fondness for languages and literature. In 1835 he went to New York,
where he entered mercantile life, under the firm name of Hutchinson &
Tiffany, at 50 Exchange Place. During the panic of 1857, the firm
failed, and, after a short resumption, the business was closed out. From
that time on, Mr. Tiffany's business career was continued in Wall Street.
He possessed a well-cultivated mind and polished manners, and was much
respected by his associates.
