In fact, in all the relations of life he sustained a nobel, irreproachable character, demonstrating in person the best qualities of a Christian man and patriotic citizen. Having lived to an age beyond the term usually vouch safed, and done will in whatever his capacious mind and busy bands were summoned to do, he has retired from the stage of human action, with the testimony of a good conscience and charity toward all, leaving "the essence of a good name,"
"Like one who wrays the drapery of his couch
About him, and lies down to pleasant dreams"
