Excerpt from Anecdotes of the Blind
To have done with this long preamble, I will proceed to relate the few principal events of my brief existence. I am now twenty-six years of age, .am six feet in heighth, and in bodily power am not inferior to my fellows. Iwas born in Albany, and am the child of respectable parents, in the middle walks of life. My father was bred to the seas and was the master of a vessel. He was an American born, and so was my mother. I am pure Yankee, as far'as I can trace my ancestry. I was not born blind but had the use of my eyes for several years, in as much perfection as any boy.
