      [I have omitted Moore's poem.]

      . . .

      "Mr. William S. Pelletreau, in the interesting account of Dr. Moore's life which he has just published, tells us that the 'Visit from St. Nicholas' was written in 1822 as a Christmas present for his children ; and that a young lady [Footnote: * Eldest daughter of Rev. Dr. David Butler, of St. Paul's Church, Troy.] visiting the family copied it into her album, and sent it, unknown to Dr. Moore, to the editor of the Troy Sentinel, who printed it, without the author's name, in the issue of that journal for December 23, 1823. From the newspaper it found its way to the school-readers, and speedily became a great favorite with children all over the country.

      "Mr. Pelletreau tells us that Dr. Moore was at first annoyed by the appearance of the poem in print, as he had not intended it for the public, and thought it a mere trifle with but slight literary merit. No doubt it was with some misgivings that, twenty years later, he gave it a place in the volume of his collected poems. With the proverbial blindness of writers, he probably thought this playful sally, written to please his youngsters at their Christmas merry-making far inferior to its all-forgotten companions, of which he says in his preface : 'Some of them have cost me much time and thought, and I have composed them all as carefully and correctly as I could.'

      . . .

      "While the Widow Clarke occupied 'Chelsea Farm' her house was seized by the British on the stormy uprising of the 'rebels' ; and, like every other householder, she was obliged to accept whatever military guard might be quartered upon her. Many of these householders left their dwellings to the tender mercies of the enemy and fled ; but Mrs. Clarke was advised to remain, and she was fortunate in her enforced guest, who proved to be a gallant officer and a courteous gentleman, who spared her goods and treated her and her daughters with consideration.

      "It was in this house that Bishop Moore's only child was born -- a son, who was named after his mother's only brother, Clement Clarke. After receiving the elements of his education from his father, he entered Columbia College, and was graduated in 1798. He was fitted for the ministry, but he never took orders; and continuing to live in his father's house, he devoted himself to Oriental and classical studies, and employed his leisure in writing verse, not for profit or publication, but to lighten his severer labors and amuse his children and his friends. His first printed venture was made in 1806, as the anonymous contributor to the book of a friend, which also appeared anonymously ? a dingy little volume 'on gray paper with blunt type,' printed for E. Sargeant, at No. 39 Wall Street, opposite the United States Bank ? 'A New Translation, with Notes, of the Third Satire of Juvenal, to which are added Miscellaneous Poems, Original and Translated.' It would seem as if the authors were a little afraid of the sound of their own voices ; for in the only copy we have been able to find of this book, the names of the translator and his friend are written with ink on the title-page by some one in the secret, but have been obstinately erased, and are to be read only by those who have learned from R. W. Griswold's 'Poets of America' what the names must be. By applying this X-ray to the inky blot, the names are clearly to be read of John Duer and Clement C. Moore.

      . . .

      "But in the midst of all this social turmoil and hubbub, the life of Dr. Moore flowed tranquilly on in his home at Chelsea Farm, among his books, with his music and his flowers, like one of the many small streams that in his day pursued their quiet way through the fields of Greenwich and the streets of the bustling city. His more laborious hours were passed in his work as instructor in the Oriental languages and in Hebrew. In 1809 he published a Hebrew lexicon in two volumes -- the first that had appeared in America -- and thus became the pioneer in that study here.

      "In 1818 Dr. Moore presented to the General Theological Seminary of the Episcopal Church, as a free gift, the entire block bounded by Ninth Avenue, Twentieth and Twenty-first streets, and extending to the Hudson River. In 1821 he became Professor of the Oriental and Hebrew Languages in the seminary, and continued his work in that field during the rest of his life.

      "His Hebrew lexicon has long been superseded; his poems are forgotten ; but the noble foundation of the Theological Seminary -- a gift such as would hardly be possible for even a multi-millionaire to imitate in our crowded city to-day -- this gift to the world of scholars, and the 'Visit from St. Nicholas,' a gift to our children, will long keep green the memory of this learned, modest scholar and friend of his kind." [Footnote: Clarence Cook, Century Magazine, December, 1897, by permission of the Century Company.]

      Clement Clarke Moore received his A.B. from King's College in 1798, and his A.M. later. In 1829 the degree of LL.D. was conferred upon him. He was Trustee of the College from 1813 to 1857, and Clerk of the Board from 1815 to 1850. From 1821 to 1850 he was Professor of Hebrew and Greek Literature in the General Theological Seminary of the Protestant Episcopal Church ; from 1860-3, Professor Emeritus. Mr. Moore was an excellent musician, and for many years gave his services as organist in St. Peter's Church in Twentieth street, in what was then called the village of Greenwich ; a mural tablet here commemorates his virtues and benefactions. He was warden of St. Peter's in 1831 and 1841.

      [I have omitted the list of his publications.]
