"As going naked is a thing of so great antiquity and now so little practis'd, I have made it my business to consider the reasons for such a change. I find they are entirely void of any foundation, and I doubt not but I shall convince all unprejudic'd persons of the absurdity of wearing any clothes."--Page [3].
