Some years since circumstances caused me to spend the summer months in a farming district, a few miles from the village of E. , and it was there I met with Terry Dolan. He had a short time previous come over from Ireland, and was engaged as a sort of chore boy by Mr. L. , in whose family I resided during my stay in the neighborhood. This Terry was the oddest being with whom I ever chanced to meet. Would that I could describe him! - but most of us, I believe, occasionally meet with people, whom we find to be indescribable, and Terry was one of those. He called himself sixteen years of age; but, excepting that he was low of stature, you would about as soon have taken him for sixty, as sixteen. His countenance looked anything but youthful, and there was altogether a sort of queer, ancient look about him which caused him to appear very remarkable. When he first came to reside with Mr. L. the boys in the neighborhood nicknamed him "The little Old Man, " but they soon learned by experience that their wisest plan was to place a safe distance between Terry and [Pg 6]themselves before applying that name to him, for the implied taunt regarding his peculiar appearance enraged him beyond measure.
