His character was a beautiful union
of the sensibility and frankness of
youth with the firmness and judgment
of manhood. A sense of universal justice
marked his life and the humblest creature
of God was an object of his benevolence.
Humanity hailed him as a guardian,
for an ardent love of science and
literature was made subservient to the
duties of his profession and the energies
of a long and active life were consecrated
to the relief of suffering man.
Religion welcomed him as a friend and
his spirit sanctified by the domestic virtues
calmly rested at the sunset of life as it
had done in the brightness of its meridian
in the bosom of God.
