Marion, Kentucky

Henry Clay; Patterson Literary Society; Law Journal Staff.

Though the younger brother of the straightest water-thrower that ever lived in the "third division," Neville is throwing other things—answers to Prof. Summer's hot questions; and the faculty has permitted him to stay in school for being such a good shot. Moore's gentleman friends are numerous, but unlike the above-mentioned brother, he never graces Patt. Hall with his presence.

-The Kentuckian, 1920
