Memoirs of a New England rogue first published in 1798 and 1804, opening promisingly with his boyhood reminiscences: "I became the terror of the people where I lived, and all were very unanimous in declaring, that Stephen Burroughs was the worst boy in town; and those who could get him whipt were most worthy of esteem" (p. 6).
