Extract from Thomas Jefferson to Martha Jefferson Randolph

these reveries ... leave me always impressed with the desire of being at home once more, and of exchanging labour, envy, and malice, for ease, domestic occupation, & domestic love & society, where I may once more be happy with you, with mr. Randolph, & dear little Anne, with whom even Socrates might ride on a stick without being ridiculous.
