Excerpt from Letters, Poems, and Miscellaneous Papers, of the Late James Tyson: With a Brief Memoir of His Life James Tyson, the author of the following pages, was born in the borough of Southwark, on the twenty-ninth day of August, ln the year 1797, of parents whose respectable situation in life was favorable for allowing him those advan tages of study and intellectual improvement, which tended not only to endear him to the circle of his immediate acquaintance, but to render him capable of becoming an ornament to the country that gave him birth. He was the elder of two children, the younger of whom died in infancy, and on the death of his father, which took place within about a year after the birth of James, the care of his education became solely entrusted to one of the most affectionate of mo thers, whose pride was to watch over the growth of his infant mind, and to engraft in it those seeds of virtue and dignity which became in time the settled principles of his life.
