Thoreau the Land Surveyor
are commonly too narrow. If you should take off a gentleman's shoes,
you would find that his foot was wider than his shoe. Think of his
wearing such an engine! walking in it many miles year after year!
A wise man will wear a shoe wide and large enough, shaped somewhat like the foot, and tied with a leather string, and so go his way in peace, letting his foot fall at every step.
When your shoe chafes your feet, put in a mullein leaf.
