Note
An autobiographical account of the early years of Frederic Kenyon Brown, under the pseudonym "Al Priddy." Brown immigrated to New Bedford in 1892 at the age of ten with his aunt and uncle, whose drinking and mounting debts made it necessary for Brown to work in a textile mill, first as a back boy and doffer, then as a mule spinner. Brown's story first appeared as a collection of articles in The Outlook.

"Since its appearance in the Outlook, the autobiography has been entirely rewritten and new chapters have been added."-Note.
