 into the elements of Virginian character, which has made it so distinctive—the Huguenot—as referred to in the following statement: A very graphic letter was written by Moncure D. Conway, and extensively published in this country, describing Dr. Hoge's appearance and the effect of a speech he delivered in the Council, especially the impression produced when he spoke of the old Bible which one of his family ancestors, fleeing from persecution, had carried to Holland — the Bible often wet with the salt spray of the sea and the salt tears of the sorrowing exiles, its leaves yellow with age, and the names of the family register faded and dim, but bright, as the speaker believed, in the Book of Life. Dr. Hoge was also a delegate to the meeting of the Evangelical Alliance, which met in New York in 1873, in which he made an address in vindication of the civilization of the South. He also attended the Alliance of the Reformed Churches of the World, which met in Copenhagen in 1884, and made there an address, which obtained for him an invitation to visit the Crown Princess of Denmark at the Palace. He was sent as a commissioner to the Alliance of the Reformed Churches, which convened in London in 1888, and his subject before that body was The Antagonisms of Society and how to reconcile them. His last mission of the kind was eight years ago, when, at the Conference of the Evangelical Alliance in Boston, he delivered a speech which was pronounced by the press of that city to have been one of the most effective of all that were made at that meeting, and extracts from which were frequently published and commented on by the newspaper press.
