Europe. Having returned home, he studied law, which,
however, he never practised to much extent. He pub-
lished in 18393 novel entitled "Morton's Hope, or the
Memoirs of a Young Provincial." In 1840 he was ap-
pointed secretary of legation at Saint Petersburg, where
he remained but a short time. He contributed articles
to the " North American Review" and other periodicals,
and produced in 1849 "Merry Mount, a Romance,"
which had little success. Having resolved to write a
work on the history of Holland, he went to Europe in
1851 to collect materials and to make researches on
that subject He passed several years at Dresden, Ber-
lin, and the Hague, and published "The Rise of the
Dutch Republic : a History," (London, 3 vols. 8vo, 1856,)
a work of great merit and profound research, which ran
through several editions and was translated into French,
Dutch, and German. Commenting on Prescott's "Philip
II." and Motley's " Rise of the Dutch Republic," the
" Edinburgh Review" of January, 1857, says, " They do
honour to American literature, and they would do honour
to any literature in the world." His next work a
continuation of the first is entitled " The History of
the United Netherlands from the Death of Willian-
tKe Silent to the Synod of Dort," (4 vols., 1860-67.)

" Mr. Motley's History of the Rise of the Dutch Re-
public," says a critic in the "Quarterly Review" for Jan-
uary, 1861, "is already known and valued for the grasp
of mind which it displays, for the earnest and manly
spirit in which he has communicated the results of deep
research and careful reflection. Again he appears before
us, rich with the spoils of time, to tell the story of the
United Netherlands from the death of William the
Silent to the end of the eventful year of the Spanish
Armada; and we still find him in every way worthy of
this 'great argument' . . . Many of Mr. Motley's char
acteristics as a historian will appear from the extracts
which we have made. It will be seen how vividly he
can depict the places, the men, the deeds, of other days.
But the work itself must be read to appreciate the vast
and conscientious industry which he has so lavishly
bestowed upon it. ... At the same time, he is not op-
pressed by his materials, but has sagacity to estimate
their real value ; and he has combined and arranged
with scholarly power the facts which they contain."

In 1861 he was appointed minister-plenipotentiary to
Austria, but resigned this position early in 1867, in con-
sequence of an offensive letter addressed to him by Mr.
Seward, secretary of state. In the spring of 1869 he
was sent as ambassador to England by President Grant,
but, his friends becoming involved in a quarrel with the
administration, Mr. Motley, in July, 1870, was requested
to resign. Refusing to comply with the request, he was
formally recalled in the following November. He sub-
sequently resided in England, and published the "Life of
John of Barneveldt," (2 vols., 1874.) Died May 29, 1877.

Mott, (HENRY AUGUSTUS,) an American chemist,
born on Staten Island, New York, in 1852. He was
professor of chemistry in the New York Medical Col-
lege for Women 1881-86. He published " Was Man
Created?" (1880,) "Matter, Ether, and Energy,"
etc. Died in 1896.

Mott, originally Coffin, (LucRETlA,) an American
reformer and philanthropist, born on the island of
Nantucket in 1793. About 1808 her parents, who were
members of the Society of Friends, or Quakers, removed
to Philadelphia. In 1811 she was married to James
Mott, of New York, who soon afterwards came to Phila-
delphia and entered into mercantile business with her
father. While still very young, her attention had been
called to the iniquity of slavery, and she felt it her duty
to abstain from the products of slave labour. She trav-
elled extensively as a minister, preaching the peculiar
doctrines of the society in which she had been educated,
inculcating obedience to the Divine light within the
heart, and exposing the sinfulness of slavery and war.
At the time of the separation in the Society of Friends,
in 1827, she joined those popularly known as " Hicks-
ites," (see HICKS, ELIAS,) and distinguished herself by
the advocacy of Unitarian views of the most radical
kind. She took an active part (1833) in the organization



of the Anti-Slavery Society in Philadelphia, and in 1840
went as a delegate to the World's Anti-Slavery Conven-
tion, held in London ; but, though otherwise treated with
the greatest respect and courtesy, she was not admitted
as a delegate, a majority of the convention having de-
cided that women should be excluded from any active
participation in the business of the assembly.

Mrs. Mott was long known as an earnest and elo-
quent advocate of anti-slavery principles, of the rights
of women, and of other reformatory movements. As a
speaker she was characterized by an unaffected simplicity
and earnestness of manner, as well as by clearness and
propriety of expression. Her high moral qualities, her
uncommon intelligence, the beauty and consistency of
her general character, illustrated in her domestic as
well as in her public life, were such as to command the
respect even of those who in opinion differed most widely
from her in regard to religious and social questions.
She died November n, 1880.

Mott, (VALENTINE,) a famous American surgeon,
born at Glen Cove, Long Island, New York, in August,
1785, was a son of Dr. Mott, of New York City. He
graduated as M.D. at Columbia College in 1806, and
afterwards pursued his studies in London and Edinburgh.
He became professor of surgery in Columbia College,
New York, about 1809. In 1826 he united with Dr.
Hosack and others in founding Rutgers Medical Col-
lege. He acquired a wide celebrity by his skill as an
operator and by the original operations which he per-
formed. It is said that he was the first that exsected
the entire right clavicle, and that he tied the common
carotid artery forty-six times. Sir Astley Cooper ex-
pressed the opinion that Dr. Mott " had performed
more of the great operations than any man living." He
was for many years professor of surgery and relative
anatomy in the College of Physicians and Surgeons, New
York. Among his writings are " Travels in Europe
and the East," (1842,) and "Mott's Cliniques," (1860.)
Died in 1865.

Motte, de la, deh It mot, (ANTOINE Houdart

o'dlR ,) a French critic and dramatist, born in Paris in
1672. He was the author of the dramas of " Semele,"
"The Triumph of the Arts," and "Inez de Castro,"
(1723.) The last-named was very successful. He trans
lated Homer's " Iliad," which he abridged for the sake
of improving it, and thus, in the words of Voltaire,
"changed a form glowing with youth and health into a
fleshless skeleton." Among his other works we may
name his "Reflections on Criticism," (1715,) in which
he maintains the superiority of the moderns over the
ancients. It caused a great sensation, and excited
against him no little hostility among the literati. His
prose writings are esteemed models of elegant compo-
sition. La Motte had been chosen in 1710 a member
of the French Academy, having Rousseau as his com-
petitor. Died in 1731.

Motte-Cadillac, de la, deh IS mot krde'yik', (AN-
TOINE,) a French officer, noted as the founder of Detroit,
was born in Gascony about 1660. He formed a settle-
ment at Detroit in 1701, and was appointed Governor
of Louisiana about 1711. Died after 1717.

ished a number of dramas. Among the principal of
:hese we may name " The Amorous Miser," and " Beauty
'n Distress." He also made an English translation of
"Don Quixote," which is pronounced by Lord Wood-
louselee "by far the best version we have yet had of
the romance of Cervantes." Died in 1718.
