    What ho! What ho! This fellow is dancing

    mad! He bath been bitten by the

    Tarantula All in the. Wrong.

    Many years ago, I contracted an

    intimacy with a Mr. William Legrand. He

    was of an ancient Huguenot family, andhad once been wealthy; but a series

    of misfortunes had reduced him to want.

    To avoid the mortification consequent

    upon his disasters, he left New Orleans,

    the city of his forefathers, and took up his

    residence at Sullivan's Island, near

    Charleston, South Carolina.

    This Island is a very Singular one. It

    consists of little else than the sea sand,

    and is about three miles long. Its

    breadth at no point exceeds a quarter of a

    mile. It is separated from the main land by

    a scarcely perceptible creek, oozing its

    way through a wilderness of

    reeds and slime, a favorite resort of the

    Marsh-hen. The vegetation, as might be

    supposed, is scant, or at leagt dwarfish.

    No trees of any magnitude are to be seen.

    Near the Western extremity? where Fort

    Multrie stands, and are some

    miserable frame buildings, tenanted,

    during summer, by the fugitives from

    Charleston dust and fever, may be found

    indeed, the bristly Palmetto; but the wholeIsland, with the exception of this

    Western point, and a line of hard, white

    beach on the seacoast is covered with a

    dense undergrowth of the sweet myrtle,

    so much prized by the horticulturists of

    England. The shrub here often attains the

    height of fifteen or twenty feet, and forms

    an almost impenetrable Coppice,burthening the air with its fragrance. in

    the inmost, recesses of this coppice, not

    far from the eastern or more remote

    end of the Island, Legrand had built

    himself a "Small hut, which he occupied

    when T first by more accident,

    made his acquaintance. This soon ripenedinto friendship-for these was much in therecluse to excite interest and esteem. I foundhim well educated, with unusual powers ofmind, but infected with misanthropy, andsubject to perverse moods of alternateenthusiasm and meloncholy. He had with himmany books, but rarely employed them. HisChief amusements were gunning and fishing,or sauntering along the beach and through

    the myrtles, in quest of shells orentomological specimens; his collection ofthe latter might have been envied bySwammerdamn....
