Excerpt from The Life of Count Moore: Compiled From Materials Supplied by His Family In the following pages the reader will find a most interesting and readable record of a ble and strenuous life. Count Arthur Moore was ordinary man. The main purpose of his life was in all things to seek first the Kingdom of God: it inspired all his efforts; it enbled all his thoughts. Such men are plentifully found in religious brotherhoods, giving their whole lives to the service of God, but they are rarely met with in the world. There the pursuit of wealth, or pleasure, or power, or fame, is all engrossing. Their votaries find it often impossible to raise their thoughts to the higher sphere of a supernatural life. They live entirely for this world, forgetful of the enduring world beyond the grave, which they seek to igre as far as possible. Not so Arthur Moore. He lived in the world an earnest, laborious life, mixing with men in the Senate, on the platform, in the market-place, always seeking the betterment of his tenants, his neighbours, his countrymen, careless of calumnies, heedless of dangers, patient of labour, persistent of purpose. There was great question touching the spiritual or temporal well-being of his countrymen in which he did t take a keen interest, and with helpful energy seek to bring about a better state of things.
