Philip Freneau's Father
AbstractProfessor Leary, of the University of Miami, Florida, again gives us a glimpse into his findings in the Rutgers Library as he completes his work on a new biography of Philip Freneau. A year ago he allowed us to print for the first time since their original appearance in the New Brunswick Fredonian a number of poems by Freneau. This time he is revealing the significance of a book of transcripts of letters which were kept by Pierre Fresneau, the father of Philip. Former biographers have presented Philip Freneau as born into the tradition of wealth and culture. Here for the first time he is shown to have come from far more humble origins.
