2832. EXERCISE, Weather and.—

weather should be little regarded. A person not
sick will not be injured by getting wet. It is
but taking a cold bath which never gives a
cold to any one. Brute animals are the most
healthy, and they are exposed to all weather
and, of men, those are healthiest who are the
most exposed. The recipe of these two descriptions
of beings is simple diet, exercise and the
open air, be its state what it will: and we May
venture to say that this recipe will give health
and vigor to every other description.—
To T. M. Randolph, Jr. Ford ed., iv, 294.
