Brown, Charles Brockden I WAS resident in this city during the year 1793. Many motives contributed to detain me, though departure was easy and commodious, and my friends were generally solicitous for me to go. It is not my purpose to enumerate these motives, or to dwell on my present concerns and trans- actions, but merely to compose a narrative of some incidents with which my situation made me acquainted. Thu, 01 Jan 1970 12:00:00 GMT Arthur Mervyn; Or, Memoirs of the Year 1793, part 2. Brown, Charles Brockden Here ended the narrative of Mervyn. Surely its in- cidents were of no common kind. During this season of pestilence, my opportunities of observation had been numerous, and I had not suffered them to pass unim- proved. The occurrences which fell within my own experience bore a general resemblance to those which had just been related, but they did not hinder the latter from striking on my mind with all the force of novelty.

His father's trade was that or an apo- thecary. But this son, manifesting an attachment to the pencil, he was resolved that it should be gratified. For this end Stephen was sent at an early age to Europe, and not only enjoyed the in- structions of Fuzeli and Bartolozzi, but spent a considerable period in Italy, in studying the Au- gustan and Medicean monuments. It was intend- ed that he should practise his art in his native city, but the young man, though reconciled to this scheme by deference to paternal authority, and by a sense of it... Thu, 01 Jan 1970 12:00:00 GMT Wieland; or The Transformation. An American Tale. Brown, Charles Brockden I Feel little reluctance in complying with your request.

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
