J., will appear in the Year Books for 1913, 1914 and 1915. The present book contains the Register of Bap- tisms from 1666 to 1788. The Year Book for 1914 will contain the Marriages and the Register of Members; while the Burials, Minutes of the Consistory, etc., will appear in the Year Book for 191 5. The records, as they are here presented, have had unusual care in preparation and have withstood the criticism of reviewers, many years, without showing any flaw. As early as 1880 Theodore Melvin Banta obtained permission from the Consistory of the Bergen Church to copy the "Church book" and in 1888, Thomas Edward Vermilye, Jr., as a member of a special committee of the Society on Records of the Ancient Dutch Churches of America, made a literal translation on loose leaves which is now in the library, marked for identification. Copy A, page 1-2 15, and which contains the "Register of Members and Baptisms". In the same year Dingman Versteeg, our present library clerk, copied 2 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY copied and translated the Marriages, Burial Records, and Minutes of the Consistory, marked Copy A, page 217-314. Both of these translations were made under the direction and supervision of Theodore Melvin Banta as chairman of the committee, above referred to, of which Mr. Vermilye was a member. In the years 1899 to 1903 a tabular transcript of the above-mentioned records was made in a bound volume by Sterling Potter, and marked Copy B, under Mr. Banta's personal direc- tion as Secretary of the Society. This book was then taken over to Jersey City, carefully compared with and corrected from the original by Dingman Versteeg, covering a period of many days. The Reverend Cor- nelius Brett, D. D., present pastor of the Bergen Church, has spoken with full appreciation of the "patient, painstaking work" of Mr. Versteeg and is on record as to the accuracy of this contribution to the colonial history of the church and New Jersey. The Register of Baptisms, printed in this volume, is complete, commencing January i, 1666, continuing to December 18, 1788. There appears to be a break, from 1669 to 1673, of four years, during which time the children may have been entered upon the records of New York or other churches. In after years it fre- quently occurs that children, born at Bergen, were baptized in New York, the record appearing "baptized in New York". In presenting this Register of Baptisms in tabular form, all notes given in the original record of a genea- logical value have been printed as foot notes at the bottom of each page. Items such as: — "born at 2 P. M." and "Born on Thursday at midnight" have been purposely omitted. In two instances where children were born "out of wedlock" wherein the sur- name assumed by the child is not given, the entries have also been omitted because of no genealogical value. All names have been faithfully copied as they ap- pear with all the variations in spellings and errors of the voorlesers; and where omissions occur, even though possible to supply, no inserts have been made. The record is thought to be truly represented. All entries have BERG EN RECORD S 3 have been arranged in the order of their dates of baptism and consecutively numbered for convenience in in- dexing. This work is published in the most likely form which it would have assumed if printed at the time the original entries were made by Bonaventure and Abraham Elzevier, who were the most famous printers of that time. The Elzeviers or Elseviers were a family of famous printers and booksellers of Leyden and after- ward Amsterdam; no fewer than fifteen of whom carried on the business in succession from 1580 to 1712. Their Pliny (1635), Firgil (1636) and Cicero (1642) are the masterpieces of their press, and in elegance of design, neatness, clearness and regularity of type, and beauty of paper cannot be surpassed. As far as practicable their typography and all of the peculiar characteristics of their works have been care- fully followed. The use of catch-words, signature letter- ing and half measure foot notes have been imitated exactly. The paper used in this book has been made to imitate the old paper of that day and the button of the Society is reproduced as a watermark. All of the illustrations have been made and engraved after the style of wood cuts then so popular. These cuts were engraved from photographs and descriptions and are historically correct as to detail and ensemble. The index was carefully prepared by William B. Van Alstyne, M.D., a member of our society who makes a specialty in statistical and genealogical work. The EYNDE ^^■^^^~Tj^-2:^y- PRESENT DOMINE OF THE REFORMED PROTESTANT DUTCH CHURCH JERSEY CITY. NEW JERSEY THE REFORMED PROTESTANT DUTCH CHURCH of BERGEN IN NEW JERSEY FOUNDED 1660 # -^ Wi ^ ^^^b m Wi r*sij» nyt w m Historical Note HE second Indian War in 1655 resulted in the destruction of every bouwerij on the west of the North River. The inhabitants fled to the shelter of New Amsterdam and only the Aborigines were left in possession. As this was the second incident of this character in the early history of New Netherland, Peter Stuyvesant wisely ordered that no settlement should be allowed on the west side of the river except in concentrated villages, which could be easily protected and de- fended. This decree opened the way for a peti- tion presented to the Council at New Amsterdam during the summer of 1660 praying for permission to found a village on the highlands about two miles from the North River. The petition was granted and between August and October of that year the village of Bergen was founded. The lines of the village are still marked by the streets of Jersey City which surround and pass through it. An open square was reserved with two streets running nearly north and south and east and west meeting in the center. The village was protected by THE HOLLAND SOCIETY by a rectangular palisade, with a gate at the center of each side. Later a well was dug in the middle of the open square and a corner lot was reserved for a school. With the village came also the church and the school: in fact a condition made by each pioneer in accepting a grant of village lot or outlying farm was, that ministers of the Reformed faith should be provided and the edu- cation of the children secured. In 1661 the first municipality was created in the form of an inferior court whose decisions were subject to appeal in the general court in New Amsterdam. In 1662 Englebert Steenhuysen was engaged as voorleser w^^^sm^^'ss^mmsimsimmm-mimmsa ^r^d school- master.

There contract re- to teach the his own to conduct each Lord's ing from a sermon furnish ed is also on file BERGEN RECORDS 7 file in Albany a subscription list dated 1662'. In 1664 the record of members of the church in full communion begins. The earliest records are in the handwriting of D""" Henricus Selyns, a minister of the church of Breuckelen, Long Island, and later, after 1682, of the church of New York. In this original list we find the names of eighteen women and nine men. The record is evidently a copy from some earlier docu- ment and the break from the beautiful handwriting of the dominie to current entries is plainly discerned. The earliest services were probably conducted, like the school, in a private house: but tradition says there was built, within a few years, a log house, which served the double purpose of school and church. The first stone church was octagonal. ^ It stood south of the village just outside the palisade. One side of the interior was occupied by the pulpit opposite the door: three sides on the right and left of the door were provided with plain wooden seats, while the open space was filled with straight back chairs. The bell' hung in the peak of the roof and was rung by a rope which hung in the center. A succession of voorlesers followed Steenhuysen who left no records. In 1665 Reynier Bastiaense Van Giesen was installed and for forty-two years continued in office. He was succeeded in 1708 by Adriaen Vermeule who served for twenty-eight years and who formerly occupied the same position and that of town clerk at Niew Haarlem. In 1726 P. Van Benthuyzen began his work. After twenty-five years the last voorleser, Abraham Sickels, was installed. During his term of office the first pastor arrived and thereafter the name of "clerk" was substituted for the old title "voorleser". The first clerk was John Collard who received a salary of £2, 15 shillings per annum. During 'Ed. Note: This list is reproduced I Island, preached the dedicatory ser- on pages l6, 17 and 18.

The condition of the call was that he was to study in a university of Holland and receive ordination from the Classis of Amsterdam. He returned in 1757 and assumed his duties as pastor. He resided in a stone parsonage which stood on the site of the porch of the present church. After a service of thirty-two jears, Mr. Jackson was compelled to retire on account of a nervous strain. The consistory secured him the use BERGEN RECORDS 9 use of the parsonage during his life, and he remained twenty-four years as the ward of his old friends.

B lO THE HOLLAND SOCIETY was built', on the old Dutch models, in 1773, and in 1 84 1 it was found that this edifice was too small to accommodate the growing congregation. As the build- ing stood in the cemetery, surrounded by graves, it could not be enlarged without disturbing the remains of the departed. The old building was torn down and its successor erected on a portion of the old "Glebe". The old stones from the first two churches were used in the new walls. It was dedicated in 1842^ and still remains as the house of worship of the modern congre- gation. When D''- Taylor retired in 1871, R^"^- James L. Amerman was installed as pastor. He remained only five years, when he listened to a call from Japan and went out to be professor of theology in the theological seminary at Tokio. In August, 1876, the R^"- Cornelius Brett, D.D., was installed as pastor and still remains at his post. The Rev.

BERGEN RECORDS I I THE RECORD OF 1662' A Translation and Reproduction of the Original OCTOR Cornelius Brett, the present pastor of the Dutch Reformed Church, in Jersey City, in his his- torical sketch, refers to an early subscription list now on file in Albany. Through the courtesy of A. J. F. van Laer, archivist in charge of the manuscripts section of the New York State Library in Albany, New York, the document was located and photographed. This record has never been photographically reproduced before but a translation appears in the Documents Relative to the Colonial History of New York, Vol. 13, page 232- 233. In that translation the name of the well-known notary Tielman van Vleeck is printed, unfortunately, both in the signature to the petition and in the list of subscribers, as Tielman van Neeck. The original document went through the recent Albany fire and was fortunately not destroyed. After the letter from Mr. van Laer of June 22, 1912, explaining this fact follows a translation of the petition which is photographically reproduced on pages 16, 17 and 18. New York State Educational Department NEW YORK STATE LIBRARY, James I. Wyer, Jr., Director. MANUSCRIPTS SECTION, A. J. F. VAN Laer, Archivist. Albany, N. Y., June 22, 1912. Mr. Edward Van W'inkle, 90 West Street, New York City. Dear Sir: — At Mr. Hu3'ck's' request we have had photographs made of the "List of those at Bergen who subscribed for a clergyman," of 1662, which is found on pages 279 and 280 of volume 10 of our New York 'Edmund N. Huyck, Esq., Vice President of the Holland Society, Albany County. 12 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY New York Colonial Manuscripts. I understand that the photo- graphs have been sent to Mr. Huyck, so that you will doubtless receive them soon. Mr. Huyck has also asked me to give you a statement regarding the manner in which this particular document was saved from the flames on March 29, 191 1. Inasmuch as this document was mounted in a volume which was carried out after the fire, together with hundreds of other volumes which were more or less damaged by the fire, there is nothing to be said that applies especially to this document. As you will notice from the photographs, the document is badly burned at the top. All the documents that were bound with it present the same appearance and the damage is accounted for by the fact that the volume, together with five other volumes of Council Minutes, stood on a high shelf, immediately under a wooden gallery, which was swept by the flames and completely destroyed. The fire apparently worked its way down, leaving a sort of a mound in the center of the wall case, of which the shelf just mentioned formed the highest point. Other volumes of manuscripts, which stood on lower shelves, near the center of the case, suffered comparatively little; they were evidently covered by debris, or had fallen in a heap, before the flames could reach them. On the other hand, many volumes, which were placed on lower shelves near the ends of the room, and in a double-faced case in the middle of the room, were completely destroyed. All that was left of the manuscript collec- tion was after the fire carefully dug out of the ashes and debris and removed to the old armory, now occupied by the Catholic Union, on Eagle Street and Hudson Avenue, where the water- soaked documents were taken from their mounts and dried be- tween blotting paper. At present we are busy repairing, remount- ing and arranging the thousands of colonial and state documents that were saved. Many will look neater and fresher than I have ever known them before; on the other hand, thousands of docu- ments, among them the manuscript reproduced for you, will forever bear the marks of the terrible ordeal they went through. Very truly yours, (Signed) A. J. F. VAN Laer, Archivist. Petition BERGEN RECORDS I3 PETITION OF THE MAGISTFL\TES OF BER- GEN, ASKING TO BE PROVIDED WITH A CLERGYMAN To THE Noble, Very Worshipful, his Honor, the Director-General and the Honorable Council of New Netherland Show with due reverence the Schepens of the village of Bergen, that whereas your petitioners have observed and considered the fatherly direction and care of your Hon'''" Worships regarding the erection of churches and school-houses, more especially that a God fearing man and preacher be secured to promote and teach the fear of the Lord in the community of Bergen and its jurisdiction; Therefore, the Schepens have thought it advisable, each for himself, to propose it, to learn what every man would be willing to pay yearly of his free will, affection and love for God's holy and blessed word, to have a good teacher, till such a time, when the Noble Lords-Directors of the Incorporated West-India Company shall begin, according to the custom of the country, to levy tithes. After the Schepens had made these propositions, the below named persons have voluntarily declared, that they will give a yearly contribution; the sum to be paid by such voluntary offerings may be calculated at 417 guilders in wampum, but there are among these people some, who have expressed themselves willing to do more according to their abilities if God our Lord would bless them and Increase their prosperity; among the others, opposite whose names no sums are mentioned, there are some very willing, some very unwise, those, who are willing, are the majority and declare, that when a preacher comes, they too would do their best according to their circumstances, like the others. Whereas the petitioners do not know, whether the people of Haersimons* come under this jurisdiction; therefore the petitioners cannot report, what they would do, but the Schepens find it advisable and •Ahasimus. 14 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY and very necessary, that the village be provided with a preacher and submit to the mature consideration and decision of your Hon'''^ Worships, that it might be notified to the Noble Lords-Directors, our Patroons, by the next ships. Your Hon''''' Worships know, with what courage the village of Bergen has been established by the community and that the same has maintained itself at great expense to the inhabitants, without any outlay to the Lords-Directors. The community is therefore of opinion, that their Noble Honors should take that into consideration and therefore assist the village of Bergen so much readier according to their discretion and to send one over for one or two years at their expense; during that time the land will with God's help have increased in value, so that then that which the good hearted community will liberally give, can be taken for assistance. Awaiting your Hon*"'' Worships' decision hereon the petitioners remain Your Noble, Honorable Worships' humble servants TiELMAN VAN VlEECK Machghyel Jansen' Herman Smedman Casper Steinmetz.

Feb. I 1789 INDEX OF THE BAPTISMAL REGISTER of the REFORMED PROTESTANT DUTCH CHURCH OF BERGEN Prepared and Arranged by WILLIAM B. FAN ALSTYNE, M. D. Owing to complications due to varieties in spelling baptismal names and surnames, a peculiar method has been used in the preparation of this index. All varia- tions of the same family name have been embraced under one heading, indexed, as far as practical under the form in most common use and following it, when possible, by a contrasting form. All variations of the same individual name have been grouped under one heading, whenever possible under the form then in gen- eral use and include middle names and patronymics in combination with family names. Those entering the names in the church record not only varied the orthog- raphy and the use of patronymics but occasionally made wrong entries; for instance, baptism 235 is that of a child of Jan Hermensen and Neeltje Jans, the spon- sors being Hessel Pieterse and "Elizabeth Eleysbeth". "Eleysbeth" is not a family name nor a patronymic and the sponsor in this case was probably either Elizabeth Gerrits, mother of Hessel Pieterse, or his wife, Elizabeth Claes. Still another instance is number 516 where a child of Harmanis Stymets and "Elsje Couwenhoof" is baptised. Harmanis married November 2, 1733, at New York City, Elsje Heermans, baptised there Novem- ber 5, 1 701, daughter of Folkert Heermans and Margrita Eckeson. Harmanis Stymets and Elsje Heermans appear as the parents of other later children baptised in New York City and she was not a widow "Couwenhoof" when she married Stymets. Appended is a list of the surnames occurring under more than two variations: THE HOLLAND SOCIETY INDEX Ackerman, Ackermans, Ackkerman, Akkerman. Aertse, Aarsen, Aert, Aerts.

