2829. EXERCISE, Walking.—

Of all exercises
walking is the best. * * * No one
knows, till he tries, how easily a habit of walking
is acquired. A person who never walked
three miles will in the course of a month become
able to walk fifteen or twenty without
fatigue. I have known some great walkers, and
had particular accounts of many more; and I
never knew or heard of one who was not healthy
and long lived.—
To T. M. Randolph, Jr. Ford ed., iv, 293.
(P. 1786)
