AUTHENTIC PARTICULARS

OF

DANIEL DANCER, Esq.

LATE OF PINNER, MIDDLESEX, Who died in a Sack, and is a most Remarkable Example of

UNACCOUNTABLE AVARICE.

Content is wealth, the riches of the mind,
And happy he who can that treasure find,
But the base Miser starves amid his Store,
Broods on his gold, and griping still for more,
Sits sadly pining, and believes he's poor.

DRYDEN.

}

The

he astonishing misery which attends avarice, affords a most admirable lesson to all those both in affluent and in. digent circumstances: it teaches the former that wealth is not always the source of happiness, and the latter may fee that, though poor, they are richer in content than some popelled of thousands ; who, through their unaccountable penury, render themselves base and unhappy; for a Miser, according to the true meaning of the word, (being derived from the Latin) is a person mean and miserable!

Mr. DANIEL DANCER, a most remarkable instance of extraordinary parsimony, was born in the year 1716, and was the eldest of four children, three sons and a daughter. His father lived on Harrow-Weald Common, near Harrow on the Hill, where he possessed property to a very considerable amount, and which this his son, by the most whimfical abstemiousness increased to upwards of 3000l. per annum. Miss Dancer, who supplied the place of a servant to her brother, was equally avaricious and saving : 2 mixVOL. I. No. I.
