12 February 1851: "I trust that the walkers of the present day are conscious of the blessings which they enjoy in the comparative freedom with which they can ramble over the country and enjoy the landscape - anticipating with compassion that future day when possibily it will be partitioned off into so called pleasure grounds where only a few may enjoy the narrow and exclusive pleasure which is compatible with ownership. When walking over the surface of God's earth - shall be construed to mean trespassing on some gentleman's grounds. When fences shall be multiplied and man traps and other engines invented to confine them to the public road. I am thankful that we have yet so much room in America."
