on this occasion. "Few men
ever passed through a long life
more generally beloved or quitted
it more sincerely lamented. Of
manners mild & conciliatory, of
candor almost inimitable; of
affections sincere; of morals
irreproachable; with a fancy ardent
& fertile; with an understanding
acute & penetrating; with feelings
animated yet refined & correct;
with a mind enriched by literature
& approved by observation;
with an eloquence impetuous yet
fascinating & impressive; in the
profession & practice of our holy
religion sincere & devout; in his
friendships warm & unalterable;
in domestic life, amiable &
affectionate; in public employments,
faithful, intelligent &
upright. Distinguished by such
qualities, society sustains no
ordinary loss in a magistrate
so wise; a husband & parent so
affectionate; a friend so sincere;
& a citizen so inestimable."