Badge BADGE OF THE HOLLAND SOCIETY OF NEW YORK ADOPTED MARCH 30, 1SS7 The most significant medal, from an historical point of view, which was ever struck in Holland, is the so- called "Beggars' Medal." It is the memorial of the very first steps of that march towards civil and religious liberty in which the men of the Netherlands, after heroic struggles, finally led the world. And, therefore, it is a most appropriate token for us to wear, who have received in largest measure, in this New Republic, the benefits of the noble conflict of our Dutch forefathers. In Bizot's Medallic History of the Republic of Holland, published at Amsterdam in 1690, the place of honor is given to this famous "Geuzenpenning." The following description of its origin is translated from that work, with a few additions from the accounts given by Prof. J. W. Kitchin, of Oxford. "In the year 1565, immediately after the decrees of the Council of Trent were promulgated, Philip II. determined to put them in force throughout his do- minions. Accordingly, he now made a more vehement attack BADGE OF THE SOCIETY 1 39 attack upon the reformers; and then it was, in 1566, that the Netherland nobles, led by Count Brederode, signed the famous 'Compromise,' with which the open rebellion of the provinces begins. Margaret of Parma was Philip's regent in the Low Countries. Before her Brederode appeared with the Protest against the Inquisition and other innovations which the King pro- posed to introduce into Holland. He was accompanied by three hundred noblemen, who had bound themselves together for the preservation of the Liberties of the Provinces. The Duchess of Parma appeared to be much disturbed at the sight of such a multitude of noble remonstrants, but the Count of Barlemont, who stood beside her, begged her not to be alarmed, 'For,' said he, in French, 'they are only beggars.' "The next day, the 6th of April, 1566, as the con- federates were sitting together at dinner, and talking of a name for their new Party, they remembered Barlemont's sneer, and cried out, ' Vivent les Gueux!' — 'Hurrah for the Beggars!' When dinner was over, Brederode, having hung a beggar's wallet around his neck, filled a wooden bowl with wine and drank the health of the company, declaring that, for his part, he was ready to sacrifice life, property, everything, in defence of his country's freedom. The room rang with applause, — 'Hurrah for the Beggars!' The cup was passed from hand to hand. Every man drank the same toast and made the same pledge of devotion. And thus it was that the name of the Gueux, or Beggars, which has become famous throughout Europe, had its origin at a social feast; for it often happens that the most important and serious affairs begin amid jests and laughter. "Soon afterward the men of the new Party appeared at Brussels, dressed in coarse gray cloth, with wooden cups attached to their belts, and with this medal HANGIXG ABOUT THEIR NECKS." One of these medals was worn by William of Orange at the time of his assassination. The following is the description, translated by the first Secretary of the Society, Mr. Geo. W. Van Siclen, from Van Loon's Nederlandsche Penningen. "The 140 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY "The nobles assembled several times in different places to find methods to protect the liberties of their country from the perils which menaced them from all sides. Those who showed themselves most zealous and most ardent upon these occasions were Henry of Brederode; Louis of Nassau, brother of the Prince of Orange; Florent of Pallant, Count of Culemburg; and William, Count of Bergen. They pushed the affair so far that meetings were held, first at Breda, and afterward at Hoogstraten. "At the latter place several discontented nobles pro- jected an alliance, which, going from hand to hand, was in a short time accepted and signed by more than four hundred persons, all of whom promised to be in Brussels on a certain day. To give greater eclat to this league, Henry of Brederode, as chief of the confederates, found it convenient to make his entry into that city on the 3d of April, a.d. 1566, accompanied by Count Louis of Nassau and many nobles, followed by a great number of servants. The fourth day of that month was employed in preparations and in awaiting the Counts of Bergen and of Culemburg. Although on the following day these lords had not yet arrived, the con- federates did not delay in demanding an audience. It was granted to them, and the Princess-Regent appointed the hour of noon to avoid the tumultuous concourse of the populace. "The time named being near, Brederode and Count Louis were seen to leave the residence of Culemburg and to walk with a decent gravity toward the court, preceded by more than three hundred gentlemen, of whom they themselves formed the last rank. When they arrived before the Duchess, Brederode spoke for all, and, having finished his harangue, he presented to Her Highness a petition signed in the name of all that illustrious troop. In this petition, after having repre- sented their obedience and their fidelity to the King, they declared that, notwithstanding the hatred that their procedure would very likely draw upon them, they would risk, in the service of the King, showing to Her Highness the dangerous condition of affairs, and warning her, if the protection of the Inquisition were continued, BADGE OF THE SOCIETY I41 continued, of the terrible consequences which they foresaw would shake the State to its foundations. They demanded, secondly, that the edict of the King relat- ing to the Inquisition, and relating to religion in gen- eral, be reformed by the Assembly of the States- General, and that, while awaiting this, the execution of this edict should be suspended, as a protection against the sad evils of which it was already, and of which it would be more and more, the fertile source. "The Regent, hiding as well as possible the uneasi- ness and indignation which this affair caused her, received the petition, and replied to the supplicants that she would examine into their demands with the Lords of the Council, anci that in a short time she would let them know her decision. With this response, the confederate lords returned to Culemburg's residence in the same order and with the same gravity with which they had left it. "After the Regent had deliberated on the petition of the nobles, that Princess replied the following day in writing that she would represent to the King their first demand in the most favorable manner possible, but that she was obliged to refuse absolutely the second, because the matter was not in her power. "While this affair was thus treated at the palace of the Princess, the populace insulted the confederate nobles by the opprobrious epithet of Giieux, which those who understood French badly changed into Geuzen, which afterward became very common as the name of a party or sect. Others say that the author of the sobriquet was the Baron of Barlemont, who, seeing the Regent surprised at the sight of so many nobles, tried to encourage her b}' saying, '' Ce nc sont que des gueiix.' However that may be, this name was received by the nobles as a precious epithet, and soon became the most honorable title of that illustrious league. "The 6th of April, Brederode, being at dinner with other lords of his party at Culemburg's, put around his neck a wallet, and filling with wine a wooden cup, like that worn by the beggars, made all the guests follow his example. He declared to them at the same time that. 142 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY that, while always remaining faithful to his King, not only would he risk everything in defence of the liberties of the country, although he might be reduced to carry- ing a wallet, but he was even ready to give up his life in so good a cause. All those who were at the feast, having in turn taken the wallet and the cup, made the same declaration one after the other, in the midst of a continual cry of ' Vivent les Gueuxl'' "Several of these nobles appeared the next day in the streets dressed in gray frieze, and carrying at the girdle, as a badge of honor, a small wallet and a little wooden cup or calabash. "Then (a.d. 1566), as now (a.d. 1732), the wooden bowl was in Brabant, like the wallet, a distinctive mark, and, so to speak, a livery of beggars. Furnished with this necessary utensil of their profession, they went certain days of the week to the cloisters, where, after having taken part in the catechising, they each re- ceived, according as he had answered well or badly, a portion of soup left over by the monks. "It was by this low and despised method that the Professor, Thomas Stapleton, was able to reach the highest degree of erudition, notwithstanding his poverty and low birth. Sure, thanks to his porringer, of victuals which were absolutely necessary to him, he applied himself first to the languages, and afterwards to the higher sciences, with such success that he was honored with the most distinguished professorship in the Uni- versity of Louvain. He never forgot his porringer. In the feasts which they gave when he was elevated to this important charge, not only did he then cause the first toast to be drunk in that cup, then ornamented with a foot of silver, but he desired that after his death it should be added to the rich ornaments of his marble tomb, as an example and as a beacon for other distin- guished men of genius, the meanness of whose extrac- tion might seem to condemn them to darkness. "The reader must pardon me this digression, which I would not have made but from the same motive which caused this great man to parade his beggar's bowl. "The gourd or bottle had its origin from the usage made BADGE OF THE SOCIETY I43 made of it by the pilgrims — that class of people who, to perform a penance or to fulfil certain vows, under- take a journey to the distant shrine of some saint, like that of St. James in Spain or of Loretto in Italy. They are obliged to go there begging by the way, and they carry this bottle-gourd, or calabash, attached to the girdle, for the purpose of carrying water for their use when they have to traverse dry and arid parts of the country. For this reason these allied nobles made use both of the porringer and the wallet as an emblem of poverty, and to turn into pleasantry the name of beggars, which had been given to them with so much indignity. This is not all. These lords, wishing to engrave on each other's memory the vow which each had made to defend the privileges of the country, even to carry the wallet, took pride in wearing on the breast certain medals attached to ribbons, and very often joined with a porringer and a gourd." The form adopted by the Holland Society is a fac- simile of the one to which are attached two such por- ringers and a gourd or bottle, and shows on its face the armed bust of Philip II. of Spain, with the first half of the motto, "en tout fidelles au roy," and on the reverse two wallets, between the straps of which are two hands joined, with the remainder of the motto, "jusQUES A PORTER LA BESACE," together with the date, 1566, the figures of which are, however, separated, one in each corner formed by the crossed hands and wallets. Plaster casts of originals of various sizes, in the Museum of Antiquities in Amsterdam, wxre kindly presented to the Society by Dr. T. H. Blom Coster, physician to the Queen of the Netherlands. The die, which has been cut by Tiffany &: Co., is the property of the Society. The medals, including the cups, the flagon, the orange ribbon, and the pin, can be furnished in silver for six dollars (^6) each. They can also be supplied in gold for twenty-eight dollars ($28) each. Members can obtain orders from the Secretary and therewith be furnished with the Badge by addressing Tiffany & Co.

This consists of a shield of gold one-half inch high bearing the Lion of Holland in red enamel. Members can obtain them of the Bailey, Banks & Biddle Co., corner of Chestnut and 12th Streets, Philadelphia, Pa., in silver gilt at one dollar each, or in 14 k. gold at two dollars and seventy-five cents each. -■L J ^:*^.ltV-» '^nrW tnj S «. t, W ni.ti-m^iv -m=( V-Sw i^^wm ™r nMi t^ uJ"ferfVSr6t, ■, ^tk ^ "^^rii^wJPc ifffTWhiffY ■'^■^ ^rY T '«f fv^nwi rp" (g^lJ^I^^'Tf '^'*^_^^^^^ ADDITIONS TO THE LIBRARY AND COL- LECTIONS To February i, 1913 From Wm.

CORRESPONDING SECRETARY 1912 OF THE HOLLAND SOCIETY OF NEW YORK I^^^^^pfe- 1 ■ •s*^;^'^*^^^*^ THE TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL DINNER OF THE POUGHKEEPSIE MEMBERS N OCTOBER the third, The Relief of the Siege of Leyden was fittingly commemorated by the Poughkeep- sie District members of the Hol- land Society who assembled in the small dining room at the Nel- son House, Poughkeepsie, for their twenty-third Annual Dinner. There were present from Poughkeepsie City: I. Reynolds Adriance, John E. Adriance, Hon. Frank Hasbrouck, Martin Heermance, E. Covert Hulst and Dr. J. Wilson Poucher; from New Paltz and vicinity, Abram B. Du Bois, Jesse Elting, Jacob Elting and Frank J. LeFevre; and from near-by places in Dutchess County, George S. Van Vliet, Peter R. Sleight and David B. Sleight. Recording Secretary Edward Van Winkle was the only officer of the Society present; Treasurer Arthur H. Van Brunt, Corresponding Secretary John T. Conover and President Henry L. Bogert all sent their regrets. Presi- dent Bogert had written informing the Committee of recent deaths in his family, which would make it im- possible for him to be present, although as he wrote: — "It will be a particularly hard trial for me to be absent in this year when the Society has favored me with the highest ofHce in its gift and when I most wish to show my appreciation of it." In his letter of regret he wrote further 206 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY further: — "I am most reluctantly brought to the con- clusion which prevents me from participating in the twenty-third Annual Dinner of the Dutchess County Branch of the Holland Society. This determination causes me to feel that I am kept away from one of the most attractive and enjoyable famil}^ parties that the Holland Society afl'ords and in comparison with which there is no other society to be named as competitor. Whoever is entitled to the credit of establishing this annual celebration must be enshrined in the closest affection of the Poughkeepsie district members; and this is a position of no uncertain stamp when one con- siders the hospitality and open-heartedness of the good fellows who gather around that sumptuously laden board, abounding in good fare, good company and good humor. There can be but one explanation for absence from such an occasion and that is the inabilit}- of the invited guest to be present. If he could, he would come and when he cannot he must have the commiserating sympathy of those more fortunately present. "As the lights twinkle out over New York, it is but natural for me to anticipate the picture of that jovial gathering where, from Adriance to Zabriskie, the al- phabet is so well represented and the preparations for the procession which winds down the stairs into the cozy dining-room made memorable by past festivals; then, if everyone has properly enjoyed the greeting of Dr. Poucher and the jolly hand clasp of Jesse Elting, there is an inevitable leaning forward to catch some- thing recent (and perhaps pungent) from Heermance and his neighbor, and a growing impatience for the first notes of 'Hot Cockles,' without which no celebration would be complete. "The missing Year Books may be mentioned with a dubious shake of the head and a question how far the postal or freight facilities may be taxed for the antici- pated burdens, and relief will be found in the encourag- ing words of the new Recording Secretary, whose initial efforts in book making for the Holland Society have been most auspiciously begun and will make a new step in advance. The Treasurer will drop darkly veiled hints about his difficulties with other watch dogs of the treasury POUGHKEEPSIE CELEBRATION 20J treasury and will deliver friendly jabs at the other officers, who cannot complain that they are made to contribute so deftly to the pleasantries of the evening. And, just before the benediction, a question will doubt- less be proposed for discussion at the twenty-fourth Annual Dinner, 'Was Hasbrouck named after Hutspot or Hutspot after Hasbrouck? All in favor, signif}- in the usual manner.' " Vice-President Poucher presided at the Dinner; and there were the usual informal, extemporaneous talks by various members. Secretary Van Winkle had brought with him, and passed around the table for the inspection of those present, sample pages and proofs of the various cuts of the Year Book for 1913, which he promised to be ready for distribution shorth' after the Annual Meeting of that year; and he gave a very interesting account of the proposed contents of the Book and of the Bergen Church Records and the history of the Bergen Church, which would be published in it. The attendance at the Dinner was somewhat smaller than usual, partly accounted for by the absence of several, who would otherwise have been present had there not been held on the same night meetings of the congregations of the two Dutch Churches in Pough- keepsie to take action upon their union into one Church. Martin Heermance had to leave during the Dinner to attend one of these meetings. He came back before it was over and reported that the two Churches had voted to unite. Frank Hasbrouck spoke of action taken by him in respect to the publication of the Shawangunk Church Records, and he with Jesse Elting and Frank J. LeFevre were appointed a Committee to accomplish this purpose. Dr. Poucher gave a very interesting account of his work with reference to recording, preserving and pub- lishing the inscriptions on tombstones in the old abandoned and neglected family and church burying grounds in the vicinity of Poughkeepsie. George Van Vliet spoke some very appropriate and kind words in memory of Edward T. Hulst, a most loyal 2o8 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY loyal member of the Society, who died during the last year. At the suggestion of Dr. Poucher that his successor in the Vice-Presidency should be named, on the motion of Mr. Hasbrouck, I. Reynolds Adriance was unani- mously recommended for that office, to be elected at the next Annual Meeting of the Society. The Dinner was a most successful one and was greatly enjoyed by all present. The Menu follows: "Having en witbrood Leiden heeft geen nood." Little Neck Clams on Half Shell Celery Radishes Amontillado Green Turtle Soup, Madeira Olives Salted Nuts Vin de Graves Crab Flakes a la Nelson Hutspot Pontet Canet Holland Punch Broiled Guinea Chicken Grilled Sweet Potatoes Green Corn French Peas Tomato and Lettuce Mayonnaise Nesselrode Pudding Cake Roquefort Crackers Demi Tasse Mumm's Extra Dry Smoker THE NINTH INFORMAL MEETING HE Ninth Annual Smoker of the Society was held in the north ball room of Hotel Astor on Tuesday evening, November the Twenty-sixth. It was the largest informal gathering in the history of the society; four hundred and fifty members and friends were delightfully entertained. Mr. Evert Jansen Wendell in his inimitable style was the master of ceremonies and kept the performers to their tasks as capably and with as much ease as Bunty who pulls-the-strings. After calling the members' attention to the "perfectly virtuous" program which he modestly admitted he was responsi- ble for, he introduced our President as "the man who has done more for our society than any other living member;" who, amid considerable applause, appeared on the platform to welcome the members and guests. After the applause of welcome and appreciation had subsided, President Bogert touched briefly upon matters of common interest, stating that he had attended the dinner of the Empire State Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, November the twenty-fifth, and that he had received the following banquet invitations which he had accepted in the name of the society: The Colonial Order of Acorn, St. Andrew's Society of the State 2IO THE HOLLAND SOCIETY State of New York, St. Nicholas Society of New York, Hudson County Branch of The Holland Society, Penn- sylvania Society — a worthy list for a hungry man. Aye, verily! But who requires nourishment after the menu which was so well served later in the evening? The following performers entertained, each doing their share to help pass a most pleasant evening. Eddie Clarke, Madeline Livingston, Mart King, Marie Carlton. Gallando, Palmer Trio, Frederic Watson, Eccentric Juggler The Girl at the Piano A Few Stories Ballads Comedy Clay Modeller Those Musical Girls At the Piano There was a something that held the crowd together till an hour which made it possible for each to tell his anxious family awaiting at home, that he got home early; for if a little earlier it would have been late but as it was a little later it was early. ^'^i^mg,^^ ;. THE FIRST ANNUAL DINNER OF THE HUDSON COUNTY MEMBERS LTHOUGH Jersey City and Hudson County have been repre- sented by a Vice-president since the very beginning of the society it was not until the election of James S. Newkirk as Vice-presi- dent of the Society from Hudson County on April 6, 191 1, that a Hudson County branch of the society was actually formed. A Hudson County organization had been discussed for some time, but it took someone with Jim's enthusiasm to wake up the Dutchmen about twenty-five strong, who last year answered an invitation to meet ?nd organize the Hudson County Branch of the Holland Society of New York. This branch is now a reality and on Tuesday evening, December the tenth, 191 2, cele- brated their First Annual Dinner. The old gymnasium of the Jersey City Club, Crescent and Clairmont Ave- nues, was beautifully decorated almost past recogniton, with the Holland trycolour and American flags. Of course, Jim was responsible. A business meeting was called just before the dinner and after the usual routine matters were dispensed with, Mr. De Witt Van Buskirk was elected President of the branch to serve for the ensuing year. This election carries 212 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY carries with it the nomination of Mr. Van Buskirk as Vice-president of The Holland Society of New York from Hudson County, he being the unanimous choice of the members residing in that county. C. G. Newkirk was elected Secretary-Treasurer. After the close of business, the following members and some seventeen or more guests took their places at round tables for dinner: Henry L. Bogert, President of the Society, Edward Van Winkle, Recording Secretary, Hamilton Vreeland, Vice- president and President of Hudson County Branch, Dr. H. J. Bogardus, Henry H. Brinkerhoff, William Brinkerhoff, David Schenck Jacobus, James Stewart Newkirk, Clarence Garfield Newkirk, Arthur P. New- kirk, Halsey Vreeland Newkirk, Richard Garrett Sip, Thomas E. Van Winkle, Daniel Van Winkle, Marshall Van Winkle, A. A. Van Winkle, William Van Keuren, Graham Van Keuren, Charles A. Van Keuren, Hamilton Vreeland, Charles Musk Vreeland, Nicholas Vreeland, Dr. Clarence L. Vreeland, Joseph Warren Vreeland, Jacob Rynier Wortendyke, Reynier Jacob Wortendyke. President Henry L. Bogert was the guest of honor; he sat at the head table with Vice-president Hamilton Vreeland — who acted as toastmaster — Recording Secre- tary Van Winkle and Dr. D. S. Jacobus. The speeches were informal and impromptu; every one had an oppor- tunity to say something. The Vreelands and Van Winkles were exhibited to the third power; the Brinker- hoffs were heard from on the square. President Bogert explained briefly some of the causes for delay in the issuance of the Year Books, and asked for a rising vote on the question of issuing the Year Books, one for each year or combining them two to three years in one volume. It appeared to be unanimous that one volume a year was the desire, provided the issuing of the books was no further delayed. After the last speaker was finished and Hamilton Vreeland had run out of stories every one joined hands and in a round-rosy, sang Auld Lang Syne.

The usual good service was varied by the addition of Hutspot which was made a feature of the occasion, in that six tremendously large iron pots borne on beams resting on the shoulders of twelve strong waiters were circulated around and between the tables to the tune of "Wien Neerlandsch Bloed." This new feature was greatly appreciated and thoroughly enjoyed. The customary decorations pleased the eye as in the past. The guests of the Society were grouped about the President, Henry Lawrence Bogert: Hon. William J. Gaynor, Mayor of New York; Jonkheer J. Loudon, Minister of the Netherlands; Andrew Carne- gie; Hon.

