WASHING

I don't like this thing of being stripped naked & washed. I like to be stripped & warmed at the stove--that is real bully--but I do despise this washing business. I believe it to be a gratuitous & unnecessary piece of meanness. I never see them wash the cat.
- Letter written in voice of his young son Langdon, 11 November 1870
