An American Tale. Brown, Charles Brockden I Feel little reluctance in complying with your request. You know not fully the cause of my sorrows. You are a stranger to the depth of my distresses. Hence your efforts at consolation must necessarily fail. Yet the tale that I am going to tell is not intended as a claim upon your sympathy. In the midst of my despair, I do not disdain to con- tribute what little I can to the benefit of mankind. I acknowledge your right to be informed of the events that have lately happened in my family. Make what use of the tale you shall think proper. If it be communicated to the world, it will incul- cate the duty of avoiding deceit. It will exemplify the force of early impressions, and show the im- measurable evils that flow from an erroneous or imperfect discipline. Thu, 01 Jan 1970 12:00:00 GMT