The Half Moon was bound on the same errand, but upon reaching the latitude of the supposed passage, the arctic cold compelled the little vessel to a southerly course along the coast, and the 3d of September found her at anchor in Sandy Hook Bay. Three days later she passed through the Narrows, and on the eleventh rode opposite the "mouth of the Kills." On the thir- teenth, still bent on a "way to the Eastern Seas," she passed up the river and on the nineteenth her keel, so far as we know, was the first, belonging to white men, to part the waters so far as Albany, where a "shoaling channel and inconstant soundings" enforced the con- viction that this was not the way to Cathay. The present search was ended. Upon the return down the river the second of October found the Half Moon opposite Hoboken where the Dutch mate, looking out from the poop of the doughty little vessel saw upon the port bow the site of the future metropolis of the Western Hemisphere, and revolved in his mind the dawning fact that after all they had found more than they sought, and the report home, in Novem- ber of the same year, of the newly discovered regions "vast in extent and abounding in beaver and other valuable 'Written for the Holland Society of New York by Edward Seymour Wilde, A. M. 226 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY valuable furs," confirmed this in the minds of the Dutch merchants who had already reaped a stimulating profit from their peltry trade with Russia. In his history of these events Brodhead states that quick upon the trail of the Half Moon some merchants of Amsterdam immediately fitted out, at their private risk, another vessel which sailed from the Texel the following summer (1610) well provided with a cargo of goods suitable for traffic with the Indians living on the great " River of the Mountains. " This vessel, Brodhead continues, was manned with a part of Hudson's old crew and was probably intrusted to the command of the contemplative Dutch mate whose acquaintance we made on the poop of the Half Moon. The merchant trade of Holland with her new posses- sion, prompted by the commercial spirit of the Dutch, now grew apace while the States General continued the search for a northwest passage. Notably: About this time Captains Hendrick Christiaensen and Adriaen Block were put in command of the Fortune and the Tiger, vessels owned and equipped by Amsterdam merchants and designed for the Indian trade along the Mauritius River, as the Hudson had then come to be called by the Dutch. The Tiger was accidentally burned at Manhattan, and Block having erected a few huts near the southerly point of the island, to accommodate himself and his companions, immediately set about building a small yacht, which he named the O^irust, to replace his loss. This work occupied them during the winter of 1613. In the spring Block cruised along the Sound in the Restless, and, falling in with Christiaensen at Cape Cod, he exchanged for the Fortune and returned to Holland to report his discoveries. "This was six years before the first Puritan English Colonists landed at Plymouth Rock. " Other merchants of North Holland sent over their vessel, bound for the same destination, in charge of Captain Cornells Jacobsen May. Brodhead closes the chapter in which he narrates these events with the words : "Of all the early followers of Hudson in the explora- tion TWENTY- EI G HTH ANNUAL BANQUET 22J tion of New Netherland the honored names of only two are now commemorated by Block Island and Cape May; yet the annalist of commercial New York will ever gratefully record the '"Restless'' as the pioneer vessel launched by white men upon her waters, and as her first sYap-hnWdcv Adriaen Block.'' And, perhaps, Brod- head might have added that Block was also the first house-builder on Manhattan, for his precise words are, "a few huts were now first erected near the southern point of Manhattan Island." Dr. Griffis says that these first coming Dutchmen "took a hint from native architecture and, with the aid of the Indians, built huts of timber and bark,'" and he adds, apropos to the present occasion, "This original Holland Society ate dinners with keen appetites and splendid digestion." As to the "huts," it seems that these habitations of timber and bark were simply fashioned very much as those we see in early prints of Manhattan, indeed these may be among those so portrayed, with gable to the front and high pitch roof, indicative of the Dutch contribution to that composite architecture which was certainly unpretending enough, and easyof construction. Another incident, occurring in the year 1614, is of importance to the subject we are now considering. On the nth of October the States General of the United Provinces conferred an exclusive license upon an Amsterdam Company to trade with "New Neth- erland." The first appearance of that term was in this document, and the name seems to have originated then. This license expired, by its own limitation, January i, 1618. Five days after the departure of the Half Moon from Amsterdam a truce for twelve years — under date of April 9, 1609 — was signed at Antwerp between the Dutch Republic and Spain which concluded a term of more than forty years of the Dutch war of independence. Twenty-eight years before this time and in 1581, on the memorable 26TH OF JULY, a Declaration of Independence of Spain had been declared by the seven northern Provinces of the Pays-Bas, which provinces constituted the Dutch Republic. At 228 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY At the expiration of the truce in 1621 the West India Company was chartered by the States General of the United Netherlands, but the organization was not completed till 1623. Simultaneously with the final organization of the company the name New Netherland took form as that of the Province formed by the States General of the territory included in the Dutch discovery of 1609. The insignia, at the same time granted to the province, consisted of a Seal bearing a beaver in bend surmounted by a count's coronet as a Crest, the whole partially surrounded by a ribbon with the legend SiGiLLUM Novi Belgii — Seal of New Netherland.' In the same year the province was handed over to the tender mercies of the West India Company, and became subject to the powers vested in that Company by its charter. The principal colonization, exclusively Dutch, was upon the island of Manhattan and the city founded there soon became the headquarters of the Province. As the city grew in importance the inhabitants called upon the company for a Seal, etc., for their city, distinct from that of the province. The company was in no haste and it was not until after the lapse of more than thirty years, and after repeated demands, that it sent over to Stuyvesant, then Governor General of the Province, "the painted coat-of-arms, the Seal and the silver signet," which were delivered by the Governor to the presiding burgomaster, Martin Cregier, on the 8th of December, 1654. This presentation was made at the City Hall upon the joyful occasion of a " gay repast " given the Governor upon his "undertaking a voyage to the West Indies for the purpose of establishing a trade with those islands," some one or more of which were under his jurisdiction as appears from his gubernatorial seal that you already have in fac-simile upon a plaque. The insignia delivered to the burgomaster named the City "Amsterdam in New Netherland," the legal designation it continued to bear during the Dutch period. The City was never known in law as "New" Amsterdam. The adjectival prefix was commonly used as a term distinguishing it from the parent Amster- dam, *See page 224: Illustration of Banquet Souvenir. TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL BANQUET 229 dam. The inscription upon the seal was Sigillum Amstelodamensis In Novo Belgio, — The Seal of Amsterdam in New Netherland. Of the "painted arms" there remains no trace. The writer has found an impression of the "silver signet," the only one known to exist. In the Documentary Historv of New York, arranged by E. B. O'Callaghan, M. D', Vol. Ill, p. 397, 1849, under caption Early Seals of the City of New York, reference is made to the seal in the following statement: "This seal is exceedingly rare; we know not of a duplicate impression." For more than sixty years this impression was lost sight of. Quite recently, however, the writer recog- nized a duplicate in the archives of the New York Historical Society, a photograph of which it has given him great pleasure to let you have for your plaque; indeed, it is quite possible that this is the same impres- sion O'Callaghan referred to. In order to give the blazon of this seal it is neces- sary to first give a description of the seal of the City of Amsterdam in Holland which it so closely resembles. That many centuried city acquired capital importance in this way: When, in the latter part of the 13th century, the Zuyder Zee was formed by the terrible inroad of the German Ocean, Amsterdam was in an infant state; the outlet then afforded her by way of the Texel transferred her seat from that of a fisher- man's inland village to a seaport on an inland sea immediately accessible to the oceans of the world. From that time her progress was rapid. Nearly a century later, in 1342, her modest shield, charged with a rudderless vessel, gave place to the more pretentious grant of William Count of Hene- gouwen and Holland, consisting of a red shield charged with a black pale upon zvhich were laid three crosses of silver. Now look at your plaque, which does not differ from the above description save in the two lines, one on each side of the pale and running parallel with it. In 230 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY In 1342 Heraldry was not yet known to be governed by laws that rendered the science complete, but in 1654, three centuries later, such laws commanded universal respect and a rule had obtained which for- bade the placing of color immediately upon color or metal upon metal in the blazon of a shield. This law the shield of Count William had transgressed, for the black pale came immediately upon the red shield. To obviate this the designer of the arms of Amsterdam in New Netherland placed upon the shield the parallel lines mentioned above, to indicate that between them, and underneath the pale, a metal was used — in all probability gold. Thus the error in the shield of the parent Amsterdam was corrected in that of the younger Amsterdam, with- out further change. There has been no change in the former shield, it remains to-day just as granted by Count William nearly six centuries ago. In other words, time seems to have sanctified the error. Now, referring to your plaque again you will see that a beaver is used as a crest instead of the Maxi- milian crown. Why the beaver? Was it not chiefly the pelt of that rodent, which still appears upon the arms of the City of New York, that first drew mightily the attention of the Dutch to their new shores and led to the fitting out of the merchant fleets, the van of which is mentioned earlier in this paper! Clearly enough. And had not these shores been incontinently turned over by the States General to their own creation, the West India Company, together with extraordinary powers? And why then should not the West India Company exemplify those powers by placing upon the arms granted to their Dutch Republican subjects an overshield displaying the initial letters of Geoctro- YEERDE West Indische Compagnie, with the colors of the Great Prince of Orange, which colors the Repub- lic had adopted, dependent from either side! And this is also the story of the first habitations built upon Manhattan, and of the building of the first ship launched upon her waters by men from over sea, three hundred years ago.

