If the present moment only were to be attended worth attention
to, and if the earliest employments of which an infant
pupil were capable of being put to, were sufficient
for the purpose of health (the future included as
well as the present) the article of exercises would not constitute
a topic distinct from that of lucrative occupations.

But the case is, that there are many little occupations
in by the way which manual dexterity is capable of being turned
to account in the way of pecuniary economy at
a time during which no such profit can be reaped
from any of those exercises intensive energies the exertion of
which is necessary to as well to present health,
as to the due and perfect development of the
human faculties, both of body and mind – Thus
in other words there is in both cases at the early part of life a considerable period of
human existence during which at the early part of life the human powers
are capable of being turned to account in the way respect
of pecuniary economy, in the way of a variety of occupations,
not affording which do not exercise enough suitable
in quantity and quality to the purposes of health
and encrease of strength, for a considerable period time
before they are capable to be turned to account
in that respect by in the way of any occupations,
by which exercise suitable to and sufficient
for those purposes is supplied. Free air, vigorous
exertion
