Extract from Thomas Jefferson to Martha Jefferson Randolph
|Philadelphia Feb. 9. 1791.|
I hope you are getting well, towards which great care of yourself is necessary: for however adviseable it is for those in health to expose themselves freely, it is not so for the sick. you will be out in time to begin your garden, & that will tempt you to be out a great deal, than which nothing will tend more to give you health & strength.
