[ca. 1812] From Ricky Jay: “Ann Moore … is perhaps the most famous of all fasting
imposters—not because her accomplishments were in any way
more impressive than [others], but because she happened
to be included in numerous nineteenth-century anthologies
devoted to eccentric characters” (Exemplars, p. 158).
