, who have, while my own consciousness rested, came to the leading with his legal desires wonderful incapability of reckoning the effects of an action? Tell me how do you feel about the matter?
