Excerpt from Memoir of Margery Jackson: The Carlisle Miser Misanthrope

After many years absence from her native place (Carlisle), and finding on her return that the peculiarities of the late Miss Jackson still afforded a subject for conversation, and excited interest; and learning that no account of her, in a detached form, had ever appeared before the public, the writer is induced to present this sketch of, perhaps, the most remarkable character that ever resided in Carlisle.

It may be asked in this age of benevolence, "what benefit can accrue from an exhibition of singularities which are by no means worthy of imitation?"

If lessons of morality may be learned from inanimate creation; if we can

"Find tongues is trees, books in the running brooks,
"Sermons in stones, and good in every thing,"

much more may certainly be educed from the intelligent part thereof, even when we fail to find anything meet for example: hence we have brought before us in scripture the character of a Nable, a Mezabel, and a Ahab.
