Excerpt from The Hero of No Fiction, or Memoirs of Francis Barnett, the Lefevre of "No Fiction," and a Review of That Work, Vol. 2 of 2: With Letters and Authentic Documents

In February, 1822, my energies were again called into action, by accidentally meeting with an acquaintance, whom I had not seen for nearly twenty years, who was anxious to get a boy admitted into the Institution for the Blind; but was ignorant of the mode. I immediately entered into the business with all my might, and with such spirit, that on the day of election we had sufficient proxies to have ensuredthe election of six instead of one. This contest, however, kept my men tal powers continually at work, so that I scarcely took any rest; which so in?amed my mind, that it excited considerable alarm among some of my friends for my safety. On the 14th of March, a few days before the election, an accident occurred which had nearly proved fatal to me for on that day I was thrown out of a gig, and the wheel near ly passed over my head. In consequence of this accident bleeding was recommended, to which I willingly submitted that evening, d found it very beneficial.
