H0YT, Ralph, poet, born in New York city, 18 April, 1806; died there, 11 October, 1878. Before entering the ministry of the Protestant Episcopal church in 1842, he was for several years engaged in teaching and in writing for the press. He was long rector of the Church of the Good Shepherd in New York city, which he established chiefly by his own exertions as a missionary, and supported its feeble fortunes through many privations. His self-denial, purity of life and character, devoted zeal in his calling, especially in his relations with the poor, were remarkable. His poems are simple in expression, many being devout in sentiment, and, touching tenderly upon the disappointments of life, bear a sorrowful refrain. Others are hopeful and animated. His longest poem is "The True Life" (New York, 1875), while those entitled "Snow," "Rain," "New," and "Old" comprise some of his best work. His publications are "Echoes of Memory and Emotion" (1859); and "Sketches of Life mid Landscape" (latest ed., 1873). His complete poetical works were printed for private circulation (1675-'6), but were never published. This volume included his latest poems, "Minny Gray," "Skaters," "The Pastoral," "True Euclid," "Bank Note," and others.