CORNELIUS BRETT Address of Welcome Minister from the Netherlands M.4Y0R of New York New York Bergen PRESENT MAYOR OF AMSTERDAM IN NEW NETHERLAND (NEW , 0«^ CIT-. ) TWENTY -EIGHTH ANNUAL BANQUET 233 THE PRESIDENTS JDDRESS Address of welcome by the President of The Holland Society, \l\\. Hkxry Lawrence Bogert': — Mr. Bogert: Members of The Holland Society and guests and the star-eyed goddesses of reform in the boxes, we give you our best welcome. This is our twenty-eighth birthday party and we hope that you will enjoy yourselves as much as we did at the last one. It was said out in the other room "What does The Holland Society stand for.^"' — and looking around the first impulse was to say "Because there are not seats enough to go 'round. " The other answer was that The Holland Society represented the Dutch America of early days, and that this society was intended to com- memorate and to bring down to present days the best memories of the old days. We trace back the qualifica- tions for membership in this society to the year 1675, which marked the beginning of English domination and the end of Dutch control in this colony. We are now, as far as membership is concerned, limited to one thousand members, anci except when a vacancy comes from resignation or from passing over to the great majority, we cannot elect a new candidate, except that the sons of present or former members of the society may be elected without waiting for a vacancy. We have gathered a library, which we fondly think is unique. It especially represents a collection of manuscripts, copies of old church records, which in some cases have superseded the originals, which have been destroyed, or made incomplete or have become dilapidated. We are endeavoring to transmit these records to posterity by means of publication, reduplication, copying and otherwise. Our losses in the society since the last annual dinner have been somewhat more than usual. Among others we have lost one of our trustees. Dr. Vanderpoel, and a former trustee, Mr. Coykendall. Samuel Decker Coykendall was in the early days of the society one of its most generous friends. He invited the whole society to join him and to be entertained by him at the Hotel Kaaterskill in September, 1886. It was a most "hal- cyon 'Portrait, facing page 1. 234 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY cyon and vociferous occasion," according to the best liistory of that day. We have lost also a very near friend who was not numbered in our membership, the Dutch Consul General, John Rutger Planten, and those who have attended our dinners will look back on his presence with great pleasure and with great affection. The society, in addition to its annual dinner, meets annually in April, and then in the month of November it has what we call an informal meeting or a smoker at which we have sometimes a vaudeville entertainment. Some enjoy this more than any other of the functions of the society, thinking that more friendship and jollity prevail at that time than on any other occasion. The outlay of the society for its various activities has thus far kept within its income, and we have amassed a very moderate amount of money. So much, however, and so little, that we do not fear the incur- sions of the Pujo Committee. So far we have not been assailed under the Sherman Act, nor has anyone attempted to break The Holland Society, to unscram- ble the eggs, to disrupt it into its original ethnologi- cal fragments of English, French, German and Dutch. We therefore bid you all welcome and hope you may enjoy with us this twenty-eighth anniversary dinner. (Applause). Passing to the first of our regular toasts I feel that I may first read this selection: It is easy enough to be pleasant. When life flows by like a song, But the man worth while is the man who will smile. When everything goes dead wrong. I have a letter which comes in response to an invita- tion to the White House. The White House Washington January 14, 1913. My dear Mr. Bogert: I greatly regret that the distribution of my time will not permit me the pleasure of being with the gentlemen Twenty-eighth annual banquet 235 gentlemen of The Holland Society at their anniversan" dinner on the i6th instant. Interesting as these gatherings always are, it would be especially gratifying to me to be able to be present at the forthcoming dinner in view of the opportunity which will there be presented to give fitti-ng recognition of the approaching celebra- tion in Holland of a century of Constitutional Mon- archy and the inauguration at its capital of the Peace Palace donated by our philanthropic fellow-citizen. It is most fit and proper that those of our fellow- citizens of Dutch extraction should take a just pride in the land of their forefathers. Though small in territo- rial extent she has played no unimportant part in promoting the progress of the world. Under her liberal constitution she has obtained a worthy place in material and intellectual affairs, and as the seat of the Permanent Court of Arbitration her capital has become a center of activity in the interest of peace. It is hardly less becoming that all American citizens, whatever their descent, should share in this pride and regard with scarcely less interest the welfare of a country which in the upbuilding of this Republic contributed a valuable class of citizens. Indeed, it may well be said that towards her the good will of the whole world should extend. To the enter- prise of her merchants and the courage of her mariners it owes the civilization of remote regions; and her sturdy fights for freedom of religious worship have made it her debtor. As the home of that praiseworthy insti- tution whose establishment was the first step towards the consummation we so fondly desire, she is the Mecca towards which'are turned the eyes of all advocates of peace. Entertaining these sentiments, I should feel remiss did I permit the occasion to pass without making them known to you. Sincerely yours, Wm. H. Taft. Mr. Henry Lawrence Bogert, 99 Nassau Street, New York City. Mr. 236 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY Mr. Bogert: Now, Gentlemen, let us give three cheers for the President of the United States — Hip! Hip! Three rousing cheers were given and all joined in singing the Star Spangled Banner. Mr. Bogert: The next regular toast is to "The Governor of the State of New York." We have this letter from Albany. State of New York Executive Chamber Albany January 6, 191 3. Henry Lawrence Bogert, President, Holland Society, 99 Nassau Street, New York City. My dear Mr. President: Many thanks for the very kind invitation of The Holland Society of New York to attend its next annual dinner at the Waldorf-Astoria Plotel, Friday evening, January the i6th instant. Nothing would gratify me more than to be able to be with you on this very interesting occasion, but it will be impossible on account of official duties which I can- not neglect. With best wishes to you and all the members and hoping that your dinner will be a great success in every wa)^ and that I shall have the pleasure of being with you on some future occasion, believe me, as ever, Very sincerely your friend, W^M. Sulzer. (Applause). Mr. Bogert: It would be impossible for the Hol- land Society to have a complete dinner without a toast to the Motherland. The Motherland now celebrates in 1913 a century of constitutional monarchy. In 1813 the TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL BANQUET 237 the House of Orange came back to the government, and though it was regarded as a dangerous experiment at that time, time has more than justified it. The Holland Society is honored, as it has been honored sometimes in the past, by the presence of the Minister from the Netherlands, and I have great pleasure in introducing to respond to our toast, Jonkheer J. Loudon, of the Legation of the Netherlands. (Applause. ) .WDRESS BY JONKHEER J. LOUDON, MINISTER FROM THE NETHERLANDS' Mr. President and Gentlemen. I think I shall have to begin by a little complaint, then will come an apology, and finally those things which the spirit moves me to say. The complaint is this, that there was a little understanding between the President and myself that as I had been able to accept your kind invitation only at the eleventh hour, I should not have to make a set speech. In coming here I thought I would just have a few words to sa}-, when to my amaze- ment I found my name printed on this menu. Next comes my apology, for evidently the man not ready for a set speech must apologize for the few words he is going to say. Then comes that to which the spirit moves me. I must say, Mr. President, there has always been a source of inspiration for me when I find myself here. First of all don't I see among the hundreds of guests gathered on this occasion — I shall not say faces I know, but faces that are familiar to me, because they remind me of my own country.'' So many among you are of the t}'pe of the old Hollander that it seems to me when I come to a dinner like this I see before me one of the pictures of Frans Hals or Van der Heist that probably many of you have seen in museums in my country. (Applause.) And then on this special occasion there is much to inspire me. There is that which would inspire any man who has any feeling. Belligerent men like the man on my right feel it; men like those I see around me feel it; it is the presence of the ladies. I have been to several banquets in this country but seldom have I seen that which 'Portrait, facing page 221. 238 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY which I see today: high above me so many of the fair sex. I do not know whether it is because 1 come from a country that is presided over by a woman, a woman whom we Hollanders all love beyond words with an enthusiasm that has inspired us, whom we love because she represents a whole family, the descendants of great men and great women who have done so much for the liberty and independence of our country. (Applause.) I may tell you, Mr. President, that there is more even to inspire me. Do not I see here on your left-hand side three men who certainlj^ bring my country back to mind and rejoice me by their presence: One is the represen- tative of one of those typical features of Holland, the Domine, and I understand he is going to say a few words on the Domine. (Applause.) The second one is that man whom you see sitting here adorned with the colors of Holland and whose name is permanently linked with the Hague because it is he who gave to that city the Palace where the Court of Arbitration will reside and where so many conferences with the object of creating better feeling between men are to take place; the man who gave to Holland the Peace Palace, Mr. Andrew Carnegie. (Applause.) And then I see next to you, Mr. President, another gentleman, though not a Hollander, whom it does me good to see, the Mayor of Amsterdam in New Netherland, for to me when I come to New York it is never New York, it is New Amsterdam, or let us rather say Amsterdam in New Netherland, and I can tell you, Mr. President, that it is a very great pleasure for mc to be among you tonight. It is not the first time you have thought of me so kindly and every time I have come here I have felt the true Dutch feeling of this gathering; I feel it at once; I feel at home. Your society has done so much to bring the United States and Holland together. Chiefly it is a work looking towards the past, so to say. Whenever I am with you my thoughts go back to the olden times. I think of the time when Henry Hudson came over with his Hollanders; I think of the days when so many of my compatriots followed; not only my compatriots but also those valiant men imbued with the ideas of my compatriots, the Pilgrim Fathers. I think of those manifold influences of my own TWENTY-EIGHTH. A N N U AL BANQUET 239 own country on yours, and I need hardly recall it because all these questions have been recalled so often in your minds, of the fact that so many of your institu- tions come from Holland; the fact that so many of your men came from Holland; that so many among you have still the characteristic "van" at the begin- ning of your names. I need only take up the direc- tory of a city like New York to find columns and columns of "vans." Then when we come nearer to modern times don't we also see the great sympathy that has always existed between your country and mine.'' I need only recall the days of your revolution. It reminds us of our great William the Silent, to whom we owe our independence. Not that he was able to fight the whole war as Washington did, to create independence. No, he simply started it. He lived but a few years, the initial years of our struggle with Spain, but his spirit — I think you will agree in my opinion — his spirit was the true spirit that inspired the entire revolution with Spain, the spirit that led us to independence. And coming to this century there are so many things that rejoice me too. Because I see what 1 would call the modern immigration, the emigration from Holland into the United States. It has brought so much, done so much to keep this feeling and this good understanding alive and growing. We have so many compatriots that have come over in the course of the last fifty or sixty years, men who have settled in several states. They generally settled in the same state. One of the most characteristic is the settlement in Michigan. These men came sixty years ago at a time when they had to fight disaster; to fight illness; to fight every possible difficulty in order to settle. I think of those men in Michigan, Hollanders in Michigan who settled those cities, and they have given them the names of the Dutch provinces of Holland, men known and honored through the whole country. It is not only in Michi- gan but in many other states that I have found in travelling around the country so many Hollanders and found so much Dutch influence. It has made me reflect very often on the question of emigration. I know some people believe that when a fine man leaves his 240 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY his country to become the citizen of another country it is a loss to the mother country. Well, gentlemen, I have come to the conclusion that it is not so. I feel that is a short-sighted view of the question. I am proud when I find that a citizen of my country has come over to a foreign country and that he has created there a race of fine men who perpetuate the great qualities of our Holland. That is why I am proud and happy that so many Hollanders left ?Iolland to come to the United States because here in this country I have found they really all brought over the elements of efficiency and energy, the finest qualities that characterize a real man. It did me good a few moments ago to hear from my right-hand neighbor looking over this gathering, the following words: "You find here lots of those Hollanders, men of Holland descent and they are all men, they are all strong men. " Gentle- men, that went right to my heart. I knew it was true. I have felt that during the four years I have lived in this country. And now it is as if the connections between the United States and Holland were growing, getting closer and more cordial, as I was saying, owing very much to the immigration, owing very much, too, to the energy which I am happy to say my countr}" is displaying, particularly in commercial matters of late years. The commerce between our nations is develop- ing very greatly. The shipping interests are increasing daily. We have, I am proud to say, a line of steamers that almost every American speaks of most highly, the Holland-America Line. They are a party to the so-called Atlantic conference and had something to do with the Sherman law! I do not know what the result will be. My friend, the Attorney General, has spoken to me of the matter, but somehow I do not think it will be very bad for the Holland-America Line! Then we have other interests in common. Among those interests there is one of which people in gen- eral do not think sufficiently and which has struck me very much and that is the neighborhood of Holland and America, not in these parts, but in the south of the Pacific Ocean. We are your nearest neighbors; you in the Philippines, we in Java, and other of our insular possessions TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL BANQUET 24I possessions over there. We and you are linked togetlier and I hope we will be linked together for many years in those parts of the world. 1 have some hesitation in uttering these words for I understand that there is some question that under the new administration the Philip- pines will obtain self-government and in eight years will be absolutely independent. We should be sorry to lose you. I can tell you that we are happ}' on account of this neighborhood. It is a sort of safeguard for us and there is much in common between us. We have the same aims in that part of the world. Our colonial policy is no longer that which it was some two or three hundred years ago. We arc no longer — we do not consider ourselves — the despotic holders, the des- potic sovereigns of those islands. We think as you do in the present day in regard to the Philippines. We think that history and events have given us a great responsibility toward the natives. We feel that we are the guardians and they are our wards, and that is one of the reasons why I should feel very sorry if in the near future we should find ourselves alone there with independent Philippinos instead of Americans as neigh- bors. (Applause.) Mr. President, you were referring to two happy events which are going to be commemorated this year in our country. The one is the inauguration of the Peace Palace of Mr. Carnegie. I need not deal with many words on the subject of the Peace Conference and the Peace Palace. I understand from the program which I have seen here before me that Mr. Carnegie himself will tell us his opinion and give us no doubt most interesting things to hear in connection with that topic. All I wish to say is that when — I think it will be in the month of September of this year — the Peace Palace is officially opened I most heartily hope — and I am speaking in the name of the Dutch government, the Dutch people, — that Mr. Carnegie will not fail to be there, as the festival would be most incomplete without him, and I know the whole country wishes to hail him at that moment as the man who has brought a great benefit over the whole of humanity and over Holland in particular. You have referred 242 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY referred also to another event, the centenary of the proclamation of constitutional government in our countr}'. Mr. President, it gives me very great pleasure to speak of that event, and it is a particular pleasure to do so in this country, because I know that you understand what we mean in Holland by constitu- tional monarchy. You know how much we have in common, so many of those institutions of our country have been brought over to yours, and those institutions of our old Dutch government have continued. There has been a constant growth in the direction of liberty in our country, and that which endears so particu- larly our sovereign, our royal dynasty, to us is the fact that they understand so well the rights of the people; that they understand so remarkably the neces- sary evolution toward democracy. I, the representa- tive of a monarchy, can say, and I know I am saying it with absolute truthfulness, we have a most democratic country, a most democratic government, and we have above us — I say above because our eyes constantly seem to look far above us when we think of that reigning house, when we think of Her Majesty the Queen, that House of Orange that has understood above all what this necessary evolution toward freedom was, and when at the present day we see at our head that most gracious sovereign. Queen Wilhelmina, and see in her our representative — (Applause) — in whom we see the representative of constitutional monarchy. We hail her as such with the greatest enthusiasm because that monarchy is based upon democracy, and it is a pleasure for me, Mr. President, to recall her name in your minds. I know, for I have experienced it during the four years of my stay in America, how you under- stand that. I know also how much 3'ou appreciate the personal element in our monarchy. I have noticed over and over again with how much interest, with how much warmth you have greeted our Queen and all that which bestowed happiness on her and her house. (Ap- plause.) I can say I was proud when only a short time ago three representatives of the army of Holland, the army of her Majesty the Queen, came over to New York to "fight" in Madison Square Garden and with the excel- lent T WEN T Y -EIGHTH ANNUAL BANQUET 243 lent result that they took away from America that which was most valuable to them, the American cup, which would have rendered proud any of those officers of for- eign countries that took part in the riding competition at the International Horse Show. Now, Mr. President, as I was saying to you, this is not a set speech. Just the inspiration of the moment. I have been inspired by all which you have given me this evening; by that orange flag which I see across the hall; b}' the ladies, who form such a charming feature of this banquet. Would you allow me, Mr. President, in thanking you for all the pleasure you have given me as representative of Holland, of Her Majesty, Queen Wilhelmina, to raise this glass and ask you to do the same, not only to the Holland Society but to the ladies adorning the gallery above the gathering of the Flolland Society this evening.? Mr. Bogert: Gentlemen, in New York the Mayor needs no introduction but he speaks tonight also for ancient Amsterdam and for Amsterdam in New Neth- erland. The souvenir which you will find on most of the tables is designed to reproduce the first seal of the city which is now New York, and through the gener- osity of a former president of this society we have a nicely arranged description of this souvenir which I hope we shall duly appreciate, as I know most of us do. 1 have the honor to present to you a gentleman who has been presented by much more than the sanction of this room and all the dinners that we have seen in the Cit)- of New York, Honorable William J. Gay nor, its Mayor. (Applause.) ADDRESS BY HON. JVILLIAM J. GAY NOR,' MAYOR OF AMSTERDAM IN NEW NETHERLAND, NOW THE CATY OF NEW YORK Mr. Chairman, and gentlemen of The Holland Society: Diners: "For he's a jolly good fellow." That is a very good song that you sung. But the idea of calling 'Portrait, facing page 232. 244 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY calline me a jolly good fellow has its drawbacks. (Laughter.) 1 will have to regard it as a Dutch joke. (Laughter.) The chairman sa)"s I am put down here for a toast. He put me down for that toast, I didn't. You can lead a horse up to the water, Bogert, but you cannot make him drink unless he wants to; and this is one of the nights when I don't want to drink, I was going to say. (Laughter.) That would hardly be believed by some people around me, so I won't say it. I will have to skip the toast. Mr. Bogert has alluded to other dinners in the City of New York. I have attended so many lately and said so much that somebody ought to hire me to keep still for a while. I have a notion that there are two or three people in New York who would pay a good deal if you started a subscription for that purpose. I came here to be quiet, and to have complete mental rest, which you can have at some dinners I assure you. (Laughter.) Sometimes at dinners I don't hear a single thing to wake me up even a little bit. How is that Van Nostrand, with your dinner over in Brook- lyn.^ Is it so? (Laughter.) But the Minister from Holland has said many things that inspire me more or less. He said something about that Carnegie palace over there. They call it the Peace Palace. I am afraid a good many will go there who do not want peace, and nobody will go there who wants war. That may turn out to be the trouble about the Peace Palace. Italy did not put on wooden shoes and tramp over to the Hague before she declared war against Turkey in the Tripoli matter, did she? And down there in the bowels of Europe where these mysterious people live who have gone to war with the Turks, the)' didn't make any peace pilgrimage to the Hague either. I imagine that the Swiss would not like to go to war with a navy. (Laughter.) They would probably make a pilgrimage to Mr. Car- negie's Peace Palace to avoid a naval war. (Laughter.) I believe they have not a single ship, if I am correctly informed. And sometimes when we have to go there it may be a bitter pill, Mr. Minister from Holland. (Laughter.) If we have to go over there and submit the question whether we have a right to let our ships go free through the Panama Canal, I think we will walk T It' E X TY-EIG II T II A N N U A L BANQUET 245 walk as slow as possible on the way over. (Laughter.) And if we ever get there and get licked I think we won't make a tour of Europe a fterwards, but we will get home as soon as possible. We will have had enough of the Peace Palace. (Laughter.) 1 am quite sure that the nations who have nothing ver\- important to dispute over, and nations who do not want to go to war, and in the case of two nations where one is afraid and the other "das- sent," as we say in America, I am quite sure that in these cases they will go to the Hague and visit Mr. Carnegie's Peace Palace. Now, Mr. Carnegie, you are one of the best friends I have in the world, and I am sure you will forgive all that I am saying about this Peace Palace tonight. But when something vital comcs^ up that concerns the sovereignty and the pride of two nations, I am afraid they won't be in any hurry to go to the Peace Palace. They will go at it in the other way nip and tuck anil see which can win out. The Holland Minister has also spoken of the customs and manners which the e:irly people from that country brought here. That is a large subject. It could not be disposed of in an after dinner speech. There is a book written by a New Yorker which gives more on that subject than has been written elsewhere, I think, and that is the book of Douglas Campbell, not on the Dutch, however, but on the Puritan. But he says a good deal more about the Dutchman than he does about the Puritan, for some reason or other. And if you want to know much about the early Dutchman in this country and the customs from the common school up, which the}' brought into this country, then get and read Mr. Douglas Campbell's splendid book on the Puritans. We ver}- often think that we got the common schools from England. Why, dear me, they haven't got the common schools over there yet themselves. (Laughter.) They have them up in Scotland where Mr. Carnegie comes from. They talk about the town meeting also. Not from England did it come, but from Holland, where the common schools and other things that I could mention came from. So we are indebted to you for many things. But there is one mistake I think the Dutch Minister has fallen into. He 246 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY He is under the delusion that you are all Dutchmen who are here. (Laughter.) I knowbctter than that. (Laugh- ter.) I have been to too many dinners in New York. Some of you turned up at the St. Patrick's Society dinner (laughter), claiming to be good Irishmen, Mr. Minister, and to tell the truth probably half of you are. (Laughter.) At least half of you h.ave some Irish blood in you besides Dutch blood. I will wager that — yes, two- thirds of you. I don't know whether there is anybody here representing the St. Patrick's Society. If there be, I ought to say as little as possible on that subject. (Laughter.) But at their dinner, when the representa- tive of The HuUand Society is way down at the other end of the table, the St. Patrick's Society president always says that the lwo best mixtures of blood in this country, and we are nothing but a mixture of blood here from Europe, he always says the two best mixtures are the Irish and the Dutch. At The Holland Society dinner the Holland man states it the other way, that the two best mixtures are the Dutch and the Irish. (Laughter.) They just cross it there, but they mean the same thing, provided either of them is sincere and means anything at all, vvhich may be doubtful. (Laughter.) You have brought many good customs into this country, and you are a stable element in our society. I think you know how to vote right. (Laughter.) I might make a bet that a whole lot of you did not vote for me. (Laughter and applause.) A Voice : But we will next time. Mr. Gayxor: You didn't know enough to. (Laughter.) But here is a Dutchman who says you will know enough the next time, but you won't get a chance. (Laughter.) Your manners and customs 1 admire very much, but as for your food I am not so certain. (Laughter.) I am not altogether clear that I would like to live on what }'ou eat. I saw a dish brought in here with great pomp and circumstance, with as much pomp and circumstance as I have seen Chinese carrying laundry out in San Francisco (laughter) — two pots on the end of a pole. What was it called.'* I don't remember. I have eaten so much I don't remember it. (Laughter.) I hope the newspaper TWESTY-ElGHTUAySVAL B A .\ Q C E T 247 newspaper reporters will get at least this accurately, how many other errors they ma}' commit, whether accidenth' or intentionalh'. Try to get this right. (Laughter.) Let me see it on the bill of fare. It is called "Hutspot," H-U-T-S-P-0-T. (Laughter.) I am sure I do not know what it is. I looked at it and wished it well, but I did not eat it. I would not take the risk. (Laughter.) I have an interview with the Secretary of War tomorrow in Washington and I have to be careful. There is a Spanish dish which we read about in Don Quixote called Griefs and Groans, and I reckon it was something like this dish. You can take the Griefs and Groans, if you want to, but I pass it over. (Laughter.) Allusion has been made to the fact that we are going to celebrate a Dutch event here in the City of New York, and I have appointed a committee to celebrate the three hundredth anniversar}- of the Dutch captur- ing or settling on Manhattan Island, namely, in 1613. I have been flooded with all sorts of written arguments that the thing did not occur in 1613, but that it occurred much later. And lam sorry to say there are some who question whether it occurred at all or not. (Laughter.) But this dinner, Mr. Minister and Mr. President, proves that they came over some time or another. Whether they were here in 161 3 I will not even commit myself to. Their seal has been produced here to con- vince us of something or other, and I looked all over it to find the date, but there is no date on it. It doesn't prove anything, except that somebody manufactured it yesterday. (Laughter.) That is all it proves. I will let them fight it out a little longer, and if necessar}' I will refer it to The Holland Society, and if you can con- vince the rest of us that }-ou settled here in 161 3, we will have the celebration; otherwise not. We will postpone it until we find just when you did arrive. I am very sure that the Dutch captured Llolland at some time or another, because there is a proverb in history that they did, but I am not altogether certain whether they captured Manhattan or not, or if they did I do not know exactly when they did it. Another phase of it is that a man wrote to me today that at least one colored 248 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY colored man ought to be on the celebration committee (Laughter.) He says that shortly after you arrived you were followed by a slave ship filled with negroes, and that you put them up at auction and sold them at the old stockade which you erected here on your arrival, and for that reason he thinks that one negro at least should participate in the celebration (Laughter.) That may be so. It is literally true, that in this locality, colony and state, we did have negro slavery for two hundred years. There are very few people now that ever think of it. Li the year in which Abraham Lincoln was born, 1809, slavery still existed in the State of New York. Slaver}" was not abolished in the State of New York until 1827. It then went out of existence by the force of a statute passed for that purpose. I have said that to people who looked at me rather dubiously, and some of them expressed themselves dubiously. Never- theless it is true. And it took eighteen hundred years of Christianit)' to do so obvious a thing as strike the shackle from the slave. And yet Rabbi Wise and Dr. Parkhurst think that I should remove every vice and every wrong in twenty-four hours. (Laughter and applause.) Things move rather slowly in this world. Pretty much all good growth is slow growth. Quick growth amounts to very little, and yet it does seem that Christianity should not have taken over eighteen hundred years to free the slave. But it did take that time. Slavery was finally abolished in 1865, all over the country, by an amendment to the constitution. We ordinarily say that Arbaham Lincoln by proclama- tion abolished it. But historically it is not so. He did issue a war paper called the Proclamation of Emancipa- tion, but it related only to the districts in insurrection against the L'nited States government. It took their negro slaves just as it would take their horses or their cattle. It was a war measure. But in all the border states, and in some parts of the states in insurrection, in localities that did not go into insurrection slavery survived the war and was finally put an end to in this country b)^ the constitutional amendment of 1865. Now you see what that good negro man caused me to do, to make this digression, which really has nothing to do with TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL BANQUET 249 with the peaceful Holland Society dinner. (Laughter.) That is probably because you did not have the pipes, Bogert. If we had a good smoke we would not take so long. I am very glad to come here and to meet you all. And I shall be very glad to hear what Mr. Carnegie has to say about the Peace Palace. I do not mean to throw cold water on it. Mr. Carnegie in that matter has done one of the greatest works of all historj' and has set this palace up as an object lesson, to proclaim to all the world that peace is better than war. Although we maj' not be able to avoid war now, in the growth of God's time, when the passions of men shall be softened, and when they will be willing to submit their disputes rather than to go like two dogs in a mad fight and wrestle, then will the Peace Palace have accomplished its great work. That will not be altogether in our time, but those, Mr. Carnegie, who come after us will see it all the same. And I am sure it is the wish of nobody more sincerely than of me, and I am sure of those who are here, the descendants of a peaceful nation, that that consummation may be accomplished and be a fact in the near future. (Applause.) Mr. Bogert: Gentlemen, the Peace Palace has been introduced to you. Its eminent projector, and the man who has laid us all under a debt which can never be paid, is with us tonight, Mr. Carnegie. (Applause.) JDDRESS BY HON. ANDREW CARNEGIE, OF NEJV YORK^ Mr. Carnegie: Mr. Chairman, Your Excellency, the Lord Mayor, who ought to be a Lord Alayor, if he isn't, ladies and gentlemen: Permit me first to thank the members of The Holland Society for the great honor conferred by inviting me as your guest. I am doing my very best to show you how delighted I was with your invitation. I wear for the first time the Order 'See portrait page 214. Q 250 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY Order of Orange and Nassau,' presented by Her Majesty the Queen of Holland. (Prolonged Applause.) Gentlemen, I am carried back in thought tonight to that small but mighty land, greatest length one hundred sixty-four miles; greatest breadth one hundred forty- four miles; about equal in size to one of our smaller states; probably three Hollands could be made out of our State of New York; but no land in the world has exercised so great an influence over its people; and, contrariwise, no people has exercised so great an influence over the land in more senses than one. The Dutch have not only taken Holland; they have made it; rescued it from the sea by dykes in part, and in other parts filled up the land and expelled the sea. Tromp, with the broom at the topmast, proclaimed to all the world that the mission of the Dutch was to "sweep the seas," and over the seas your ancestors came, discovered the Hudson and founded New York City in 161 3. I repeat that, although the Mayor doubts it. (Great applause.) On the question of International peace the Mayor gets right at last, as he usually does if you only give him time enough. (Laughter.) Mr. Gaynor: The question is now settled, Mr. Bogert. Mr. Carnegie: A great opportunity presents it- self when you are before His Honor and you get the decision of the Maj^or in your favor. Now, here is another point. Just three hundred years ago was founded New York, the City which already rivals London in population and is to surpass it next year, thus becoming the most populous city ever known. Let us indorse the Mayor for continuance in office so that he shall celebrate the triumph of New York over London and be able to proclaim it the great- est muster of human beings the world has ever seen. (Applause.) The Dutch and the Scotch, as you well know, are reputed near kin. Both have developed their respective lands from chaos and made them blossom as the rose, and have both won a reputation by not only taking 'Degree of "Grootofficer" which is See Year Book for 1894,^ page 190-201, second in rank and is inseparably for illustration of insignia and descrip- allied to crown of the Netherlands. tion of the Order of Orange-Nassau. TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL BANQUET 25I taking and making these lands, but in so doing tliey are credited witli having somewhat developed the ten- dency to "take anything else they can lay their hands on." (Laughter.) The relations of the two small twin countries, Holland and Scotland, were always close. I like to recall tonight that the first treaty ever made by Scotland was with Holland, when under the regency of Sir William Wallace, Scotland's hero. Intercourse be- tween the two countries was great, and many Dutch words were adopted in Scotland. When traveling up the canal to Helder years ago I asked for a checker board, wishing to play a few games with my friend. The steward did not understand what we meant by a checker board or a draft board, and we described the board to him and the motions of the game by gestures and at last he exclaimed "Oh the dambord, Ja! Ja!" Such was the name it bore in Scotland. My father always used it. Showing, I suppose, that Scotland was indebted to your land for the game; and I see Holland is now claiming priority in the game of golf.' Two fellow citizens of my native town, however, were the first to bring to the republic a set of golf clubs and balls and organized the first golf club, the present St. Andrew's. No small service to render our republic. Another service may be mentioned; a Scottish Episcopal bishop in Aberdeen was the first to transmit holy orders through ordination rites to an American minister enabling him to establish the church here in proper manner. I take it that the elect Episcopalian who today flourishes so finely in the republic, is the ripe fruit of this Aberdonian's liberal theological ideas. Probably the claims of your coun- try as introducer of golf in this land may yet be estab- lished since you were civilized so long before Scotland, but I am not going to dispute with Holland. Your claim may ultimately be acknowledged, because I remember that Scotland was wholly uncivilized and you, the Dutch, were in what was then the van of civilization. When one examines the value of the prod- ucts of your mother country, and its growth in popu- lation 'Editor's Note: — The Dutch were 20th of March, 1657, the sheriff vs. the first to introduce golf in America.

