Thoreau's Journal: 11-Oct-1856

Farrar thought that the spirit manufactured a century ago was not so adulterated and poisonous as that now made. He could remember when delirium tremens was very rare. There was Luke Dodge; he could remember him a drunkard for more than forty years, yet he was now between eighty and ninety.

Congratulations for your blog.
I enjoy it a lot everyday.
For me, Thoreau still is one of the best thnikers of the world.
Good job!
