Need for Getting Away From Work

I see many subjects to write out which must be done with the greatest care. I want this summer, the whole of it, to do this work in. I must stop a day or two in the week and go somewhere or my head will break down. I begrudge every moment that I feel compelled to rest. These intensely interesting subjects weary me far more to write them out than to speak upon them.—Letter 9, 1876, p. 2. (To James White, April 18, 1876.) 8MR 124.1
