Description
His reminiscences of Dr. Francis are but few, though their acquaintance began when Francis first became assistant to Dr. Hosack; Francis did not belong to the Salmagundi Club at Dyde's, but after that was broken up they used to meet at Washington Hall, then patronized by Cooper, Brevoort, Halleck, Verplanck, and others; he himself went abroad in 1809, and after that was very little in New York; he settled in the Highlands in 1817; Dr. Francis wrote well and talked well, and though sometimes impulsive and erratic, was considered a man of talents; alludes to his own friendship for Dr. Emmet's grandfather.
