" I was the youngest," says the writer, "of ma
ny brethrenand icy parents were poor. My
means of education were limited lo the advantage
of a direct schooland those again were circum
scribed by my father's death, which deprived me,
at the age of fifteen, ofHliose scanty opportunities
which l. had previously enjoyed. A few months
after his decease, I apprenticed myself to a black

more than half my apprenticeship, I suddenly con

knowledge of the Latin furnished me with a key
to the literature of tho languages of Europe. :'
This circumstance gave a new impulse to. the
desire of acquainting myself with the philosophy,
derivation, and affinity of the different European
tongues. I could not be reconciled to submit my
sell in theSe investigations to a few hours aAer the
arduous labors of the duy. I therefore laid down
my hammer and went to New Haven, where I re4
cited to native teachers in- French, Spanish, uer
man, and Italian.' I returned at the expiration of
two years to theforgebriugiiigwith me such,
books in thoge languages asl could procure. When
I had read these books through, 1 commenced the.

means of initiating myself into tho fields of orien.

1 found mv progress in this direction hedged up by
the want of requisite books.. 1 immediately began
