by Charles Wells Chapin

        CHAUNCEY H. HUBBARD. — Graduated at Yale College in 1840. He was for two years at Yale Theological Seminary. He was pastor of the church at Stanwich, Conn., and Sand Lake, N. Y. After four years of pastoral service, owing to ill health he spent a year in Europe. On his return home he was for more than twenty years pastor of the Second Congregational Church in Bennington, Vt. He died August 22, 1876, aged 57.

        FRANCIS A. BATES, Marion, Ala. — He was graduated at Wesleyan University in 1839. In 1840-41 principal of the State Academy, Russelville; in 1841-43 he studied medicine, receiving his degree from the Louisiana Medical College, New Orleans, La., in 1843. He was a planter and a successful physician. At the opening of the Rebellion he entered the Confederate army as surgeon. He died April 23, 1889, aged 70.

        SETH H. MOSELEY, New Haven, Conn. — Commenced service at the Massasoit House, Springfield, Mass., in 1843, remaining until 1859. An eminent writer, now deceased, wrote that he was the "inspiring genius" of that famous hostelry. He was away at intervals, during that time, teaching in Somers, Conn., and spending a part of one year at the South on account of ill health. He purchased in 1859 one-half interest in the Brevoort House New York, having a successful business until his health failed, when he sold out in 1863, and went abroad, visiting Great Britain, the Continent, and the East, spending the winter in Egypt, and the spring in the Holy Land, and returning home in 1864. In 1867 he purchased the New Haven House, which with his son he still carries on. They are also associated together in the management of the railroad restaurant in the Union station, New Haven. Mr. Moseley has struggled nearly all his life with ill health, but his indomitable will and perseverance have enabled him to reap the ample rewards which he has so deservedly won.
