Helpful hint from early American know-how

on July 23, 2013

When I was at the Historical Society this past weekend, I came across a book “Eric Sloane’s DO a little book of early American know-how”  This book was full of helpful hints on everything from making old time toys to making ginger wine, however this entry I found so funny . . .

“DO take an air bath.  Benjamin Franklin rose each morning at daybreak, got out of bed and passed half an hour in his chamber without any clothes.  This, he said, refreshened as much as a complete bath in water.”
