    1814 Northern Whig ^ | 1 January 1814 | Henry Livingston
    Another year of war, and descriptions of the naval battles in the War of 1812. And a reuse of some of the 1812 New Years verse, as well as the appearance of the unusual, and now famous, Matter-Clatter rhyme from the Christmas poem. There's also an awakened narrator, but this time to work, not to be part of a nightmare. Pray may I ask what was the matter When you all rais'd such noisy clatter,

    1813 Northern Whig | 1 January 1813 | Henry Livingston
    A recap of the news of the year which included The War of 1812. This is a far less cheerful recap of a bloody time. We will next take a view of BELLONA'S car, And Madison's new-fangled paper-shot war: -- Next turn your eyes to Queenston heights, And see how brave VAN RENSSELAER fights!

    1812 Northern Whig Carrier Address | 1 January 1812 | Henry Livingston
    A Carrier Address found in the last year and identified as Henry Livingston's by statistical tests carried out with Emeritus Professor Mac Jackson. Identification was carried out by creating a set of unknown poems, which took the place of the body of Moore's poetry for comparison, and a set of known author poems used as a control, and subjected to the same statistical analysis tests, including small words, phonemes, rhymes and noun phrases. The 1812 Carrier Address is significant because it reuses the Christmas poem's night visitor, but here it's a nightmare sprite awakening the narrator. The Henry Livingston website...

    Henry Livingston Website ^ | 1 January 1811 | Henry Livingston
    News boys would traditionally exchange a poetic summary of the year's news for a tip on New Year's. It was commonly a separately printed sheet, though it would occasionally appear within the newspaper, itself. Henry Livingston wrote these for local New York newspapers between 1787 and 1823. As always, his name is never attached to his work. In these cases, he always used the name of the newsboy.

    Political Barometer - Henry Livingston Website ^ | 1 January 1803 | Henry Livingston
    News boys, who might be 50 years old and delivering their papers on horseback, would traditionally exchange a poetic summary of the year's news for a tip on New Year's. It was commonly a separately printed sheet, though it would occasionally appear within the newspaper, itself. Henry Livingston mainly wrote New Year's pieces, rather than Christmas ones.
