Excerpt from Narrative of Johann Carl Buettner: In the American Revolution

The place where I, Johann Carl Buettner, the Ameri can,* first saw the light in the year 1754, is Lauta, a vil lage situated in the district of the royal province of Senftenberg. My father, Johann Ehregott Buettner, a regularly ordained minister, preached there the best of all religions. My mother's name was Johanne Chris tiane, and she was the daughter of a clergyman named Pittius of N ussdorf, near Forste, situated in N ieder laussitz. I was the third child of my parents, who were blest with eleven children, four of whom are alive at present. Nature endowed all my brothers and sisters with a lively temperament, and in this respect was not less generous to me. Love of excitement and adventure, that I have not lost even in my seventieth year, became noticeable in my earliest youth. By the time I had the full use of my legs, there was no piece of daring that I would refuse. The higher the tree, the happier I was to climb to the top. Naturally on account of this, I some times suffered mischance. Thus it happened that in my fifth year I climbed a tree in the garden of the Rec tory at Lauta, and had reached the very top, when the limb to which I was holding suddenly broke. I fell to the ground, and lay there like one dead. Summoned from the house by the terrified cries of my playmates, my mother rushed to my side. But instead of sym pathizing with me, she restored me to consciousness with several smart cuffs on the ear.