Orange, Albany.) 252 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY lation and wealth, he marvels how all this can be produced from so small an area. This is an unfail- ing source of surprise. The last census shows five and one-half millions of people in Holland, only a million more than in Scotland, and no less than seventy millions of dollars annual revenue. Her wealth was estimated at fortj'-five hundred millions of dollars in the last half of the nineteenth century. Imagine what the Dutch are doing! Holland's greatest of all products, however, are not its crops of the soil. They are the men and women it produces (applause), and America has much advantage in the generous proportion of these that she has sent to our republic. The last census shows that we have received in all two hundred and eighty thousand Hollanders. This is an immigration no one objects to. Americans welcome it and wish it were doubled. The more Dutch the better. No trouble with the proposed enactment of a reading test for immi- grants, Mr. Mayor, as far as the Dutch are concerned. They have educated their people. (Applause.) We in this country in our republic today are striving against the many evils of human society, which is very far indeed from being yet perfect, but let us never fail to remember it is always steadily improving. Progress though slow is continuous, and sure, for we know well now that man was destined to march forward to im- proved conditions as a law of his being. The greatest of the recent discoveries is that man, instead of being created perfect, but predestined to fall, has been slowly developed from the lower orders of life, and is destined always to ascend in the march to perfection, upward and onward. Should any of our friends become dis- couraged and at times shocked at the course of humanity, I recommend the perusal of the history of the Nether- lands dating from the first century before Christ, which is going back a long way. Let him learn of the almost uninterrupted reign of barbarity which has prevailed; the cruelties and barbarities inflicted; many of those in the name of holy religion, which in our day tends to draw all the different sects into brotherhood, but which in the past has served to divide them into warring camps. The different sects seeing in the destruction of each other, TWENTY -EIGHTH ANNUAL BANQUET 253 Other, service rendered to God, the eternal Father common to alL Gentlemen, When your Mayor speaks of war, what is there that exists today that could be compared with the condition that existed which we speak of here? The changes have been almost miraculous. We agree with the view of the poet, Matthew Arnold, when he exclaimed Children of men ! the unseen Power, whose eye For ever doth accompany mankind. Hath look't on no religion scornfully That man did ever finci. Which has not taut weak wills how much they can ? Which has not fall'n on the dry hart like rain? Which has not cried to sunk, self-weary man : Thou must be born again! Let me thank the kind fates for revealing such a past which we of today may contrast with our present, and rejoice at the difference; thanking the kind fates which gave us peace in our republic; which protects equally the rights of all men; insuring us equality under the beneficent reign of law; thus inspiring us with faith in the future of man in his continuous march upward and onward, in which there can be no such word as fail. I am a hearty supporter of Mayor Gaynor from the beginning to the end. I wish him to be a mayor as long as he lives. There is no politics in municipal affairs, but if he could only come, and with the modesty that characterizes him, sit at my feet for a while, and let me tell him that what once existed in the Netherlands seems impossible, but will again happen, he would take courage and remember that man was born with an instinct for his ascension, and that he will be better with every succeeding generation. Holland stands supreme, alone among nations, as having in our day held in its capital, the Hague, the Peace Conference which was called by the Emperor of Russia 254 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY Russia, the first that ever assembled of representatives appointed by the governments of all the civilized lands of the world, which, to the surprise of many, but to the joy of all, succeeded in creating an International Tri- bunal for the settlement of International disputes, and beyond this provided for stated meetings of the con- ference to be held in the future. The temple of world peace, erected at the Hague, in which the nations are to meet and confer, is to be opened this year with cere- monies which will attract the world's attention, and perhaps at the conference of the peace delegates it may be decided that a study be made of means to substitute world peace for world war. The civilized world never took so great a bound forward as history is to record it did the day of this meeting of the nations in Holland in friendly brotherhood, desirous of banishing the foul- est blot upon civilization, the killing of man by man in battle. The world's triumphant march began to "peace on earth among men good will." The one besetting sin of men in our day is the killing of each other as the mode of settling international disputes. The day is to come, and it is not so distant as many suppose, when this will be no more. I like to be an optimist, and I see it coming very soon. The day is to come when our successors are to look upon us of today as we regard cannibals who ate each other. War is often represented as necessary to sustain national honor, which some power has dishonored. Impossible! No country can dishonor another. No man ever dishonored another man. Impossible! All honor's wounds are self inflicted. (Applause.) The only agency that can dishonor a man is the man himself (Applause.) Before any other European nation had ventured so far west Hudson discovered the Hudson and a New Netherland. That we are citizens of the republic in this land so discovered does not prevent us from still rever- ing our native lands. Far from it. The one our mother land; the other our wife land; and the love of both mother and wife react and strengthen each other. Gentlemen, banded together, as you are, as members of the Holland Society, is sound proof that you have not TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL BANQUET 255 not forgotten the dear old home of your race. I close by repeating this patriotic verse: May dishonor blast our name, And quench our household fires, If we or ours forget thy name. The dear land of our sires. (Applause.) Mr. Bogert: Gentlemen, we have our day and generation before us, and it is a delightful thing that we have to call upon a representative of another section than the north. I read some time ago a descriptive article concerning a resident of that section who was said to be a fiery son of a race of cavaliers. lie had just received a letter from a man whom he called "a low sort of person, sir," and it caused him to reflect how best to convey in correspondence an adequate expression of the Colonel's opinion. But his stenographer was a lady. So the Colonel sort of made two or three false starts and finally dictated a fourth: "Sir: JMy stenographer being a lady cannot transcribe what I think of you; I being a gentleman cannot think it; but you being neither will readily understand what I mean. " Gentlemen, we have a delightful representative of the south with us and he will speak for our day and generation. He needs no other introduction than calling upon Honorable Martin W. Littleton. ADDRESS BY MARTIN If. LITTLETON,' UNITED STATES CONGRESSMAN FROM NEW YORK Mr. Chairman, Mr. Mayor, gentlemen of the Holland Society, and ladies and gentlemen: It is a little bit late for a man to try to teach you anything or teach himself something. He'd better go easy about this time, I think, in my opinion. I have been particularly pleased to- night in the freedom with which all the gentlemen have spoken, our Minister, our Mayor, and of course our universal 'Portrait in Year Book, 1902, page 70. 256 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY universal person, Mr. Carnegie. And i have been thinking about one thing I am going to say. I don't care what you thinli about it. We proposed the toast to the President of the United States tonight, and there was kind of a hearty ring in it, and I am going to say something about our President. A Voice: Good. Mr. Littleton: Almost everyone here knows that I am sort of a democrat. A Voice: The good sort. Mr. Littleton: But I am just a little sore about the way a great man who has presided over this nation for four years has been treated, and since we are all here together as friends I can say what I think about that, because I am not running from anything nor for any- thing. First off I wish to make this one observation — and I will not make any speech which is highly colored or which is devoted to what you call the polemics of the occasion, or fireworks. I think the meanest thing that has happened in America since the days of Andrew Johnson has been the way President Taft has been treated. (Applause.) Now I know perfectly well that he has not always been diplomatic; and I know per- fectly well that he has not done the thing which you or I would have done, because I know he wouldn't do what I have done. I can at least speak for that. But what makes me clean sick to the very center of my system is that a man who is the great representative of this republic, as honorable and as decent as he is, and working for his country with a perfect self-abnegation — and he is a republican and I am a democrat — that a man who can do what he has done is being sort of spurned out of public life just at this particular moment, and everybody says : " Well, what's become of Taft I " A Voice: He is all right. A Voice: He will come back. Mr. Littleton: Now I scorn with all my soul — and I can speak tonight — I am not afraid of anybody here. With all my soul I scorn the coarsest criticism of public men without any intelligence or reason or judg- ment. (Applause.) The little bits of time that I have been TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL BANQUET 257 been in public life do not amount to that.' 1 do not ask anyone to defend or support me. It does not make any difference. I have had just as good a time as you have. I do not aslc it on that ground. But when a great executive, trained, strong, intelligent, honestly devoted to the institutions of our country, has served four years in the service of his country, and men, republicans and democrats, say: "Well, all right; he is gone and we will let him go," instead of saying: "Well, he gave and consecrated and dedicated all his influence and ability to the service of his country." (Applause.) That is one thing I wanted to say first. No more about that. I won't go any further. I've got something to say about Ma3'or Gaynor. Mr. Gaynor: Don't say that. Mr. Littleton: Well, I will say that I practiced law in front of him for about ten years and he was the most disagreeable judge I think I ever encountered. Mr. Gaynor: I gave you justice; that was the trouble. Mr. Littleton: Yes, but you always gave it with an acid test. Now, I know what he is doing, and now I appeal for the second executive. I have now spoken about Mr. Taft in my own way, whether you liked it or not. Now I speak again for an executive who happens to be on my own side of the politics of the country, and he is the executive of this city, and in my own opinion — I do not care a rap what you think about it — he has been the most intelligent, the most industrious and the most persistent friend of public and honest government that we have had in New York for years. Now, then, somebody says "All right." Maybe he tells you that to stop me. He is trying to make me stop now; he has been doing that for ten years. I tell you I will just happen to have enough vitality not to stop; that's all. He would probably stop me now, if he could. I only say this, and only point a moral and adorn a tale by these two examples. If the public men of America and the private men and the business men of America will not hold up the hands of the best men they elect to public ofiice, then you have a perfect orgy of debauchery in your public service. I want to tell you now that I have served 'Snaps his finger. 258 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY served a little bit, too, here. I have made up my mind to quit, and I made up my mind because you are too cowardly to fight and too fat to run. You do not do your public men any service in this country. You are always picking at them. You never give them a chance. You read everything that is miserable about them; you believe everything that is miserable about them; or write everything that is miserable to them. You do not stand by them, and they sit around either too proud or too sad or too vain or too honorable or too exhausted; they don't know what. They say: "Is it possible that people believe this about me. " Now, I am through with that. I speak now of the executive of your city. He does not want me to. I suppose he will scold me about doing it. In my opinion he is the clearest headed individual that has ruled over this government in my recollection in this city. (Applause.) Now I paid him that compliment and I suppose when I get outside he will say I was nonsensical. I want to say one other thing. Our friend, Mr. Carnegie, because we crossed the ocean in the same ship, reduced me to a state of degradation in the house of congress which it took me a long while to get out of, because I was impeached for the fact that I had been with him. He and I argued all the way from Fish- guard to Sandy Hook. I said to him: "Don't you see I'm going to be ruined by being with you.f* I am a young man; my future is all yet undeveloped; my family are here; my children. I haven't made much out of what I have done and you have made a great deal. Don't you think it better, if one or the other of us has got to go overboard, don't you think it better that you should go overboard and give me a chance." Then with clever Scotch instinct he made a motion to adjourn the argument until the next day, and we argued until we got to Sandy Hook, whereupon he said there was no use of anybody going overboard. One other thing, turning from public officers to men who have for some reason or other become the trustees of great property. They want to create something beyond what is merely necessary. They have got a surplus. TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL BANQUET 259 surplus. Twenty-seven hundred libraries I think he told me. Better get up and deny that if it isn't so. Mr. Carnegie: More than that. Mr. Littleton: That was a year ago. What has happened since I do not know. Here is a man who, after all his earnings, coming from what I might call squalid poverty, has lived up through all the possibili- ties of the great republic, earned and got and controlled, and now dedicates to the public service the best that he can do. I do not agree with him. I would not give them libraries myself. But nevertheless he gives them everything he can with a kind of consecration. And the other day Rockefeller had a bill introduced in congress to fix the Rockefeller Foundation with one hundred millions dedicated to the service of the human race; that they might not suffer; that they might not die; that they might have something to stand between them and impoverishment; and I say it now to the ever- lasting shame of the house in which I stood they destroyed the bill because they said Rockefeller had done it. I do not speak of them both in the same terms, but even so when men come to regard themselves as trustees for this great interest; when they look upon themselves as being the administrators of the human race, and still we scold. Now, if we scold Taft and we scold Mayor Gaynor, and if we scold Carnegie and if we scold Rockefeller, and we scold everybody and sit and say there is nothing good in all the world, then where do we come out? He is the trustee of a great power in this city. In my honest opinion he is adminis- tering it with perfect fidelity to the public service. Taft was administering, in my opinion, his executive powers for the service of his nation. Mr. Carnegie is today administering whatever has come to him of the good fortune of the world, administering it the best he can, in his opinion, for the service of the human race. (Applause.) And if we scorn all these things, and if we must criticise all these things and say we accept none of them, then we might as well say, as was said of a period in the history of England: "There came a period of stagnation in England when there were onl)" two questions asked. One was 'What is mine' and the answer 26o THE HOLLAND SOCIETY answer was 'No matter' and the next question was: 'What is the matter' and the answer was 'Never mind.' I have only spoken about this. It has been clean off the tongue. I did not intend to speak about this until I sat here and heard these speeches. I have a toast. I had not looked at it before. But my toast happens to be "Our day and generation," and I am quite through with the whole question of my subject, our day and generation. Gentlemen, if you will not stand by your strong public men; if you are too cowardly to stand behind the men who are brave enough to stand for their convictions; if you will join in the hue and cry to destroy your public men; then your public men are gone before they start. How can I answer everything that is said about me? How can I answer so much; can any man.'' It is hope- less. If you will not be strong enough in your business; in your counting house ; in your bank office to say, "well, whatever is said and done I believe this man stands for the best that is in the government and I am going out and make him have not only my check" — I don't care anything about your checks — but I want him to have your moral support. I am going out in my club, my counting room, among my friends, and I am going to say whoever challenges this man will have to fight with me, because I believe in him. If you don't do that then you are deserving of what ? You send me, a poor humble venture in public life. I happen by chance to be elected to office. I did not intend to be elected, but I got into public office, and I try to stand for something. And they all stand back. Then when I come home they say, "he is a very nice fellow; he did very well"; but that doesn't mean anything to me. I have been shot full of holes before I got back to you. I am so weary of the whole bitter thing that I look at you sour, morose and silent, uncommunicative, because I do not want to tell about it. This government has got to be maintained on one proposition. It is a democracy, but democarcy at the minimum is the rottenest government on earth; at the maximum the best government on earth. If you can summon all the intelligence and spirit of the people at one particular moment to rule, then you have got it, but TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL BANQUET 261 but if you do not teach them anything; if you do not tell the truth; if you lie to them, and there is lying done in New York; and if you are continually lying to them about public men and public servants; and if }'ou are driving public men out of office and disregard them when broken down because they tried to serve your country and because they do not know how to answer all the endless tales of comment and criticism; if you do not have democracy with intelligence then democ- racy is absolutely the worst thing; and the cataclysm beyond democracy is worse than the cataclysm beyond monarchy and revolution. I am sorry I gotjworked up like this. A Voice: Go ahead. Mr. Littleton: I did not mean to talk on this subject, only I got started. A Voice: Go on. Mr. Littleton: I have gone this far, telling you the truth as I feel it. I have got no quarrel. They have been good to me. The press has been very decent to me. As a matter of fact if they hadn't been decent to me I would have had a row with them. Because I do some- thing my way they have got no right to shoot me full of holes, but they do do that sort of thing. And the hardship of it is the public men have no position in this country. Once when I was in England a distinguished English statesman said to me why in the world do you drive your public men out of the public service in America.'' \Vhy do you drive them out? Why don't you keep them in.'' Do you want to rob America of its political experience.'' Is that your understanding of systematic statesmanship.'' We would not think of driving men in England out of the public service because their leadership does not keep them in. But it is not so with us. Take Mayor Gaynor, and I refer to him now but as an illustration. I take him now because I have known him for fifteen or sixteen years and I have been a boy lawyer in front of him, and God knows, he scolded me enough, when I was a law}'er in front of him. I pick him out now. You are not fair to him; and you won't be fair to him; and you won't be brave about it; and 262 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY and you won't stand up in your clubs and defend him; and you know how with his whole soul he has given up every interest for the service of the government; but you won't do it; and you haven't done it. All I have got to say in conclusion is this: On a long white shaft down in Georgia, when a man died many years ago, and a good man too, somebody wrote a very pretty thing, and I often think of it, because when I walk through the city of Atlanta I see this thing. Every time I saw it it burnt itself into my recollection. It says : Who saves his country saves all things, And all things sacred bless him; Who lets his country die lets all things die, And all things die him cursing. Mr. Bogert: The next formal toast, to the Army and Navy, will be omitted, and we shall take up the final toast on our list, the New Netherland Domine, his church, his flock and his records, which will be responded to by our dear friend. Rev. Cornelius Brett, D. D. JDDRESS BY RIGHT REV. CORNELIUS BRETT. PRES- ENT DOMINE OF THE REFORMED DUTCH CHURCH OF BERGEN, NOW JERSEY CITY" Dr. Brett: Mr. President, members of the Hol- land Society and guests and the angels above: I appre- ciate highly the honor and distinction of being invited as a guest of The Holland Society and of sitting at your hospitable board tonight. The joy of the occasion is enhanced by finding your efficient Secretary to be one of my own boys, representative of a family that I have had the pleasure of ministering to for five genera- tions; and to find in the presidential chair one of my own kinsmen. I do not know how closely we may be related, the president of this society and myself, but my mother was a Bogert. I heard of a Mike O'Reilly who was entering up at the registry one day, when the judge asked him if he were any relation to Patrick O'Reilly. "Yes, your honor, sir. We are distantly con- nected. 