brown hair, blue eyes, and fair complexion — a fine-look-
ing man and a man who was much respected for his good
judgment and integrity. His wife was a paralytic, and
he used to walk into her sitting-room and, offering her
his arm, lead her out to the table to her meals. He was
made an Esquire * and often served as referee, his judg-
ment being usually accepted as decisive."
