181. AGE, Advancing.—

Being very sensible
of bodily decays from advancing years,
I ought not to doubt their effect on the
mental faculties. To do so would evince
either great self-love or little observation of
what passes under our eyes; and I shall be
fortunate if I am the first to perceive and
to obey this admonition of nature.—
To Mr. Weaver. Washington ed. v, 88.
(W. June. 1807)