'See portrait on page 4. TWENTY- EIGHTH ANNUAL BANQUET 263 nected. He was my mother's first son and I was her twelfth." There may be sort of a distant connection therefore between your honorable president and my own blessed mother. Now, it is a very great pleasure for me to be here, because some of my friends have asked me from time to time, "why are you not a member of The Holland Society?" They know my Holland extraction. I feel like standing with St. Paul who boasted of his Hebrew lineage and asking if any man has aught to glory in more than I, with a Van Dyke, a Van Wyck, a Van Schaick, a Van Imbroch and a Van Dusen behind me, I can sing as lustily as any member of the Holland Society, "I am a Van, Van Van of a long, long line." I find one of my ancestors named as the owner of real estate, on the earliest map of New Amsterdam in 1642. One of my ancestors was the first to sail up in a dugout to found New Harlem before it had a name, and then when the charter was given, as the president can tell you, there were twenty-three original patentees who owned in common all of that district now known as Harlem. I would dismiss the fact that the municipality of New York stole all our waterways and the squatters stole all our land so that your president and myself were deprived of our Harlem prerogatives. I am descended from nine out of the twenty-three of those patentees, and I have frequently looked around to see which of the corner lots I would take, and which waterways or how much, when we come to our own. Talking about pedigree, a boy in school was asked one day to define the word. He said he could not tell exactly what it meant but he thought it was the same as hydro- phobia. When the teacher said, "John, you are far off from the definition of pedigree, it isn't anything like hydrophobia," he replied, "Well, it is something that dogs have anyhow." But with all this Dutch ancestry to my credit, I am not eligible to The Holland Society because my name ancestor was an Englishman. I do not apologize for this fact. "He might have been a Prussian or he might have been a 264 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY a Russian, but he was an Englishman." "It was greatly to his credit that he was an Englishman." He redeemed himself by marrying a Dutch girl in New York, but even this early marriage did not entitle me to a place in this Honorable Company. I did not come to talk about my pedigree, but to respond directly to my toast. Your president warned mc that the hour would be late when I would be called upon to speak. Many have already gone home and I suppose the rest want to go very soon. I will try to come at once to the toast which has been presented to me, the Domine of New Netherland. I love that word "Domine." Let me say at the very outset, I be- lieve there is a dispute as to how it ought to be spelled. In the ecclesiastical records and church literature they put an extra "i" in it. However, I will take it as it is printed tonight. In Mr. Carnegie's country they call the school teacher the Domine. It is the vocative of Dominus, "Lord," and it is something like the episco- palian "Rector," the ruler, the lord within his little parish. The word is always spoken with affection and j-et with reverence. I shall never forget when I was a boy — that is forty-eight years ago — when they began to call me Domine, how my heart leaped out to those dear old men, sitting in the middle aisle of my First Church down on Long Island; when I came out from the church and they thanked me for the poor boyish effort which I called a sermon in those days, and said: "Domine, how are you today?" And how proud I felt when the children hailed me, the boys taking their hats off to the parish Domine. I love that name. Now let me say if it hadn't been for the Domine of New Netherland there would not have been any New Netherland. You will say that somebody else would have come here, for Europe could not have left this magnificent harbor and the Island of Manhattan with- out inhabitants. Somebody else would have come if our fathers had not. But the Dutch came with their distinct form of religion because the West India Com- pany had promised to send the Domine. Before the arrival of the ministers they could have no sacraments. The nearest ministers to them were in Massachusetts and TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL BANQUET 265 and Virginia. When the Domine arrived what a great day it was for New York. I can see that little colony grouped around the battery and running just a bit up the East Ri\'er, no further than Wall Street, as on April 7, 1628, every man, woman and child gathered at the wharf, there was nothing like a dock in those days. And then they saw the dory putting off from the ship that had been from January until April crossing the great deep, exposed to storms and waves mounting mountain high; one of the mayor's predecessors, Governor Minuit, came out to meet and welcome the Domine, the Rev. Jonas Michaelius. Do not wait until 1928, Mr. Chairman, for the celebration of New York's tercentenary, for the town had been founded many years before that, but the first Domine of New Netherland arrived just then. The consistory was made up with the governor as the leading elder. A good stroke of policy. You will find in the building of the Church of New York over at Second Avenue and Seventh Street the memorial that has been put there by a man, who I think is a member of your society, Mr. William L. Brower, ' containing the names of that first consistory, the elders, the deacons of the first church in the middle states. No protestant church was then extant in America except the one that served the colony which came over in the Mayflower and an- other in Sir Walter Raleigh's colony in Virginia. This great sweep of land heard no voice of Christian prayer until Jonas Michaelius spoke to his people and admin- istered to them the holy supper of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. And there were so many people who did not speak Dutch, for New York was even then cos- mopolitan — New Amsterdam, I would say, for it wasn't New York until many years after, that they had to administer the communion in the French language in the afternoon after they had gathered in the little host of Dutchmen in the morning. There were fifty com- municants in that little colony gathered in the little room over the mill. The mill loft was the first church and Jonas Alichaelius the first Domine. He remained but a little while in Netherland, and then came the second 'Our President for 1913-14. R 266 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY second Domine, the redoubtable Everardus Bogardus, who distinguished himself in the first place by look- ing around for an eligible widow with some acres of land. He married Anneke Jans. Bogardus was one of our family, I suppose you know, Mr. President. He had Latinized his name. His name really was Bogert. It is well sometimes to look up your family tree. You have heard of the member of The Holland Society who was down at their office in Nassau Street look- ing over one of those manuscript books, when someone looking over his shoulder said, "What are you doing, Jan.'"' "I am looking up my family tree." "And did they throw any nuts down to you.'"' "Oh, yes, chestnuts for one of our after dinner speakers." Then came the quarrels between Bogardus and his governor. I think Wouter Van Twiller and William Kieft were treated even more badly than Mayor Gaynor has been treated by Dr. Parkhurst and Rabbi Wise, for not one of those men has dared to call the mayor of our city "a child of the devil," as Bogardus called Wouter Van Twiller. And then he fought bitterly with Gov- ernor Kieft, whom he criticised for that little episode on the Jersey shore when Kieft called in the Indians to a pow wow at Communipaw and treacherously mur- dered them in cold blood. When the quarrel waxed so hot that it had to be taken away from the Council of New Netherland to the States General in Holland, these two men sailed out together on the ship Princess, and in the Bristol channel both were drowned, carrying their quarrel to a higher tribunal. It has been settled long since that probably both of them, the minister and the governor, were wrong, and probably both of them were right. But one day when there was peace between the minister and the governor it was reported that Cornelius Van Vorst, who was the factor of the patroon of Pavonia, had a fresh importation of schnapps across the river, where was built the first house on the Jersey shore, near where now the Erie ferry plies. The minister and the governor went over to the home of Cornelius Van Vorst to sample the schnapps. They had been imbibing and probably got careless for fire in some way got into the roof of the house, and before long TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL BANQUET 267 long the first house had disappeared and there were nothing but Indian huts for the Van Vorst family. The government of New Netherland oflFered to anyone who would bring over fifty families within four years, sixteen miles on any navigable stream, and this Michael Pauw, the burgher of Old Amsterdam — there was nothing mean about him — said he would take his piece oppo- site New Amsterdam. So he chose the river shore from Hoboken at Wcchawken Heights down to Perth Amboy. But he did not bring over the families, and Pavonia, as it was called, came back again to the government. But there came over soon after, in 1642, another Domine. He came over as the private chaplain of the only colonist who ever succeeded in proving his claim, as Patroon Van Rensselaer. John Megapolensis was his name. His right name was Grootstad, and he changed it into the Greek word. With all the pride of scholarship he came to New Amsterdam, sailed up the Hudson and became not only the private chaplain for five years of the Patroon Van Rensselaer, but also minister to the church at Rens- selaerwyck. He also ministered to the Indians, and many were numbered among the members of his church during these years of Megapolensis. Before Elliott in New England had translated the Bible into the Indian dialect, which they say nobody can read now, Alega- polensis had translated the Heidelberg catechism into the language of the Mohawks ; and when Father Jogues, a Jesuit missionary, was tortured by the Indians and threatened with his life this good Megapolensis came to the rescue and succeeded in quieting the Mohawks and got them to put Jogues in a boat and sent him down to New Amsterdam, whence he sailed for France. He had come in through Canada, of course. This was an act of Christian charity on the part of one of those New Netherland Domines, that ought to be remembered always, as a lesson for us in all our dealings with Christian peoples. After Megapolensis, a Domine by the name of Johannes Theodorus Polhemus arrived in New Amster- dam. Long Island had blossomed into a garden. They had begun to raise potatoes and cabbages. There had grown 268 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY grown up in that region known as the Borough of Brooklyn, all of which is under the domain of our worthy Mayor, in the greater New York, several rural towns. They wanted a minister. Polhemus had gone down to the Dutch possessions of Brazil and was one of the leaders there. He left Brazil when the Dutch were driven out by the Portuguese — -and he came to New Amsterdam and asked for work. There was plenty of work for him, when the Long Island churches were organized and he became the first pastor — I am proud to call him an ancestor of mine — for his daughter Anna married Cornelius Van Wyck, and down through three or four generations Margaret Thorn Van Wyck married the second of the Bretts. So we look back to the old minister, the old Domine of New Netherland, who was the Predikant on Long Island. I have just time to speak of Henry Selyns. He came in 1660, the very year in which the church to which I have had the pleasure of ministering for the last thirty- seven years, was founded. He often crossed the Hudson, when it was tempestuous weather. He sailed around to Communipaw behind Liberty Island, and from thence found a road that led up to the old Bergen Church, where he administered the sacraments, baptized the babies and began the records of that church by wj-iting down the list of members in 1664. I con- gratulate your society, Mr. President, and I congratulate all those who love to look into the past, that The Holland Society is to publish the records of our old Bergen Church. I am so glad you are going to do it, for I have been burdened continually with ancestral society people, whom I take down into the church while I get out the old book from the safe only to show them that they cannot read it. Hereafter I can send them to The Hol- land Society where the Records have been in manuscript for many years, or I can say to them "Go to the New York library and ask for The Holland Society Year Book for 191 3, and there you will find all about your fathers and your pedigree." It is a great act which you are doing, Mr. President, you and your society, in thus giving to these people these glorious records. In TWENTY- EIGHTH ANNUAL BANQUET 269 In 1661 the organization of the church of Staten Island was begun, and in 1659 the church at Esopus, now Kingston, had been organized. With 1664 there ceased to be any New Netherland Doniine. It is true that for a single year those who had come from the Fatherland prided themselves once more on living under the Dutch flag, but it was a very brief interval and then the Dutch government traded off New Amsterdam, or New York, as it had been called, for lands in Surinam, and thus passed forever the Dutch government in North America. One more allusion or two and I have done. I must speak of one who is not strictly speaking a New Netherland Domine, but who came later, after England had taken possession. He threw his saddle bags over his horse and set out through the forests, crossing the rivers, as they lay from the Hackensack to the Passaic and from the Passaic to the Raritan. On the banks of the Raritan, Frelinghuysen began his glorious mission. I speak of him because his name lives and has lived for every generation among those who distinguished them- selves in their country's service. Frelinghuysen left his work to his son. This New Netherland Domine was one of the successors of the old heroic men who braved the wilderness. It was harder to come from the comfortable livings of the old Netherlands to this New Netherland, and it was hardly a more civilized country after the English had taken it. A young man, a New Yorker, William Jackson, went out to study with this good fellow Frelinghuysen. Naturally he fell in love with Frelinghuysen's daughter; and when they called Jackson to be the first pastor of the old Bergen Church, he brought fair Anna as his bride, and there they settled down, while under the shadow of our church they are buried. If I have done anything, Mr. President, to interest your sympathy, your aiTection and your honor for the men of my professionin the early days, I shall have accomplished the purpose of this address. (Prolonged Applause.) The banquet, the Society's twenty-eighth birthday party, was declared over. The w~ -rr-r i 1= -^^^-^i-l| Wg^i TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL MEETING HE Twenty-eighth Annual Meet- ing of The Holland Society of New York was held in the Hotel Astor, Broadway and Forty-fourth street, on Monday, April 7, 191 3. Presi- dent Henry Lawrence Bogert took the chair and called the meeting to order. Recording Secretary Van Winkle read a digest of the minutes of the last Annual Meet- ing; which, upon motion, were approved as read. The complete minutes are to appear in the Year Book for 191 2 now in course preparation by Ex-Secretary Bogert. President Henry Lawrence Bogert then submitted his annual report, as follows: — Your president has the honor to report that the year 191 2-1 3 has passed into history with a fair record in most respects. The trustees have been called together for the stated four meetings and have transacted the affairs in due form, electing candidates from time to time and maintaining the membership to its required limit. The Smoker and the Anniversary Dinner were successful and well attended and became testimonials to the committees in charge. The change in distribu- tion of the souvenirs, so that only those attending the dinner received them, was the result of conference in the board and a belief that this would be approved by the Society TWENTY- EIGHTH ANNUAL MEETING 2/1 Societ}' at large. The Central New York District, the New England District and the Pacific Coast District have been set apart for Vice-Presidents, as you have seen b}' the notices. A committee has been appointed by the mayor to take charge of a celebration of the 300th anniversary of the establishment of commerce on Manhattan Island and }'our president has been made one of its members. The recent floods in the West have caused the ma}or to appoint a committee to consider forms of relief and assist the sufferers and an appointment has been tendered to your president, with request that the subject be brought before the Society. (The meeting coming so soon after the appointment makes this the occasion of calling it to your attention and submitting it to you.) The trustees took up the subjects of regulating the use and custody of badges of former members and the subject of identification cards and have them still under consideration for perfecting methods or making further recommendations concerning them. We have increased our collection of manuscripts and are likeh' to continue in this important matter with gratifying success. The interchange of courtesies between sister societies has been kept up as in the past and your president has had the honor of wearing the most attractive, interest- ing and distinguished appearing badge at the several dinners following. Anniversary Dinner of the Colonial Order of the Acorn, April nineteenth, nineteen hundred and twelve, at which were present among the speakers Signor Mar- coni, whose remarks were made peculiarly appropriate by the recent loss of the Titanic. Miss Inez Milholland was also present and spoke upon the subject of woman suffrage. There was no special souvenir at this dinner. This was to have been the occasionof the Anniversary Dinner of St. George's Society, April twenty-third, nineteen hundred and twelve, but the invitations were recalled on account of the Titanic disaster and a memo- rial 272 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY rial service in old Trinity was substituted. This service was well attended and The Holland Society represented among those present. The Empire State Society, Sons of the American Revolution, April twenty-sixth, nineteen hundred and twelve, sent invitations to The Holland Society to be present at the funeral procession of Gen. Fred D. Grant, and the Society was duly represented. The 23d Anniversary Dinner of the Dutchess County Branch of The Holland Society, October third, nineteen hundred and twelve, was held as usual and the president was, much to his regret, unable to be present. The Society was, however, well represented by the recording secretary, Mr. Van Winkle. The British Schools and Universities Club held its Annual Dinner November ninth, nineteen hundred and twelve, and the invitation to The Holland Society was the first which had been received for an interchange of courtesies between these two organizations. A noticea- ble feature of this dinner was the presence of two male solo singers who gave most excellent performance and whose services might be well worth employing at any time The Holland Society thought it wise to substitute this for some of the ordinary oratorical entertainment. There were no souvenirs on this occasion. The Society of Colonial Wars in the State of New York Anniversary Dinner, November nineteenth, nine- teen hundred and twelve, at which there were no souvenirs. The Anniversary Dinner of the Empire State Society, Sons of the American Revolution, November twenty- fifth, nineteen hundred and twelve. There were no souvenirs on this occasion but the ladies were present in almost as large numbers as the men. Anniversary Dinner of St. Andrew's Society, Novem- ber thirtieth, nineteen hundred and twelve. No sou- venirs were given on this occasion. The Anniversary Dinner of The St. Nicholas Society, December sixth, nineteen hundred and twelve, at which the usual souvenir was presented, — on this occasion a plaque or paper weight of bronze, being a replica of the tablet bearing the bust of Washington Irving, now installed TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL MEETING 273 installed in the entrance hall of the Washington Irving High School, in this city. The First Anniversary Dinner of the Hudson County Branch of The Holland Society, December tenth, nine- teen hundred and twelve, a very creditable and en- joyable entertainment, attended by the recording secretary and the president. Anniversary Dinner of the Pennsylvania Society, December fourteenth, nineteen hundred and twelve, celebrating the 125th anniversary of drafting the United States Constitution, the souvenir being a small pocket copy of the Constitution with an auto- graph letter of President Taft on the flyleaf. The Anniversary Dinner of the Sons of the American Revolution, the New York Society, February twenty- second, nineteen hundred and thirteen. The souvenir of this occasion was a circular plaque or paper weight of bronze with the face of George Washington. Anniversary Dinner of St. David's Society, March first, nineteen hundred and thirteen, at which ladies were present. No souvenirs were distributed. Anniversary Dinner of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick, March seventeenth, nineteen hundred and thirteen, at which a souvenir was given. The Anniversary Dinner of the Huguenot Society of America, March twenty-fifth, nineteen hundred and thirteen, to which ladies were invited and were present in numbers at least equal to the men. No souvenir was given on this occasion. Our Smoker, November twenty-sixth, and our Anni- versary Dinner, January sixteenth, were very success- ful and gratifying occasions, well supported by the Society and particularly creditable to the committees having them in charge. The year has passed quickly and the president realizes the honor and favor which have been conferred upon him by the members in selecting him to be their repre- sentative on these occasions of great social interest. Beyond the material features of the position, the presi- dent realizes and values the cordial personal relations and the loyal sentiments which have marked his admin- istration in the continual good fellowship and support tendered 274 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY tendered by the members at large and especially by his fellow officers; and, between the lines of the report, he wishes that the Society may read the sentiment which he expresses — and more than can be expressed — as his grateful appreciation and regard. And this the president submits as his final report to The Holland Society of New York. Henry L. Bogert. April 7, 191 3. Preside7it. Recording Secretary Van Winkle took the chair and put the motion which was then made, seconded and carried, to adopt the report and print the same in the Year Book.

