t!ie writer mentions that, being one of a large j
family, and his parents poor, he apprenticed ,
himself, when very young, to a blacksmith, j
but that he had always had such a taste ;
(or reading, that he carried it with him to his i
trade. He commenced the study of Latin ;
when his indentures were not half expired,;
and completed leading Virgil in the evenings
of one Winter. IJe next studied Greek, and ;
carried the Greek Grammar about in his hat, ;
studying it for a tew moments while heating j
some large non. In the evenings he sat down ;
to ijoiner's Iliad, ami read twenty hooks of it ,
during ttie second winter. He next turned to ;
the modern tongues, and went to New Haven, 1

Spanish, and Italian. At die end of two years
