Spare Hours (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Spare Hours In further reading how your father came, late in life, when it was too late, to know that he had neglected his body, I called to mind a remark of another Dr. Brown, which I thought you might like to hear, as confirmatory of your theory of the unity of the Browns. Dr. John Brown, D.D., was a native of Brooklyn, in this State. He was settled at one time in Caze novia, New York, and finally died at the age of fifty, prematurely worn out, at Hadley, Mass. He was a man of great tenacity of purpose, strength of intellect, a clear thinker, and generally a powerful man. He was also much beloved, for his heart was large and warm. While he was waiting for death to overtake him, being undermined as I have said, I have heard my mother say that he once remarked, I have worn myself out in labour which God never required of me, and for which man never will thank me.
