., June 7, 1800. At the time of his birth Cayuga county was a wilderness, with few settlements, the nearest house to that of the Fillmores being 4 miles distant. Mr. Fillmore's early education was limited, and at the age of fourteen years he was apprenticed to a fuller. He became fond of reading, and at the age of nineteen years desired to study law.

His greatest work, The principal Navigations, voyages, Trafficks, and discoveries of the English nation, made by sea or over land, to the most remote and farthest distant quarters of the earth, at any time within the compass of these fifteen hundred years, was published the same year.
