'Try sometimes, when you require new aliments, the elder Pliny or Theophrastus. I think that will not only be real viaticum for your head, but will give your prose a certain wild, rustic texture which we must acquire. Most of our modern writing is very metropolitan and that is a weakness. I find great pleasure in rereading Skeat on Chaucer or in Captain John Smith's Travels, which is which is full of strong idioms, and not vulgar like our own street-gamin patois.'--December 11, 1952, to Lewis Mumford..
