Excerpt from Kirby's Wonderful and Eccentric Museum; Or Magazine of Remarkable Characters, Vol. 2 of 6: Including All the Curiosities of Nature and Art, From the Remotest Period to the Present Time, Drawn From Every Authentic Source He was no less eminent for writing, drawing coats Of' arms, sketches, &c. With a pen; was an adept at cards, and dice. He also performed tricks with cups and balls, corn, and living birds, and could play at skittles and nine-pins with great dexterity with other particulars, not less surprising, in a person so mutilated by nature, as he appeared to be. - But among the most remarkable of his drawings, is his own portrait; and as an embellishment in the delineation Of his wig, he most curiously contrived, that its curls should exhibit in several fairly written lines, the 87th, Izist, 128th, 130th, l4oth, 149th, and the l5oth Psalms, concluding with the Lord's Prayer. As another singularity in his domestic affairs, it is remarkable that he was married four times, and had eleven children; viz. One by his first 'wife, three by his second, six by his third, and one by his last - fhis whole stature was no more than 29 inches in height the portrait accompanying this description of his person, was copied from that drawn by himself.
