Don't know how many of ya's have seen this, but I wanted to post the link just in case.

The line from this that reads:
"It is nonsense to day I was not compelled to keep him, that I could have sent him to a hospital or the almshouse. We are American citizens and we don't go to hospitals and poorhouses."

Just blows me away, and tells the differences between then and now. Great read.
