their leave. The Judge was greatly amused at the incident and
often related it with relish to his friends.

All of us were greatly shocked when learning of his sudden
death. He was on his way to Concord to attend a sitting of the

law term when it occurred. He luul his satchel with him, hllecl
with papers that bore upon questions to be discussed. Among
them were the ones relating to the case of State vs. Gerry, wherein
Judge Carpenter, and some associates, had taken the ]K)sition
that the statute out of which the case arose was unconst it ulional
and void; Judge Doe that it was not. There had been long and
earnest arguments on the question raised, and as the Judge started
on his fatal journey he felt ready for the final conflict. Only
three days before he had said to an associate who heUl liis view, while
showing him a draft of a tentative opinion, "rm going to con-
vince those gentlem.en that they are wrnrujr Poor man, he did
not live to even meet with them again. The opinion in 1 he case
was handed down in June by a divided ( "ourt of 4 to ?y\ tiie statute
was thereby held to l)e unconstitutionaL

Judge Doe was buried beside his first born son in Rolhnsford,
on the bank of the Piscataqua. On a natural elevation covered
by a growth of ])ines, and far away from human habitation is a
large boulder, on the face of which is inscribed the one word,
"Doe." One standing there may look through l^ranches to the
broad and silent river at his feet. It is a peaceful spot in which
to rest for one whose life was constant labor. No sound breaks
in upon it save the sighing of the wind, and the voicing of the
birds, among the trees.

Brother Hening's final estimate of Judge Doe's influence and
character is very fitting and I quote in part:

"To exaggerate his influence upon the jurisprudence of New
Hampshire would probably be impossible. * * * To compare
and contrast him with other great common law Judges in the
Old and in the New England and other states of the American
Union and finally to assign him to some imaginary niche between
well known English or American Judges, would be a task as
difficult for the writer as the result would be unsatisfactory to the
reader. But if a comparison should be attempted, his peers
nmst certainly be sought among those few who have profoundly
revolutionized existing ideas of common law administration and
of the law of evidence, who have guided us by historical researches
to the birth of legal conceptions and have skilfully separated
legal truth from the matrix of circumstance."

refining influences of the home circle. He was of high moral

and prepossessing appearance, deservedly popular among his

remarkable clearness of insight, the power of accurate observa-
tion and a keen, patient and discriminating judgment.

"In politics he was a democrat, and by his ability, shrewd,

two he was honored by an election to the Legisiatiuc, and
served for the years 1845 and 1846. \n 18()3 he was a member

and a fine example of consecrated womanhood.
Active in temperance and missionary work, Mrs.
Palmer gave most valuable aid to her husband in
all the churches of which he was pastor. Devoted
to her children, it is their testimony that she was
one of the best mothers God ever gave to a New
England home." Gh.: 1-Mary Ella, b. Aug. 7,
