The Doctor's visit. This same Dr. Ames expressed himself in quite caustic terms regarding some practitioners. But on July 20 (1767) he made a call on one, thus noted: Went Dr. Gardner's at Milton drank excellent Wine made of Cherries thus 50 lb. of good Cherries stoned, 37 lb of Sugar and Water enough to make the whole into the Quantity of half a Barrell. N. B. you put in the whole Cherries except the Stones The above must have been Milton home brew (equally common in Medford) and seemed to have impressed him favorably. What he might say today is another matter.

The expeditions. The four Yankee expeditions by sea against the South, have as yet accomplished nothing important. Their equipment must have afforded an immense demand on the merchant marine of the Northern cities, and their conception may be probably due to Yankee cunning. There are none more rampant for putting down rebellion and annihilating the rebels than the owners of unemployed vessels in Portland, Boston, New Bedford, New York, and a host of Yankee ports. They shout for the Government and execrate the South to some purpose! The war is to them a harvest, the like of which they never had. Even the old whalers of New Bedford that were unfit for sea, were sold to great advantage to be used in the stone blockade! The mercenary ship owners have certainly done better with these projects than the Government. Like the offspring of Sin in Milton's "Paradise Lost," these heartless Yankees are eating into the very vitals of their own Government! Let them eat on!

The Origin of Familiar Phrases. --The term "masterly inactivity" originated with Sir James Macintosh. "God tempers the wind to the shorn lamb," which everybody who did not suppose it was in the Bible credited to Sterne, was stolen by him from George Herbert, who translated it from the French of Henry Estienne. "The cup that cheers but not inebriates," was conveyed by Cower from Bishop Berkeley, in his "Siris." Wadsworth's "The child is father to the man," is traced from him to Milton, and from Milton to Sir Thomas Moore. "Like angels' visits, few and far between," is the offspring of Hook; it is not Thomas Campbell's original thought. Old John Norris (1658) originated it, and after him Robert Blair, as late as 1745. "There's a guide time coming" is Scott's phrase in "Rob Roy," and the "almighty dollar" is Washington living's happy thought.
