and the personnel of the medical department, and considering it fitting that the sketch requested should preferably come from a medical officer, turned the accumulated correspondence over to him with the request that he take charge of the subject. The following is mainly a digest of that correspondence, together with such other information as has been obtained from the references hereinafter given and other sources. Owing to the lamentable fire which occurred on the night of the evacuation of Richmond, April 2, 1865, the records of the office of the surgeon-general were almost completely destroyed or lost; and at the same time, also, the private books and papers of the family of Dr. Moore, which had been moved from his residence to a supposed place of safety in the district of the city afterwards burned, so that it is very difficult to obtain even a meagre account of his life prior to that time.
