Lauren Rowe 08/29 Wieland By: Charles Brockden Brown Out of class notes Clara Wieland is the narrator ­ Her grandfather is disowned and disinherited nobility because he married a merchants  daughter ­ Her father grew up mostly without parents and worked hard labor for many years ­ He wasn’t the artsy type and had no patience for congregational religion (he was more of  a spiritual figured. And so was his wife: Clara’s mother) ­ Clara’s parents practiced their own forms of faith and didn’t impress any religious  teachings to their children ­ Clara’s father kept his faith close to himself and wouldn’t express his solitude prayers to  anyone­ even his wife ­ He began suspecting (or was told in some way) that he would die, and his behavior  drastically changed immediately before he died. He awoke from slumber and move to  pray in his personal temple when something inside caught fire. ­ Clara’s uncle on her mother’s side found her father inside naked, and badly burned and  bruised. They couldn’t explain why as he still had hair and slippers. The last few hours of his life he was delirious. Clara’s mother dies shortly after. She and her brother Theodore  were left in the care of an aunt. ­ The aunt was neither strict nor lenient in her teachings; mostly left the siblings to their  devices. ­ Clara and Theo met and became close friends with Catherine Pleyel. Three peas in a pod. ­ Catherines brother Henry joined the group a few years later as he was traveling at the  time the others became acquainted. Clara describes Catherine and Theo as a match made  in heaven. They have 4 kids.  ­ Henry appears jovial yet stubborn; he has no patience for others opinions and trusts his  opinion above others. He also doesn’t let others see his emotions.  ­ A 14 year old girl named Louisa Conway becomes acquainted with the four and Clara is  particularly fond of her; describing her feelings as more than parental ­ A man visiting a neighbor of Clara’s meets both ladies and reacts shockingly toward  Louisa.  ­ He tells a story of Mr. Conway having to leave a loving wife and child to go to war. He  says that he and his wife exchanged love letters. But when he was cleared to return home  his wife and child were missing; no one knows if they were abducted or left under their  own power.  ­ The absence of his family quickly led to his death and the man speaking to Louisa and  Clara inherited Louisa’s fathers property.  ­ Then Theo goes to fetch a letter from Louisa’s father and comes back without it,  behaving strangely. He thinks Catherine followed him to the hill and spoke when in fact  she never left the house.
