Excerpt from The Rambler in North America MDCCCXXXII-MDCCCXXXIII, Vol. 1

You may recollect, that when boys at school, I seemed, as you were my junior, to have a certain natural right to stretch the sceptre of patronage over you. When fatigued of looking up to my two elder brothers as models of scarcely attainable perfection and wisdom, it was encouraging to turn and cast a glance of complacency on you, with the re?ection, that in your eyes at least, I must appear a personage of equally superior intelligence. At this later day the doubt may well occur to me, whether the two or three years by which I was your senior, had in fact given me a very decided advantage hver you in moral and physical alertness or power. This however I keep in remembrance, that you certainly looked up to me with a far greater degree of respect than I merited, and with a degree of affection, which, whatever may have been the fate of the former sentiment, has in no degree been diminished by added years, different pur suits, and long terms of separation.

But it may be admitted, that even at the present day, when both are well advanced in manhood, there still exists a certain weakness in my manner of looking upon you. When addressing you as at the present time, I persuade myself that in your breast at least, there are sentiments which will prove far stronger than the spirit of criticism Moreover, I am still, without fear of contradiction, a few years older, and if I dare presume to instruct and amuse any one, it may be yourself. In this spirit I take up my pen to reply to your last letter.
