his own handwriting, that, befure he was
Dfteen years of age, he had conceited A
pAs*iot for some unknown beauty, so se
ri us as to s'is'urb his otherwise wtli reg

a mere school-boy and treated hiui a* such
e»r his own shynes* may have been in his
way, and his "ruks fur behavior and con
versAtion," may as yet have sat awkward
ly on him and rendered him fornnl and un
eaiiilr when he most sought to please.—
en in lay ye trs he was apt to be silent
and cmlMma^ed in femde society. "He
was A very I Ashful young man," sad an
old lady whom he used to \uit when they
were both in their nonage. "I used often
to wish that he would talk more."
h.»tever may have bem the reason,
this early attachment snm* to have be^a
A siurc«- of poignant d.scomfort to Kim.
It clung to him after he took a tjn »l ave
of schoul »n the sutumn of 1747, and went
reside with s brother Lawrence At
nt Vernon. Here he continued ijt#
mathematical s*u'?ies and his pmcticc in
aurve\ing, disturbed at times by recurren
ces of his unlucky passion.
