1332. CLINTON (George), Mental decay.—

It is wonderful to me that old men
should not be sensible that their minds keep
pace with their bodies in the progress of decay.
Our old revolutionary friend Clinton, for example,
who was a hero, but never a man of
mind, is wonderfully jealous on this head. He
tells eternally the stories of his younger days
to prove his memory, as if memory and reason
were the same faculty. Nothing betrays imbecility
so much as the being insensible of it.—
To Benjamin Rush. Washington ed. vi, 3. Ford ed., ix, 328.
