Excerpt from The Telescope The grave at which we are going to listen, was dosed in the year 1758. The history of the man, who was then buried out of sight of the living, gives to its silence, and darkness, and corruption, a sacred eloquence. He who has been hidden so long from the eyes of men, came into being about the beginning of the last century, in one of the ancient villages on the banks of the Connecticut.
