Clapp wrote for The New York Leader, then edited by John Clancy and Charles G. Halpine (Miles O'Reilly).
Halpine was one of Greeley's "great favorites." Greeley ran for President in 1872; Halpine's the Flaunting Lie had been popularly misattributed to him and was used against him by Southern politicians.
Halpine is mentioned as a frequenter of Pfaff's who, along with others, found Nast "amusing" and "took him to theatres and other cozy resorts and 'showed him the town.'"
Henry Clapp is quoted as saying, "After the Saturday Press failed, I went on the Citizen with Miles O'Reilly."
Halpine was a "great favorite" of Horace Greeley and he worked under him at the Tribune.
Halpine is mentioned as one of Nast's colleagues at Frank Leslie's Illustrated Paper (21-2).
Halpine was a friend of O'Brien's.
