By William Austin (1778–1841). Born in Charlestown, Mass.
By William Austin (1778–1841). Is Peter Rugg his real name, or has he accidentally gained that name? I know not, but presume he will not deny his name; you can ask him, for see, he has turned his horse and is passing this way. In a moment, a dark-colored, high-spirited horse approached, and would have passed without stopping, but I had resolved to speak to Peter Rugg, or whoever the man might be. Accordingly I stepped into the street, and as the horse approached, I made a feint of stopping him. The man immediately reined in his horse.
William Austin’s words from the short story Peter Rugg, The Missing Man speaks to so many young men and women who are cut off from the last age, who’s past generation failed to pass on the wealth from previous generations, who secrets die with the dead, who’s heritage is but only a mystery. Peter Rugg was a man who every one saw, but no one knew.
