When only a year old he was, by the small pox, deprived of his sight so that he retained no more ideas of light and colour than if he had been born blind. He was sent early in life to the Grammar School at Penistone, where he laid the foundation of that knowledge of the Greek and Roman languages, which he afterwards improved so far, by his own application to the classical authors, as to have the works of Euclid, Archimedes, and Diophantus read to him in their original Greek.
