Its records attest his exemplary character as a public officer. --In life, he commanded the respect and esteem of the Bench and the Bar; and his death has caused sincere regret for the loss of one who was true to his public office, and courteous and kind in its discharge. "The Court would further express their condolence with the widow and children of the deceased, and tender to them its sympathy for a loss severe and irreparable to his family in so excellent and so kind a father."
