Brown, Charles Brockden What name is this? And to be conferred by a man on himself! Yet this is frequently the best policy. The surest way to preclude, is to anticipate censure, for no one will think it worth while, to call a poor culprit by names which the culprit has liberally and uncere- moniously given himself. If Tom says—“I am a fool and an oddity”—his worst enemies can only add—“So you are.” Fri, 01 Aug 1800 12:00:00 GMT The Scribbler.—No. II.. Brown, Charles Brockden Ah! Jenny! these are hard times, but ours is no extraordinary lot. Heavy as the burden is on us, there are thousands on whom the load is heavier still, while the shoulders on which it is laid, are far less able to sus- tain it than ours. Fri, 01 Aug 1800 12:00:00 GMT The Scribbler.—No. III.. Brown, Charles Brockden Why truly, Sister, I have no objection, but first, I must despatch my daily scribble. Con- tent thyself for a while with a look out from thy window. This is a more amusing em- ployment than I thought it would prove. What importance does it give, to have one's idle reveries clothed with the typographical vesture, multiplied some thousand fold, and dispersed far and wide among the race of readers! I wonder the scheme never occur- red to me before. Fri, 01 Aug 1800 12:00:00 GMT The Scribbler.—No. IV.. Brown, Charles Brockden Methinks I blush to mention what is just now the subject of my thoughts. Even to trust it to paper, when the name of the wri- ter is invisible, as mine shall always be, is somewhat difficult. Whence does this reluct- ance to acknowledge our poverty arise? Fri, 01 Aug 1800 12:00:00 GMT The Scribbler.—No. V.. Brown, Charles Brockden 'Tis a sad thing to be without a friend. To pass to and fro, through a busy crowd and no eye be caught at your approach; no coun- tenance expand into smiles, no hand be stretched forth and while it grasps yours, be accompanied by the friendly greeting of “How d'ye.” Fri, 01 Aug 1800 12:00:00 GMT The Speculatist. No. I. Brown, Charles Brockden AS I am a man of leisure, I frequently amuse myself with turning over the pages of your Magazine. I conceive your under- taking to be highly laudable, and wish you all success; notwithstand- ing, I perceive that you and I dif- er materially in our opinions re- specting the true purposes of such a publication. According to my opinion, a Magazine is not a volume from which, by laborious research, the divine, the philosopher, or the politician may extract materials to build some abstruse hypothesis, but a book whose every page should be fraught with some simple truth, some touching, moral precept, which comes home to the under- standing and the heart; a book to which the studious man may have recourse in a moment of relaxation, and from which, even the idle and the dissipated shall not rise without improvement. Since, then, not only to inform the understanding, but to delight the fancy, is the double purpose of the Magazine essayist, he is not always obliged to ransack the store-houses of me- mory and reflection... Tue, 01 Apr 1800 12:00:00 GMT The Speculatist: No. III. Brown, Charles Brockden AS soon as my friend had closed the door of my apartment I threw myself into an arm-chair, and, resting my elbow on an old-fashion- ed escritoire which stood beside me, sunk into an intense meditation. Perhaps on this occasion I was borne away by an imagination, whose be- nevolent ardours the frost of three score winters has not been able to repress. It has frequently deceived me by false representations of men and things; yet still I am inclined to resign myself to its influence: and, old as I am, my bosom throb- bed when I contemplated a com- munity in which justice should be considered as an universal and sa- cred duty, and perfect sincerity the privilege of every rational being. As the term justice is liable to dif- ferent acceptations, it may be ne- cessary to explain what I mean by the use of it. Justice, with me, is not that partial thing which confines its views to a family, a class, a na- tion, or even to the human species. It comprehends the whole of intel- ligent existence. It unites adoration of t... Wed, 01 Oct 1800 12:00:00 GMT The Speculatist: No.II. Brown, Charles Brockden Mon, 01 Sep 1800 12:00:00 GMT
