I had beenpromenading Broadway in my shroud!" I should be doing injustice to my friend's memory, were I to publishother extracts even nearer to insanity than this, front the scarcelylegible papers before me. I gather from them--for I do not rememberthat he ever related to me the circumstances--that he once made ajourney, chiefly on foot, to Niagara. Some conduct of the friends amongwhom he resided in his native village was constructed by him intooppression. These were the friends to whose care ...he had been committedby his parents, who died when Oberon was about twelve years of age. Though he had always been treated by them with the most uniformkindness, and though a favorite among the people of the village ratheron account of the sympathy which they felt in his situation than fromany merit of his own, such was the waywardness of his temper, that ona slight provocation he ran away from the home that sheltered him, expressing openly his determination to die sooner than return to thedetested spot.
