ated from Yale in 1842. Studied law at Harvard, 1843-

resentative to Congress, three terms, 1867 to 1873.

of the Maine Historical Society, the New England Historic
Genealogical Society, and of the Colonial Society of

"As a lawyer he commands profound respect. His knowl-
edge of the law is said to be encyclopedic, and his insight
unusually keen. His decisions, and those of the court
over which he presides, are quoted in every State in the
Union. As a public speaker he ranks high. He has the
faculty of winning and holding the attention of his au-
dience from the first word; this is due, in part, to his
keen, incisive way of putting things, in part to his com-
manding presence, and in part to the ever bubbling
stream of humor which runs through all he says. In his
old stump-speaking days, his political opponents, after



134 Maine

being unmercifully roasted by him, used to leave the hall,
vowing that they had had a capital time." — {The Cadet.)
