"You complained of being stupid, and sent me one of the cleverest letters. I have not complained of being stupid, and sent you one of the dullest. But it is no matter; I never aim at anything above the pitch of every day's scribble, when I write to those I love."
From a letter to John Johnson, Esq., dated Weston, Dec. 18, 1790
