Yesterday and to day I have read loud, Tullius 4 Orations against Cataline. The Sweetness
and Grandeur of his sounds, and the Harmony of his Numbers give Pleasure enough to
reward the Reading if one understood none of his meaning. Besides I find it, a noble
Exercise. It exercises my Lungs, raises my Spirits, opens my Porr[s], quickens the Circulations, and so contributes much to Health.
