THE BERGEN CHURCH RECORDS 



Mijne Heeren, 




HE genealogical records of The Re- 
formed Protestant Dutch Church 
of Bergen, now Jersey City, N. 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.

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-

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 the period of voorlesers the sacraments were 
administered by ministers from the church of New 
York; they also seemed to have supervised the records 
which are preserved with remarkable fidelity. 




In 1750 Peter DeWint arrived from the Netherlands 
and was recognized as pastor, but an irregularity in

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

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. William Van Duzen Strong was assistant pastor for 
two and a half years, and the same office is now held 
by R^^- Abram Duryee. R«^- John J. Moment also 
served as associate pastor for three years.

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.

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

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.

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

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:

Article III. 

Members. 

Section I. No one shall be eligible as a member 
unless he be of full age, of respectable standing in 
society, of good moral character, and the descendant 
in the direct male line of a Dutchman who was a native 
or resident of New York or of the American colonies 
prior to the year 1675. This shall include those of 
other former nationalities who found in Holland a 
refuge or a home, and whose descendants in the male 
line came to this country as Dutch settlers, speaking 
Dutch as their native tongue. This shall also include 
descendants in the male line of Dutch settlers who were 
born within the limits of Dutch settlements, and the 
descendants in the male line of persons who possessed 
the right of Dutch citizenship within Dutch settle- 
ments in America, prior to the year 1675; also of any 
descendant in the direct male line of a Dutchman, one 
of whose descendants became a member of this Society 
prior to June 16, 1886. 

So long as there are one thousand members of the 
Society no further elections to membership shall be 
held, but candidates for admission shall be placed in 
order upon a waiting list; provided, however, that this 
restriction shall not prevent the immediate election 
of any candidate who is the descendant of a present

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.

THE ROSETTE OR BUTTON 

At the annual meeting of the society, April 6, 1897, 
the society adopted a rosette or button, to be worn 
on occasions when the wearing of the other insignia 
might be deemed inappropriate. 

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.

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 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

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.

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.

HE Twenty-Eighth Annual Banquet 
of The Holland Society of New 
York was held in the Waldorf- 
Astoria onThursday evening, Janu- 
ary i6, 191 3. 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

r^i: SOUVENIR 
SEAL OF 

AMSTERDAM IN NEW NETHERLANDS 

WNED and equipped by the Dutch 
East India Company, then seven 
years old, and manned in part by 
Hollanders, the Half Moon set sail 
from Amsterdam April 4, 1609, un- 
der command of Henry Hudson, an 
English adventurer who had twice 
failed, while in the employ of the 
Muscovy Company of London, in 
the attempt to discover a northwesterly passage to 
China and the East Indies. 

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

York by Edward Seymour Wilde, A. M.

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.

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.

I greatly regret that the distribution of my time

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. Bogert: Now, Gentlemen, let us give three 
cheers for the President of the United States — Hip!

Three rousing cheers were given and all joined in

Mr. Bogert: The next regular toast is to "The 
Governor of the State of New York." We have this 
letter from Albany.

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

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

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.

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.

ARTHUR H. VAN BRUNT, 

Treasurer. 

On motion, the Treasurer's report was received and 
referred to the Committee on Finance. Mr. Warner 
Van Norden then reported as follows: 

To The Holland Society of New York: — 

Your Committee on Finance respectfully reports 
that it has made an examination of the books and 
papers of the Treasurer and of his accounts, show- 
ing receipts and expenditures on behalf of the Society, 
and has found the same in all respects correct and sup- 
ported by the vouchers and other evidence. 

Your Committee further reports that it has made 
an examination of the securities, set forth in the 
Treasurer's report, and of the cash on hand, and has 
found the same as stated, — the securities in his posses- 
sion and the cash standing to his credit, — and recom- 
mend that the report be accepted, as rendered. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Warner Van Norden, 

Chairman Co7nmiUee.

TRUSTEES' 



TWENTY- EIGH TH ANNUAL MEETING ZJJ 

TRUSTEES' MEETINGS: The Trustees have met 
as follows, upon the invitation of the President: 
June 13 at Delmonico's 
October 10 at Delmonico's 
December 12 at the Plaza 
March 13 at Delmonico's 

SOCIETY'S MEETINGS: On November 22nd the 
Society met informal!}' at the Hotel Astor, Broadway 
and Forty-fourth Street, New York City. It was the 
largest informal meeting in the history of the Society — 
four hundred and fifty attending. Envelopes addressed 
to two members were returned, and after exhausting 
every available means of locating these members we 
are obliged to record that we have no sufficient address 
for Henry Bartlett Van Hoesen and Charles Oscar Van 
Devanter. 

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-

Tunis G. Bergen, Chairman 

Arthur H. Van Brunt 

Garret J. Garretson

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.

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. This was passed. 

On motion, the meeting then adjourned. 
Respectfully submitted,

Born — August 7, 1853. 
Died — April 22, 191 3. 

■ Samuel Oakley \ axder Poel died in the City 
of New York, April 22nd, 191 2. He joined The 
Holland Society in 1886, was elected a Trustee in 191 1 
and continued in office until his death. His career was

JOHN MONROE VAN VLECK 

Born — March 4, 1833. 
Died — November 4, 191 2. 

John Monroe Van Vleck, for nearly sixty years 
professor in Wesleyan University, died at his home 
in Middletown, Connecticut. He was born in Stone 
Ridge, Ulster County, N. 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. In 1853 he 
was appointed adjunct-professor of Mathematics in 
Wesleyan University, and in 1858 was made professor 
of Mathematics and Astronomy, which position he held 
until 1904, when he retired as professor emeritus. He 
served three times as acting president, and was vice- 
president from 1890 to 1903. He was a member of the 
Solar Eclipse Expedition to A-lt. Pleasant, Iowa, in 
1869; fellow of the American Association for the 
Advancement of Science; member of the American 
Mathematical Society; Astronomical and Astrophysical 
Society of America; Astronomische Gesellschaft; Con- 
necticut Academy of Science and The Holland Society 
of New York to which he was elected March 9, 1899. 

He 



/ ;V M E M RI A M 311 

He married IVliss Ellen A'l. Burr of Middletown, who 
died in 1899. A son (now professor of Mathematics 
in the University of Wisconsin) and three daughters 
survive him. 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.

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.

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

was Thursday evening, while the doctor was in atten- 
dance, that Mr. Van Alstyne had an attack of heart 
failure and passed away within a few minutes. Mr. 
Van Alstyne was born at Chatham Center, New York, in 
an old stone house that stood on the farm of the late 
James G. Van Valkenburgh, and was the second in a 
family of nine children born to Isaac L. Van Alstyne and 
Hannah Smith. He left school at the age of twelve 
years and worked in the country store of Darius P. and 
Josiah A. Wait at Canaan, New York, for some years. 
He also filled similar positions with Lauren Van Valken- 
burgh at Maiden Bridge, New York, and with Edward 
D. Benjamin at Kinderhook, New York. Later he was 
in business with A. E. Gifford and Company, flour and 
feed commission merchants, in Albany; then he engaged

South Street and later at 2 and 4 Stone Street. \'an 
Alstyne & Company deal largely in flour, grain and 
feed supplies and Air. 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.
