Excerpt from George Moore: Merchant and Philanthropist

I have written this book at the earnest request of Mrs. Moore.

The subject was brought under my notice by the late Mr. William Longman and Mr. Murray, at the instance of Mrs. Moore. They both recommended me to write the book, though neither of them was to publish it.

I was at first unwilling to undertake the Life; the state of my health not permitting me to undertake much brain-work. Besides, I was far advanced with another book which had been advertised, and which I was unwilling to postpone.

I knew a great deal about Mr. Moore's benevolence towards the poor, the helpless, and the orphans; but I thought that some other person, who had know Mr. Moore intimately, might have done greater justice to the subject.

I called upon a leading City merchant to ask his opinion. He thought it impossible for anything interesting to be written about George Moore.
