"I admire and revere the purity of your sentiments, the innocence of your life; I trace out in my mind the method of your daily conduct, by comparing it with what I formerly well knew in happier days, and under more endearing circumstances."
— Rousseau, Jean-Jacques (1712-1778); Kenrick, William (1729/30-1779)
(I, p. 89)
