John Milton

His exercise was chiefly walking. He was an early riser (scill at 4 o'clock manè), yea. After he lost his sight, he had a man to read to him. The first thing he read was the Hebrew bible, and that was at 4h. mane, 1/2h. plus. Then he contemplated.

At 7h. his man came to him again, and then read to him again, and wrote till dinner ; the writing was as much as the reading.

After dinner he used to walk 3 or four hours at a time (he always had a garden where he lived) went to bed about 9.
