While at Yale College
Tuesday, Sept. 2. By a sparing-ness in diet, and eating as much as may be what is light and easy of digestion, I shall doubtless be able to think more clearly, and shall gain time; 1. By lengthening out my life. 2. Shall need less time for digestion, after meals; 3. Shall be able to study more closely, without injury to my health, 4. Shall need less time for sleep, 5. Shall more seldom be troubled with the headache.