Respectfully submitted, Warner Van Norden, Chairman Co7nmiUee. On 276 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY On motion, the report of the Finance Committee was approved. Recording Secretary Van Winkle then presented the following report: — To THE Members of The Holland Society of New York, Mijne Heeren: — The limit of membership has been main- tained, and at the last meeting of the trustees all of the vacancies were filled, so that our membership is now an even one thousand.

On January l6th the Society celebrated as usual its Anniversary Dinner. It was well attended. NEW APPLICATION BLANKS: It was found advisable to revise the application blanks so that they would conform to the new requirements of the Commit- tee on Genealog}', and it is recommended that the proposer and seconder write personal letters to the Recording Secretary giving such additional information as they deem necessar}' in order to properly acquaint the Committee on Genealogy with the candidate's stand- ing in the communit}'. Many important publications have been added to the library, among the most important are "Nieu Haarlem Register" by Toler, "The Van Deusen Genealogy" by Captain Albert H. \'an Deusen, and the "\'reeland Genealogy" by Nicholas Vreeland. A complete list of accessions will appear in the Year Book. The Society was represented by Theodore Roosevelt and William Harman \'an Allen at the Ninth Annual Conference of the Historical Associations, held in Bos- ton and Cambridge, December 23-31 inclusive, 191 2. The most important matters of business brought before the Conference this year were the continuation of the work in Paris on a Catalog of Documents in French Archives relating to the history of the Mississippi Valley, 278 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY Valley, and the question of a committee on the histori- cal activities of hereditary and patriotic societies. QUEEN WILHELiMINA LECTURESHIP: At a meeting of the trustees in March 191 3, a resolution was passed and referred to the Annual Meeting regarding the proposed Queen W'ilhelmina Lectureship of Dutch History, Language and Literature. This matter will be brought before the Society under New Business. It is gratifying to learn that Columbia University is about to emphasize the influence of the Dutch on New Nether- land history. NEW VICE-PRESIDENTS: The trustees have abolished the office of Vice-President from Onondaga County and have established in its stead a CENTRAL NEW YORK Vice-President to cover the following counties: Cayuga, Cortland, Chenango, Herkimer, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, Ontario, Oswego, Otsego, Seneca, Schuvler, Tompkins, Wavne and Yates. A NEW ENGLAND STATES BRANCH and a PACIF- IC COAST BRANCH were also established. YEAR BOOK: The Year Book for 1913 is submitted herewith as Exhibit "A" which is in approved page proof complete with the exception of the minutes of this meeting. This Year Book will be delivered to the members early in May. The Library and Executive Office of the society has been moved to the West Street Building, corner of Cedar and \\ est Streets, telephone 4139 Rector. The books and manuscripts are now housed in a fire-proof building. A museum has been started in which the various relics and memorabilia now in the archives are on view under glass. Thirty-one copies of our manu- script records have been bound in substantial canvas binding for permanent record, and all loose sheet records not of sufficient importance for permanent bindings are bound in temporary board file covers. Respectfully submitted, Edward Van Winkle, Recording Secretary. On motion, the above report was received and ordered printed in the Year Book. The TWENTY -EIGHTH ANNUAL MEETING 279 The Corresponding Secretary Conover then read the following report: — Holland Society of New York, Gentlemen: Following the precedent as set by last year the Corresponding Secretary herewith submits his report. Since the moving of the Society's archives and work- ing headquarters to 90 West Street, it has occurred to both Secretaries that by making this place the head- quarters of the society, it would be well to have both Secretaries take this as their address; the Correspond- ing Secretary arranging to be there one day a week between specified hours. It is also suggested that members call at the new rooms of the Society and become personally acquainted with the Secretaries, as well as see what the society possesses of valuable his- torical interest. At the beginning of the past year it was understood that the Corresponding Secretary was to be invited to at least one of the meetings of the Trustees, in order to get at first hand a working idea of that body's deliberations, as well as to be of assistance to the Recording Secretary. As this was not carried out the onus of burden for the working report of the Society has fallen entirely upon your Recording Secretary, as well as a lack of knowledge of the actual working of the society by the Corresponding Secretary. There seems to be a startling lack of knowledge among the Vice-Presidents as to their duties, especially where it becomes necessary for a reply, which is always perforce urgent, when application is made by the Corresponding Secretary for memorial sketches. Also, where it becomes necessary to obtain from each county the wishes of members as to their choice of a Vice- President for the ensuing year. It might be well to suggest that the newly elected Vice-Presidents read Article 5, Section i of the Constitution. During the past year many letters have been received asking why year books for the past six years, 1907-19 12 inclusive, have not been received. Believing that these were nearing completion and were to be sent out by the date 28o THE HOLLAND SOCIETY date of this meeting, the Corresponding Secretary has replied to tliat effect. Definite information on this matter would be appreciated. Another matter of carelessness, or omission, is the lack of response by members, when notices were sent for the Smoker Banquet and Annual Meeting, accom- panied by post cards requesting any changes of address, etc. About 33 per cent of the members comply — then comes letters of complaint about not receiving notices, etc., etc. During the past year the Corresponding Secretary has been in communication with Bailey, Banks & Biddle Company and Tiffany & Company to obtain a list of members to whom insignia of the Society have been sent. Bailey, Banks &. Biddle Company have sent a very complete list, which has been turned over to the Recording Secretary. Tiffany & Company have not forwarded their list as yet. In this respect there has arisen lately a grave mis- understanding, whether through a vaguely worded paragraph in the notice of election sent members or not I cannot state — but one member gleaned the amazing information that, through the right of membership in this august organization, he was entitled to go to Tiffany & Company and there obtain a gold insignia gratis. This matter should be referred to a committee to so word this paragraph that no mistake along these lines may be possible. Also, many are of the opinion that "rosette or button" means something different from what is received from Bailey, Banks & Biddle Company. This Society has no rosette as the Society of Cincinnati or the Colonial wars or other societies. It therefore becomes necessary to explain. If we are to have a rosette let it be designed and sold to members as others are, at 25 cents. Then let it be known that there is also a button (the shield with lion rampant). A committee should take this matter under consideration. As may be recalled by those members present, who attended the Annual Meeting last year, the Committee on Insignia gave a report of recommendation as follows: The modified report recommended the following amendment TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL MEETING 28 1 amendment to the By-Laws by adding Article 13 — Badges. 1. The badges of the Society belonging to former members shall not be worn b\' an)' one not a member of the Societ}-. 2. The badges of former members of the Society may be placed in the custody of the Society. 3. A list shall be kept by the Recording Secretary of all badges that are obtained by the members of the Society and the date of their reception. 4. No member of the Society shall be permitted to receive a badge of the Society unless he signs a written promise that in case he ceases to be a member of the Society, the badge will be returned to the Society by him or his legal representatives. 5. The trustees may make such further regulations for the custody of the badges returned to the Society as they may deem best. They vested no authority in either Secretary as to the method of procedure to obtain the badges of deceased members, nor any way in which newly elected members should pledge themselves to these recom- mendations, nor whether these recommendations were to be retroactive on members, who joined prior to said report being presented to the Society. Each Secre- tary would appreciate further instructions on this matter. Usual notices have been sent to newly elected mem- bers, but many have failed to comply with the require- ments of signing the Constitution. Without so doing they are not entitled to the full privileges of the Society. Mr. Versteeg has placed in your Secretary's hands a pamphlet, which tells of a famous trial that occurred in the old days of New Amsterdam. This is being worked over into a short sketch which we hope to present to the members at the Annual Smoker, endeavoring to have each character portrayed by a descendant of the original participant in the trial. The Corresponding Secretary desires to express his deep appreciation for the help and advice of the Record- ing S 282 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY ing Secretary, to whom he has often referred on points, on which there have been no precedents. Respectfully submitted, John T. Conover, Corresponding Secretary. On motion, the report was received and ordered printed in the Year Book. The report of the Committee on Nominations was presented by the Chairman, Tunis G. Bergen as follows: The committee elected to make nominations for officers of the Society respectfully reports the following names as its recommendation for offices to be filled at the ensuing annual election, to be held April 7, 1913: President: William Leverich Brower Vice-Presidents: New York County, Gerard Beekman Kings County, John Lott Nostrand Queens County, Hon.

Dated, New York, Februar>' 14, 1913. THIi NOMINATING COMMITTEE Tunis G. Bergen, Chairman Arthur H. Van Brunt Garret J. Garretson Alexander Reading Gulick Frederick \'an W'yck Edward Van Winkle, Recording Secretary On motion the report was received and the Commit- tee discharged with thanks. There being no other nominations, the Recording Secretary was, on motion duly made and carried, instructed to cast one ballot for the candidates named thereon. The Recording Secretary having prepared and cast the ballot, the President declared the new officers unanimously elected and appointed Warner Van Nor- den and J. Alaus Schermerhorn to escort the President- elect to the chair. On reaching the platform, President Bogert then addressed President-elect Brower, con- gratulating him upon his election to the honors and privileges of the presidential office and congratulating the Society upon selecting such a candidate. At the close of his remarks, the presidential badge was placed upon President Brower's neck and the gavel was re- linquished to him. The newly elected president re- sponded, expressing his appreciation of the honor conferred and his consciousness that, on account of being very much engrossed in business aflfairs, his opportunities for administering the affairs of the office might be hindered and that he would bespeak the cooperation and assistance of the members in the effort to make the coming year one of progress and success. After the applause which followed Mr. Brower's remarks, Mr. Van Norden presented the following congratulatory resolution to the retiring president. Whereas the past year had been one of prosperity and increased prestige to The Holland Society of New York, with the best of good fellowship and harmony among 284 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY among its members, and large usefulness in the com- munity; and Whereas, generous credit is due to the officers for the happy conditions that exist, and especially to the retiring President, Mr. H. L. Bogert, whose adminis- tration has been eminently successful; Therefore, RESOLVED, that the thanks of the society are hereby tendered to A-lr. Bogert for his uni- form courtesy to all the members, and for his fairness in dealing with every question that has been presented. We are indebted to him, not only for his generous hospitality in entertaining the officers and members on several occasions, and for the permanent advancement of the interests for which the society was organized, but also for his cooperation with the officers and mem- bers in the prosecution of a wide policy that shall con- tinue The Holland Society in the front rank of organ- izations of its class, and add to the lustre of the ancestral traditions that we all hold dear. And, upon motion, duly made, seconded and carried, the same was unanimously adopted, ordered printed in the Year Book and an engrossed copy delivered to retiring President Bogert. The report of the Committee on William the Silent was then presented by its Chairman, Tunis G. Bergen, as follows : After many years of delay in carrying out the desire of the Society to erect in the City of New York a statue to typify the chief ideas of the race from which we have sprung and many debates on the question whether such statue should take the form of one of the early Directors of New Netherland, or of the figure of a New Nether- lander, or of William the Silent as the chief representa- tive of Netherland history, during which the eloquence of the advocates of the different proposals was dis- played at meetings of the Society and of the Trustees, and the final vote of the majority that the statue should be of William the Silent, the formation of a special Committee on such statue, its ardent work in the begin- ning, the engagement of the services of an American sculptor to present a model or design, subscriptions for the TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL MEETING 285 the purpose of erecting such statue to the amount of eight thousand dollars received, of which about two thousand dollars was paid to the sculptor for his services, the presentation by him of a plaster model of an equestrian statue, the criticisms on the same, and thereafter the waning enthusiasm for the project and the lack of funds (estimates having been made that such an equestrian statue designed by the American sculptor might cost about ^40,000.) and the long inter- val thereafter during which the Committee merely reported "progress," your Board of Trustees thought it wise to appoint the undersigned on my visit to the Netherlands last summer to make inquiries concerning the possibility and cost of procuring a replica of either the equestrian statue of William the Silent in front of the Palace of the Queen at the Hague, or of the civilian statue of William the Silent in the Square called the "Plein" at the Hague. During my stay in the Netherlands last summer I made such inquiries and now beg to make the following report : As to the equestrian statue of William the Silent, the Queen of the Netherlands (for the statue belongs to the Royal Family) was not inclined to permit a replica to be made of the same or even any measure- ments to be taken for that purpose. Only three small models in bronze by the original sculptor of that statue were ever made, one of which has been for some }ears in the possession of the undersigned. The civilian statue in the Plein at the Hague is owned by the Municipality. This represents the Prince standing in his robes as a magistrate with his faithful dog, which once saved his life, at his feet. Through the kindness and cooperation of the Professor of Art at Leyden University and Director of the Moritzhuis (Royal Gallery) at the Hague, Prof. Dr. Martin, the sculptor. Van Wyck, and the Director of the Ryks Museum at Amsterdam, I was able to have new photo- graphs made of that statue with measurements of its height, pedestal, etc., and also obtained estimates of what it would cost at or about that time to have a replica of the civilian statue made in bronze by a competent 286 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY competent sculptor and moulder so that the same would be in readiness for shipment. The dimensions of the statue are about as follows (translating the Dutch metres into American inches): height of the statue itself, including the dog of the Prince at his feet, about thirteen (13) feet; height of the pedestal about sixteen (16) feet, making a total of thirty feet from the ground to the top. Of course, the height of the pedestal should depend more or less upon the character of the ground if erected elsewhere. The present statue stands on level ground. The cost of reproducing this statue in bronze in readiness for shipment at about that time was eighteen thousand francs, or about three thousand, six hundred dollars. The cost of its transportation to America and the erection of the pedestal, etc., is not included in this estimate, which includes the bronze only. Photographs of this statue are now presented for examination by the members of the Society, together with some other photographs which I had taken of the original model in plaster which I discovered in an old historical museuqi at Delft and which gives a clearer photographic impression, I think, of the statue, with the exception of the forefinger which had been broken and not well replaced. This statue at the Hague, of fine workmanship, is much marred by its present dirty condition. If it were properly cleaned, its outlines and detail would be restored and the impressiveness of the heroic figure increased. This civilian statue bears upon its pedestal that it is in honor of William, The Father of his Country. The title, William the Silent, does not appear. This statue, as I found everywhere in the Nether- lands among men of high standing and education, is considered as the most appropriate and historic statue of the great patriot and fittingly represents his digni- fied figure in his magistrate's robes as the Father of his Country. Tunis G. Bergen. March 31, 1913. During TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL MEETING 2%J During the presenting of this report large photo- graphs of the proposed statue were passed around and greatly admired. Augustus Van Wyck then said: I move that the recommendation of the Trustees as contained in their report be received and approved of b}' the Society at this meeting. Early in the life of this Society we com- menced an agitation for the purpose of erecting a statue in this city representative of the Dutch life here and the Dutch influence upon our fame. Many suggestions were made. Some that we take a typical old prominent early Dutchman of this island. But it occurred to many of us that it should be broader than that, and many of us thought in the very beginning that we should look for that character in Dutch history that transcended all other individuals in the history of Holland. That we should look for the figure that was a hero, the maker of an epoch. And there was one figure that occurred to all when we looked over the broader field. One who did more to make Holland what she was; to make a new life for the world, and that figure was William the Silent. He was a civilian of transcendent ability and incident- ally a soldier of unquestioned ability. He was not a soldier like the Ruperts who rushed their armies to destruction, but he was a soldier like our own Washing- ton, who retreated and retreated to victory, his army preserved and a nation created by virtue of his retreats. If there is anyone connected with Holland's history who makes her famous to the world it is William the Silent, and for twenty years I have been unwavering in my support of erecting a statue to that hero by this Society to speak louder than any other statue that could be raised of Holland and her influence upon this side of the ocean. William the Silent was a nobleman favored at the Emperor's Court. He had all that the glamour of power around a great court could confer upon him. While at the same time being loyal in spirit to that court, he threw aside his aristocracy and was the first of the great patriots of the world who declared for the rule of the people; for the common people; for their liberty. Liberty in religious thought, and civil liberty, which you have spoken of. Our greatest im- portance 288 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY portance and heritage, in your words tonight, is the fact that we descended from a people that were made great by this hero, and I heartily endorse the recom- mendations of the Trustees to erect to this great man, to his memory as an example for all time to a people who want to preserve liberty, and by doing that we honor ourselves as well as do credit to this Society in its own City of New York. And I do hope that this thing will be taken up and passed at once, and that we will no longer hesitate in the completion of a desire that has been so well founded throughout this Society for the last twenty-five years. It was moved, seconded and unanimously carried that the report be adopted, and that the action of the Trustees be confirmed. Mr. Van Norden: I have here a few items that will be of interest in connection with this. We have re- ceived from 54 subscribers the sum of ^8,832.00. It is fair to say that we received one very large amount. In his life-time our friend and fellow member, Mr. Coy- kendall, subscribed jS2, 500.00, and said he would pay it when he was satisfied there was a probability of the statue being erected. The years went by and Mr. Coy- kendall within a few months died, and nothing had been done about the payment of this subscription. We had no paper to show for it; it was entirely oral anyhow, and we had no legal claim whatever upon him or his estate. I wTOte to his son about it, and he wrote me a very charming letter. He said it gave him great delight to carry out the wishes of his father, as he understood them, and as we understood them, showing not only a generous spirit and filial piet}', but a great regard for The Holland Society, and he enclosed me a few days ago a check for ^2,500.00, he being his father's executor. A good many of the members were probably not familiar with Mr. Coykendall. He did a great many things for us in the past. When in our infancy and in need of help he expended large amounts of money, and on one occasion several thousand dollars in order to entertain the Society up in the country, and he gave us all a good time. I remember we spent the night up there, TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL MEETING 289 there, and some were wakened up the next morning and we got them home. The interest on this amount allowed by the trust company is ^1,488.26, making a total of ^10,320.26. The disbursements were only three items. E.xchange on some country checks, ^2.80, printing, $10.40. At one time in a burst of enthusiasm we sent out a quantity of circulars and we lost $10.40. Dr. Doosa also paid the sculptor $2,000, but the sculptor had gone to a good deal of expense in visiting Holland, and had expended a good deal of time on the models. That makes a total of $2,013.20, leaving on deposit in the Ecquitable Trust Company $8,307.06. There are unpaid subscriptions of $1,710.00 that we think are good. There is one amount of $1,000.00 which the executor did not feel justified in paying. That was from one of our members who passed away. But there is a balance of $1,710.00, and that portion may be collected. The proposition to erect a statue was suggested in the year 1893, and a committee composed of Dr. Roosa, Judge Van Hoesen and George G. DeWitt was ap- pointed. Afterward this committee was increased by adding the names of Mr. Roosevelt, Mr. Van Norden, Mr. Tunis G. Bergen, Mr. Coykendall, Mr. Van Wormer and Air. James B. Van Woert. Of this com- mittee of nine which worked together so pleasantly, all have crossed the River excepting Mr. Bergen and mv- self. At the meeting of the Society in 1893, a model pre- pared by Mr. Daniel C. French, the well known sculp- tor, was exhibited, representing the Prince of Orange on horseback, with two subordinate figures on foot, one each side of the horse, emblematic of the provinces which had supported the Prince in his great struggle against Spain. Other models of quite a different char- acter had also been suggested. One plan was to have William standing on a tall column, somewhat after the Nelson monument in Trafalgar Square, London. One model was prepared by a sculptor named Alois G. Buyens, who had a studio in East 5th Street. The model shown to the Society on the occasion in question was designed as follows: the pedestal by McKim, 290 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY McKim, Mead & White, the horse by Edward C. Potter, and WilHam of Orange and the other figures by Mr. French. It was expected that this statue would cost about ^60,000, and it was proposed to place it at 5th Avenue and 59th Street, where the Sherman statue now is, or on Riverside Drive. At the meeting in 1899, four years later. President Van Wyck announced that a considerable sum had been paid or pledged, amounting to about $8,000. The whole subject was deferred from time to time, until at a meeting of the Society in 1903 there was a revival of interest, led by Dr. Roosa, at which he stated that the model of Mr. French was too pretentious, and too expensive for the Society to adopt, as he thought that it would cost probably $65,000. He suggested, there- fore, the name of Mr. Shrady, a young man of large promise, who had just won a valuable prize at Washing- ton against great opposition, and who was willing to go to Holland and study the whole situation before pre- paring his model, and especially the statue at the Hague, which shows William with his faithful dog at his feet. Mr. Shrady had offered to deliver the statue with pedestal and everything complete for $40,000. Dr. Roosa oflFered the following resolution: "Resolved, that the Committee of The Holland Society on the erection of the statue of William the Silent, be authorized to make a contract with Mr. Henry M. Shrady for the same, at an expense of $40,000, said statue not to be accepted by The Holland Society unless passed upon favorably by the Municipal Art Commission of this City." He also stated that $11,000 had been pledged. This resolution was seconded by Mr. Van Norden, a member of the Committee, who spoke at length on the financial outlook of the scheme. The resolution was passed unanimously, with the following amendment or addendum: "And the said contract to be entered into only when $40,000 shall have been subscribed." The outcome of this action was that $40,000 was not pledged, and after paying an amount of $2,000 to Mr. Shrady, TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL MEETING 291 Shrady, partly for his expenses in Holland, which pay- ment was approved by the Society, and as the model prepared by Mr. Shrady did not fully meet with the approval of the Committee, the whole matter has lain dormant now for about ten years, during which time the fund has been increasing by occasional payments, and also by the interest on balance in bank. I do not see why we should go to great expense in emplo}'ing an American artist to originate something that will cost ^40,000 to ^60,000, when we can get this at a reasonable figure, and it is so much better. I believe it is better than anything, any original we can get in this country. This was made in Holland by a man who had the Holland environment, and we can get a copy of this at a very reasonable price. I think Mr. Bergen said eighteen thousand francs. To my mind the great point is — I admire William the Silent just as much as Judge Van Wyck does, and I rejoice in his fame, but I think the great point is the glory of our own Society. The very remarkable fact, the import- ance to the whole country, is where a few men get to- gether, all the same class of men, and all descended from a few people, if we go back to the beginning. These people, small in number, have brought to this country civil and religious liberty, notwithstanding the common schools, the cornerstone of New England eloquence — the}' brought the common schools to this country. The Pilgrim fathers, compelled by providence to remain in Holland for twelve years, brought the common school from Holland. They brought with them the Bible, they founded a church without a bishop, a state without a king, and they picked out the finest harbor on the coast, because the Dutch knew a good thing when they saw it. They picked out the finest harbor on the coast, and they founded what is to be- come soon the greatest city in the whole world. And we are descended from those people, and here in this great City of New York on the beautiful Hudson, with all those romantic and historical surroundings, we are the ones who ought to make ourselves known, and we ought to put up a statue for the glory of the Society and the glory of our ancestors. We have nothing as yet to show 292 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY show the public, but we have enough money now, and I think we ought to get a copy of the statue from Hol- land, and it can be put up with suitable surroundings on an appropriate pedestal, and I think we ought to do it for the sake of those whose names we bear and whose blood runs in our veins. The report was adopted unanimously. In the absence of Mr. Gerard Beekman, Chairman of a special committee appointed by the Trustees on the Queen Wilhelmina Lectureship on Dutch History, Language and Literature, the report of that committee was read by Recording Secretary Van Winkle. Copies of the correspondence between Mr. Loudon, Minister of the Netherlands in Washington, and Presi- dent N. Murray Butler of Columbia University, in con- nection with this Lectureship has been laid before your Committee. The letter from Minister Loudon con- tains the following: "I take great pleasure in informing you that my Government has instructed me to express to you its entire sympathy with the contemplated establishment of a lectureship for the Dutch language and literature at COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY and its willingness to participate in the costs of that institution to the amount of seventeen hundred and fifty dollars annually during ten years, to be remitted through this legation in half- yearly installments at the convenience of the University. " I have the honor to add that Her Majesty the Queen as a token of Her Majesty's interest in this matter has graciously authorized the use of Her name so that the institution may be known as the 'Queen \Mlhelmina Lectureship.' " The proposed lectures will not cover the Dutch language only, but will include the literature and pos- sibly the history of the Dutch colonization of this country. Such a course would not only be eminently instructive and useful, but would serve to call attention in a formal and dignified way to the great influence which the Dutch nation has had upon the free institu- tions of America. The spreading of the knowledge of this influence is one of the privileges and duties of an organization like The Holland Society. It is appropriate therefore TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL MEETING 293 therefore that this Society identify itself with the descendants of the Dutch colonies in this country in the approval and support of this Lectureship. We therefore recommend the adoption of the following resolutions: Resolved, that the Trustees of The Holland So- ciety sympathize with the effort being made by the Dutch Government to establish in Columbia University Lectureships on the Dutch language and literature. Resolved, that the Trustees recommend to the members of The Holland Society and to all others inter- ested in the Dutch influence in this country, that they give their sympathy and support to this effort to bring to the attention of America of to-day the debt of grati- tude which it owes to the early Colonial Dutch teaching of civil and religious liberty. Resolved, that it be referred to the Executive Officers of The Holland Society to receive subscriptions for this cause, which subscriptions shall constitute a fund to be contributed in the name of The Holland So- ciety to the "Queen W'ilhelmina Lectureship of Dutch Language and Literature" in Columbia LIniversity. Respectfully submitted, Gerard Beekman, John E. Van Nostrand, Evert Jansen Wendell. Dated, New York, March loth, 1913. Mr. Van Winkle read the following letter: Legation of the Netherlands, No. 430. Washington, April 3, 191 3. My dear Mr. Van Winkle: Having heard that Columbia University has applied to The Holland Society in view of collecting the necessary funds to participate with the Netherlands in supporting the contemplated Lectureship for Dutch literature, etc., I wish to express through you to the Society my ardent wish that an institution so useful for cementing the bonds of mutual appreciation between our countries and in particular between the more edu- cated classes, may find support and encouragement among the members of The Holland Society. You probably know that in the Netherlands a num- ber 294 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY ber of the most prominent men of learning and others have cooperated under the Government's auspices to bring about the institution of this Lectureship and that Queen Wilhelmina, wishing to express Her personal interest in the matter, graciously consented to the use of Her Majesty's name so that it may be known as the "Queen Wilhelmina Lectureship." The feeling in my country with regard to the early Dutch settlenients on the American Continent and to the recognized influence of our institutions on those of the United States is such that nothing could be viewed with greater satisfaction in Holland than the establish- ment at your largest university of a lectureship devoted to the study of our literature and connected branches. I remain, Yours very sincerely, J. Loudon, Minister of the N etherlands . Mr. Edw. Van Winkle, Secretary of the Holland Society, New York. On motion, the report was received, the resolutions adopted and ordered printed at length in the Year Book. Mr. Bogert reported for the Committee on Memorials that it had prepared memorials on the death of our former Trustees, Daniel Bennett St. John Roosa, George Gosman De Witt, and Dr. S. Oakley Vander Poel; and, upon motion, the memorials were adopted and ordered printed in the Year Books. The Mayor's Flood Committee, as represented by Mr. Bogert, and the project to aid the sufferers from recent storm and flood in the West, being presented briefly by Mr. Bogert, was taken up by Judge Van Wyck, who moved that it be referred to the Trustees with power to take suitable action, amended by Mr. Bergen, who stated that many of the members of the Society had already contributed, and moved as substi- tute that the matter be referred to the members of the Society, with a resolution of the meeting commending the project to their most favorable consideration and action.

