"Henry Moore (1751-1843) ""Wesleyan preacher and writer of considerable note, and an associate of the founder of Methodism....Wesley's attention was called to Moore, and in 1780 he ordered him to take the field as an itinerant of the Londonderry Circuit. He soon progressed in his work, and finally Wesley called him to London, where he became the constant companion of the great religious reformer of the 18th century. The two men of God met together in the morning at five o'clock to answer letters; they travelled together, and Moore became the counsellor of the Connection.... Moore's love for Wesley is manifest in the biography which he furnished of the founder of Methodism in conjunction with Dr. Coke. Henry Moore lived to be 'the last survivor of the men whom Wesley had ordained;' and by his pen and his preaching 'promoted Methodism through nearly seventy years, and died in his ninety-third year April 27, 1843, its most venerable patriarch' (Stevens).""--McClintock & Strong: Cyclopedia of Biblical, Theological, & Ecclesiastical Literature.
