BOVEE, Christian Nestell, author, born in New York City, 22 February 1820. His early instruction was obtained at private schools, and included some time spent under the teaching of Goold Brown, the grammarian. He served for six years in a flour store, but subsequently was admitted to the bar and followed law for many years with success, gaining thereby a fortune, which in later years was lost. At one time he was the law partner of Clarkson N. Potter, and later was associated with other firms. He was associated in the founding of the Athenaeum club of New York, and was for some time in its management, and was also for many years a regent of the Long Island College Hospital. He devoted his leisure to literature, and has published "Thoughts, Feelings, and Fancies" (New York, 1857), and " Intuitions and Summaries of Thought " (Boston, 1862). Many of his epigrammatic sayings, extracted from these volumes, have had a wide circulation. "Thoughts and Events," a paper for the poorer classes, was edited by him during its short-lived career.
