[p. 47] Pinehurst was inaugurated with the end in view of establishing a place under the most favorable conditions, where those suffering from ill-health could escape our severe winters and restore their strength at moderate cost. In this he was eminently successful. Those familiar with it, who shared in the good he planned to do, speak of it in the highest terms. And by no means the least of the good was his genial personality, which made the place brighter for those who came to it.

There is left to us the delightful memory of a man of pure character and noble purpose, who used his opportunities for the worthiest ends; a friend of all that is good, a lover of his kind, he has made the world better, and too early, as we think, he has passed from this earthly scene which needs such to forward its highest welfare.
