I., where he had Margaret Fuller for his assistant. He afterward became a bookseller in Providence, and in 1843 associated himself with N. P. Willis and George P. Morris in the publication of the " New Mirror." The three afterward-established the "Daily Mirror," of which Fuller became sole proprietor, and edited it for fourteen years. He wrote for it a series of clever society letters from Newport, under the pen name of "Belle Brittan."
