Biographies of the three wives of Rev. Adoniram Judson, a missionary from the United States to Burma. Ann Hasseltine (1789-1826) of Bradford, Massachusetts, married the Rev. Judson in 1812 and sailed immediately for Calcutta, India. Upon arrival, they found that the British East India Company and the British government would not allow American-born missionaries to work in India, so they moved on to Rangoon and Seramphore, Burma. Her health in the middle east was never good, and after loosing two babies, she herself died in 1826. Sarah Hall (1803-1845) married George Dana Boardman in 1825, and sailed with him to Rangoon and elsewhere in Burma, to strengthen the missionary work there. They lost their two children, and then Mr. Boardman died in 1831. Sarah continued to work as a missionary, and in 1834 she married Rev. Adoniram Judson. They had four children before her health so declined that he determined to take her home to America, but she died en route. Emily Chubbuck (1817-1854), who published poetry under the pen name of "Fanny Forrester," became the third wife of the Rev. Judson in New York in 1846. They sailed immediately for Burma, where he continued his missionary work until he died in 1850. She then left Burma and returned to America in 1851

The autobiography by Benjamin Franklin( Book )

3 editions published between 1853 and 1857 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Famous as a scientist, statesman, philosopher, businessman, and civic leader, Benjamin Franklin was also one of the most powerful and controversial American writers of his time, and has been a subject of intense debate ever since: to Matthew Arnold, he exemplified "victorious good sense"; to D.H. Lawrence, he was "the first dummy American." Franklin's classic Autobiography is his last word on his greatest literary creation -- his own invented persona, the original incarnation of the American success story. For the first time, the authoritative editions of works by major American novelists, poets, scholars, and essayists collected in the hardcover volumes of The Library of America are being published singly in a series of handsome and durable paperback books. A distinguished author has contributed an introduction for each volume, which also includes a detailed chronology of the author's life and career, an essay on the choice of the text, and notes
