      Mr. Clement Clarke Moore Dies Suddenly of Pneumonia.
      Descendant of Writer of Christmas Poem Expires After a Brief Illness in Hotel Belmont.
      Mr. Clement Clarke Moore, of No. 57 East Fifty-fourth street, died suddenly yesterday afternoon of pneumonia at the Hotel Belmont, where he was to have spent the winter with his family. The funeral service will be held tomorrow morning in Saint Bartholomew's Church, Madison avenue and Forty-third street.
      Mr. Moore had been ill but a couple of days, and as late as Wednesday was seen about the corridor of the hotel. Mrs. Moore and one of her sons are at the hotel convalescing from protracted illness. The engagement of another son, Mr. Barrington Moore, to Miss Muriel Morris was announced early this month. The marriage was arranged for December 20, at the home of Miss Morris' mother, Mrs. L. Cass Ledyard, No. 27 East Seventy-second street. Besides the widow and three sons, Mesers. Barrington, Benjamin and William S. Moore, a brother, Mr. Casimir de Rham Moore, of No. 109 East Thirty-eighth street, and a sister, Miss Katherine T. Moore, survive.
      Mr. Moore was born at Sing Sing, now Ossining, N.Y., in 1843, and had lived in New York and the vicinity all his life. He was the eldest son of Benjamin Moore and Mary Elizabeth Sing. His grandfather, Clement C. Moore, inherited from his father, Benjamin Moore, who was the second Episcopal Bishop of this diocese, the greater part of the old village of Chelsea, on the west side.
      The "Chelsea Farm" extended from Nineteenth to Twenty-fourth street and from what is now Eighth avenue to the North River. Out of this tract, Clement C. Moore gave to the General Theological Seminary the ground which it still occupies. Most of the remainder of the property is still in possession of the family.
      In 1883 Clement C. Moore came near to parting with his heritage. He was offered, and seriously considered the offer, $40,000 for the Chelsea farm. on the advice of a friend he decided to keep the property.
      This Clement C. Moore was born in New York July 15, 1779, and died at Newport July 10, 1863. He is best remembered as the author of the Christmas poem beginning:-
      "Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house
      Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse."
      This poem, one of a collection published in 1822, was written in a house in West Twenty-third street, just west of Ninth avenue, which was sold in December, 1909, as part of the estate of Miss Josephine L. Wells.