Y., the son of Peter Van Meek and Ann Hasbrouck. He came of singularly pure Dutch and French Pluguenot lineage, for although every ancestor who came to America emigrated before 1675, there was but one admixture of English blood in his descent. His genealogical researches in Holland were unusuall}' successful, proving the home of the Van Vleck family to have been in Maastricht and its vicinity, in the duchy of Limburg, earlier than 1400. He was graduated from Wesleyan University in 1850, and shortly afterwards became an assistant in the Nautical Almanac office, then in Cambridge, Mass.

Professor Van Vleck was one of the most eminent scholars and successful educators of the last generation. For two score of years he was the dominant influence in shaping the policy of Wesleyan while the college passed from the old regime of fixed curriculum and rigid discipline to the freer life of the modern univer- sity. The high ideals of scholarship and the high stan- dards of intellectual and moral life which have given Wesleyan University its honorable position among colleges are due to Professor Van Vleck more than to any one man. He was eminently a man of liberal cul- ture. He read extensively in history, philosophy and literature, and was open to the charm of music and art. He took an active interest, all his life, in whatever con- cerned the public welfare. He was three times lay delegate to the Alethodist Ecumenical Conference, in London in 1881 and 1901, and in Washington in 1891. ANDREW JAMES HAGEMAN Born — 1837. Died — December 3, 1912. Andrew James Hageman, born at Roycefield, New Jersey, the son of the late James Hageman and Phoebe Brokaw, early demonstrated his aptitude for his chosen profession and at the age of seventeen he united with the Second Reformed Church of Somer- ville, on confession of his faith, and prepared for his ministerial work at Rutgers College, class of i860, and of New Brunswick Theological Seminary, class of 1863. He was licensed to preach by the Classis of Raritan and his first pastorate was at Hagaman's Mills, New York, in 1863, where he labored faithfully and efficiently for twenty-five years. There he married his first wife, who died at an early age. Not being able to preach longer on account of throat touble, he resigned his charge in 1887. Having received the appointment by the South Classis 312 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY Classis of Long Island to the pastorate of St. Thomas, Danish West Indies, he sailed for his new field of labor, hoping in that warm climate to recover from the diffi- culty with his throat. He took with him his bride, Mrs. Smeallie, widow of a Presbyterian minister, and after three years they returned and settled in Somer- ville, where Mrs. Hageman died in December, 1891. He married his third wife, Mrs. Gertrude A. Cox, in October, 1898, who lived only a short time after the marriage, leaving him again in loneliness. As a preacher Mr. Hageman was orthodox, logical, evangelical and instructive. His earnestness of manner held the atten- tion of his audience, and the purity and appropriateness of his action were conspicuous. He was gentle in dispo- sition, agreeable in conversation, exemplary in conduct, a man who will be missed by the many friends who loved him. His brother, Bergen B. Hageman, survives him. WILLIAM VAN DOREN Born — August 20, 1875. Died — January i, 191 3.

SAMUEL DECKER COYKENDALL Born— May 18, 1837. Died — January 14, 1913. Samuel Decker Coykendall, a life member, former Trustee, and Vice-President of The Holland Societ).' of New York, died at his home on West Chest- nut Street, Kingston, N. Y., January 14th, 1913. Mr. Coykendall was born in the town of Wantage, Sussex County, New Jersey, on the i8th day of May, 1837- / A' ME M RI A .1/ 315 1837. His father was Elijah Coykcndall; his mother was AlaHnda Shcpard,a descendant of Lieutenant Abram Shepard who fought vaHantl}' and was killed in the battle of Minnisink, July 22, 1779, and whose remains are buried beneath the monument to the heroes of that battle in the public square of Goshen, Orange County, N. Y. His father's family were of Dutch origin, the original spelling of the name being Van Kuy- kendaal, and many of its members were baptized and married by the Domines of the Old Dutch Church at Kingston, N. Y. The family came from W'ageningen on the Rhine, in the Province of Gelderland, not far from Arnhem. The family removed from Wantage to Sparrow Bush, in the town of Deerpark, Orange County, N. Y., and from there Mr. Coykendall went to Port Jervis where for a short time he was in the employ of L. F. Hough, keeper of a large country general store. From Port Jervis he went to Newburgh and entered the employ of A. King Chandler, one of the most noted dry goods merchants of his time. Such was Mr. chandler's opinion of Mr. Coykendall's executive ability, that he sent him to Rondout, now part of Kings- ton, to open a branch of his Newburgh establishment, in which he was successful. At the outbreak of the War of the Rebellion he offered his services to the Government and raised a Company which was attached to the 156th Regiment of New York Volunteers. After- wards when that Regiment was sent around through the Gulf and up the Aiississippi, his ability as an organizer attracted the attention of his commanding officers and he was assigned to duty on the staff of Alajor General Nathaniel P. Banks in the celebrated Red River Cam- paign. During his service on the staff of General Banks, he entirely reorganized the commissary department and received from his commanding officer the warmest praise for his unselfish and heroic devotion to duty. At the close of the war he returned to Rondout and on the 29th of November, 1865, married Mary Augusta, the oldest daughter of Major Thomas Cornell with whom shortly afterwards he formed a partnership under the name of Cornell & Company. The firm conducted a passenger, freighting and towing business on the Hudson River, 3l6 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY River, which now is the property of the Cornell Steam- boat Company. The business of the firm gradually extended until it embraced the Ulster & Delaware Railroad Company, the First National Bank of Ron- dout, and large interests in harvesting and wholesaling of natural ice. As Mr. Cornell advanced in years the cares and management of the affairs of the firm fell to Mr. Coykendall, who conducted them with his well known ability, and after the death of MajorCornell the sole man- agement of the affairs of the various corporations came into his hands. At the time of his death Mr. Coykendall was the owner and President of the Cornell Steamboat Company, the owner and President of the Ulster & Delaware Railroad Company, the President of the First National Bank of Rondout, a Trustee of the Rondout Savings Bank and of the Rhinebeck and Kingston Ferry Company, the owner of the Consolidated Rosen- dale Cement Company, of the Hudson River Bluestone Company, of the Grand Hotel, of the Grant House at Catskill and was largely and prominently identified with other important business interests. In addition to being among the earliest members of The Holland Society, he was also a member of the Union League Club, the Metropolitan Club, the Republican and Engineers' Club of the City of New York, of the Cham- ber of Commerce of the City of New York, a Governor of the Twaalfskill Club and a member of the Kingston Club, a member of the Society of the Sons of the Revo- lution, of the St. Nicholas Society, of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, of the American Historic and Scenic Preservation Society, of the Museum of Natural History, a Fellow of the Metropoli- tan Museum of Art, a trustee of Vassar College, a trustee of the Kingston City Hospital, a trustee of the Kingston City Library, a trustee of the Old Senate House Association of Kingston, a member of the Cham- ber of Commerce of Kingston, a contributor to the Fund for the excavation of the buried cities of Greece, and a contributor to the Palestine Exploration Fund. Lt 1886 it had been planned, by The Holland Society, to cele- brate in this country, the anniversary of the relief of Leiden. When this determination became known, Mr. Coykendall I N M E M RI A M T,IJ Coykendall invited the whole society to become his guests at Kingston and at the Hotel Kaatcrskill, in the land of Rip V^an Winkle, in the Catskills. Because the Hotel Kaaterskill had to close the first part of September, the date was changed from the 3rd of October to the 14th of September, the hotel being kept open by its proprietor and a retinue of its servants retained at Air. Coykendall's expense. A special train on the West Shore carried the New York members and invited guests from kindred societies from Weehawken to Kingston where a bountiful luncheon was served, when all repaired to the Old Dutch Church where an Invocation was offered in real Holland Dutch and addresses of welcome were delivered by Rev. Dr. John G. Van Slyke, the pastor of the church, and Alajor General George H. Sharpe, after which the whole society and invited guests went over the Ulster & Delaware, Stony Clove and Kaaterskill Railroads, to the Hotel Kaaterskill where was provided a separate room for each member of the society and its guests; a bountiful dinner that night and breakfast the next morning; and a special train back to New York; giving the Holland Society, at that early date, a prestige which greatly assisted in making it one of the most important of American societies. He also financed at great expense the publication, by the De Vinne Press, the Baptism and Marriage Records, from 1660-18 10, of the Reformed Protestant Dutch Church at Kingston, translated and compiled by the Rev. Roswell Randall Hoes, with complete indices of fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, and male and female witnesses. He was widely known, and his advice was often confiden- tially sought and followed by men of the highest public station. He was the staunchcst and most loyal of friends, and one of the most charitable and philanthropic of men. Always a staunch republican, he was repeat- edly offered important public office, which he invari- ably declined. He never held but two public positions and that was, when he held the ofiice of County Treasu- rer for a brief time, during and after the panic of 1873, when the Ulster County Board of Supervisors thought that the financial condition of their countv, embarrassed by 3l8 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY b}^ the war debt and the large sales of town bonds, issued for the building of railroads, needed a person of his business acumen to preserve its credit; and when he accepted the presidency of the First Board of Water Commissioners of Kingston, and bought and installed Kingston's present water system, in the preservation, development and purity of which he took the deepest personal pride and interest; in fact, it was well known to his intimate friends that he was quite as deeply interested in the water supply of Kingston as in the welfare of any of his corporations. He is survived by his wife and seven children — Thomas C, Harry S., Edward, Frederick, Frank, Robert and Katherine C, the wife of Edward H. Herzog. The Kingston Freeman as its leading editorial of January iSth, 1913, printed the following tribute to Mr. Coykendall which was written by Judge Clear- water, one of the founders of The Holland Society, now one of its Trustees and formerly its President, who for over thirty years was one of Mr. Coykendall's closest and warmest personal friends, a tribute which the Society accepts as expressing its view of the man. "In this column today the Freeman prints over well known initials an eloquent tribute to Kingston's first citizen, Samuel D. Coykendall. All who knew the man of whom it is written and know the man who writes it will realize that it is the expression of a full heart. An unfaltering friendship of thirty years is broken by death, and the tribute of the living to the dead will universally be accepted as an accurate delineation of the lofty nature of a remarkable man by one who knew him long and well. To it the Freeman could not add; from it the Freeman could take nothing. SAMUEL D. COYKENDALL "In the death of Samuel D. Coykendall the City of Kingston and the County of Ulster lose their most distinguished and public spirited citizen, the state and the nation an illustrious captain of industry. For nearly half a century closely identified with the leading financial I N M E MO R I A M 3x9 financial and business interests of Kingston, a leader in every charitable and civic enterprise, twice oifered the nomination of his party for governor of the state, invited to represent it in the senate of the United States repeat- edly, consulted by presidents, senators, governors and by the heads of great banking and industrial corpora- tions, his life here lent an added lustre to this ancient town. "Often importuned by friends to accept exalted public station, he declined save when at the solicitation of its citizens in a great emergency he became the county treasurer of Ulster, and when responding to the wishes of the people of Kingston he took a position in our municipal government, to the discharge of the impor- tant duties of which he brought his unrivaled masterly business ability. "Words are inadequate to describe his contributions to the alleviation of suffering and poverty, his benefac- tions to the cause of religion, humanity and education, his generosity to the thousands who have been in his employ, the unostentatious and generous manner in which he bestowed pensions upon those who through age or illness were incapacitated for labor and upon the widows and orphans of those who were dependent upon them. "Of the most exemplary and industrious habits, the most charitable and chivalric nature, of great wisdom and wonderful sagacity, of infinite tenacity of purpose, always genial and approachable, wealthy beyond the dreams of avarice with none of the pride of riches, ever the friend of good government, of dauntless courage, cultivating the loftiest ideals and governed by the highest principles, never doing or suggesting the doing of a dishonorable act, of the warmest heart and the most irreproachable integrity, a devoted and loving husband, a benign and indulgent father, a loyal and unchangeable friend, guided in all of his actions by a firm belief in the wisdom of divine Providence, full of honors and of years, he has been gathered to his fathers a rare man among men, whose memory ever will be fragrant and whose death is a public calamity. A. T. C." WESSEL 320 THE HOLLAND SOCIETY WESSEL TEN BROECK VAN ORDEN Born — December 2, 1861. Died — January 28, 1913. Wessel T. B. Van Orden died suddenly in New Baltimore, Green County, New York. He was a capitalist and lived in New Baltimore all of his life. His probable ancestor was Jan Van Norden (modified to Orden) who was in New Netherland before 1670, about which time his two sons, Adam Janse and Andries Janse Van Norden were born. They appear to have been Lutherans, and as the Lutheran Church records, prior to February 27, 1704, are missing, this accounts for the gaps in their genealogy. WILLIAM VAN ALSTYNE Born — February 16, 1834. Died — January 30, 191 3. William Van Alstyne, a resident of Plainfield, New Jersey, for forty years, died at his home in that city suddenly.

Van Alstyne was regarded as an authority on rye flour of which he made a specialty. Honest dealing and prompt fulfilling of contracts made his business prosperous. Since 1868 he was in almost daily attendance on the Produce Exchange, where he was respected on account of his upright business methods and kindly nature. He was a member of the Columbia County (N. Y.) Society, a charter member of The Holland Society of New York, for over fifty years a member of Masters Lodge, No. 5, Free and Accepted Masons of Albany, N. Y., and a member of the Congre- gational Church, Plainfield. Air. Van Alstyne married Helen Alaria Becker, June 4, i860, at Albany, and they celebrated both their silver and golden anniversaries.
