“He could walk, or rather turn about in his little garden, and feel more solid happiness from the flourishing of a cabbage or the growing of a turnip than was ever received from the most ostentatious show the vanity of man could possibly invent. He could delight himself with thinking, Here will I set such a root, because my Camilla likes it; here, such another, because it is my little Davids favorite.”
