last tribute of respect to tho frail body of
Oliver Johnson, tho famous abolitionist,
the scene was an impressive one. As the
sad notes of Shubert'3 exquisito "Last
Greeting" died away Robert Collyer rose,
and in touching and eloquent language re
ferred to the virtues of bis dead friend.
There was no trick of eloquence and no
straining after dramatic effect, but before
he had said many words most of the ladies
present were weeping bitterly and the eyes
jf the men were dim with emotion. As the
eloquent old man with his fine leonine
Lead and splendid virility closed his ad
dress with poetic peroration it occurred to
me that no better lines could be applied to
Mm than those which he lavished on the
man whose funeral oration he uttered:
Those heroes vrho could grandly do
As thy could greatly dare,
A vesture very fjlonons
Their sainla? spirits -R-ear.
Of noble deeds, God give us grace
That we nay see them face to face
In the great da that conies apace.
The homo life of Robert Collyer black
smith, preacher, reformer is m perfect
consonance with the simple character of
the man. When J suggested to him that I
would like to gathet together some items
of his domestic hours bo wrote, "Come
some forenoon to Room 12, Holland build
ing, Fortieth street and Broadway, early
in the week and let's talk it over." Here,
then, in Room 12 is Robert Collyer's library
and study. Here he writes his sermons
and his books and attends to his correspon
dence. Be he ever bo busy a cheery "Como
in" will answer your knock atthe door.
The room is large and cheerful, the walla
being lined with well filled bookshelves,
above which hangs ra occasional portrait
or other picture. The furniture is com
fortable and substantial, but plain. Seated
in an arm chair at his large writing table

in their sad and beautiful way weaving the
fateful thread that binds them to the world.
Although 00 years old Robert Collyer doe3
not show anysign of decadence. His splen
did physique, developed by the rugged life
of tho English smith and the American
hammer maker, has stood him in good
stead. The mark of time makes itself
known in the silvery whiteness of his hair,
but has laid no sign of weakness on the
strong and massive-face.
"This is my workshop," said he to me.
"For about three years I have followed tha

tional life of the clergyman.
His grandfather was an English sailor,
who in obedience to Nelson's signal that
"England expects every man to do his
duty," laid down bis life at the battle of
Trafalgar. Robert Collyer does not trouble
himself to trace Ms lineage further back
than that hero.
His father was a Yorkshire bjncksmitb,
and a good one. "Whatever could be done
with iron in those days he could do. He
was a kindly man and earned eighteen
shillings a week. Robert always refers to
his father in a tone of affectionate regard.
"He never thrashed me but once," said he
"for striking rny sister and then cried
because I wouH not yeJL begged my par
don, gave me sixpence and took me to a
grand tuck out' at a club dinner, wMch
was so good that I would have taken an
other thrashing for the like." There was
a kindhearted blacksmith for a father! The
elder Collyer was an atMetic man, fond of
his pipe, his beer and his children. In 1844
he dropped dead at his anvil.
Mrs. Collyer, Robert's mother, I find
thus described by Moncure Conway, who
visited her near Leeds in 1874: "She is a
Konde, beautiful ld lady of about 77, with
a gentle blue ej e and a certain play of hu
mor about eye and month wMch left me
at no loss to know where her son got his
love of fun. Her voice was clear and kind
and her manner in receiving an old friend
of her son most cordial."
From this sturdy father and gentle
mother Robert CoIJyer inherited those
sterling qualities which have been of great
service to him in his long and useful career.
From his parents he received good princi
ples and a fine physique; his education he

gave himself. His father's library consist
ed of four books only the Bible, Bun
yan's "Pilgrim's Progress," the "Young
Man's Companion" and "Robinson Cru
soe." From this small nucleus he acquired
a yearning for knowledge and a strong love
of literature. From his Broadway home
overlooking this vast city, three-quarters
of a mile from hi3 handsome church, sur
rounded by books and evidences of refine
ment and culture, his thoughts, he says,
frequently span the vast Atlantic and cen

Yorkshire home where he eagerly de
voured the contents of those four books,
and afterward went to school four years
in all to a man at Fowston named "Willie

ship lay in the fact that he had lost theuso
of his legs. In those days Robert's favor

Crusoe." It is possible that they are so to
day Of a strongly religious temperament, the
young blacksmith took to preaching. In
those days his mother had never heard
him preach, as she did not reside at Ukley,
where Robert was apprenticed to the old
employer of his father. That he was diffi
dent and sensitive at that time is evidenced
by the fact that he used to say that if his
mother should come in while he wa3
preaching he was sure he should stop
Then, the day after his marriage, came
the emigration to America, which meant a
month of discomfort on the water, during
wMch time he frequently preached to his
fellow voyagers, bis arrival here and find
ing work in Pennsylvania as a hammer
maker; his preaching, and working and
friendship for Lucred3 Mott and her
school of thinkers Then came his change
of views and final severance from the
Methodist church. Having taken up the
anti-slavery caue-with earnest enthusiasm,
ha fought for it with hi3 fellow workers to
the end. He was active in tho political
campaigns, to the end that slavery should
be abolished. In 1839 he united with the
Unitarian church, and going to Chicago
became a missionary of tho church in that
city, whore, in 16C0, he becamo the minis

seven members, gradually grew into a

wMch relate to himself and his works. He
is, however, fond of relating incidents of
his trips abroad. Ha baa revisited England

A Famous Yachtsman's Sudden Death.
A prominent man in yachting circles re
cently deceased is George Lee Schuyler,
who passed away suddenly the other morn
ing in his stateroom on the Electra, the
boat at the time being anchored off New
London, Conn. Mr. Schuyler was born in
1S11. and in 1814, with others, founded the
New York Yacht clnb. Besides being the
oldest member of that organization he was
.also the sole surviving owner of the fa
mous old schooner yacht America, which
won the Royal Yacht Squadron cop now
Known as the America's cup at the Cowes
regatta of Ang. 22, 1S51, defeating eighteen
crack British craft in that struggle. The
cup thus won became the absolute propet
ty of the owners of the schoonere viz., J.
C. Stevens, Hamilton Wilkes, George L.
Schuyler, James Hamilton, J. B. Finlay
and Edwin A Stevens. On JulyS, 1857,
they transferred it to the New York'Yacht
club as a perpetual challenge cup, for
which any organized yacht club of any na
tion might compete. In December, 18S2,
the cup was returned to Mr. Schuyler by
the club, who, in 1SS3, returned it under
new conditions to the club. In 1887 the
cup was again returned to Mr. Schuyler,
who made out a third dead of gift, under
which tho club now holds the cup. With
in the last few months it had been suggest
ed that the cup should once more be re
turned to Mr. Schuyler so that another
deed of gift might be drawn up, which
would satisfy every one. His death ends
this controversy, however, as the English
must now race for the cup under the exist
ing conditions or not at alL
