His tastes were scholarly and refined. His reading was extensive in nearly
all departments of literature and science, and in some favored ones ex-
haustive and minute. The mystic problems of metaphysics had for him
a special charm, and he was familiar and fully acquainted with the litera-
ture and learning of mental science. He was also peculiarly fond of that
higher and nobler criticism which has for its aim the elimination of truth
in all branches of knowledge. Possessing a fine library, and having ample
time to indulge his literary tastes, he became one of the best read and
most generally informed men that the writer ever knew. Yet his mod-
esty, equal to his merits, led him to conceal rather than to obtrude his

attainments upon the notice of others. Though learned beyond most
young men, there was nothing pedantic either in his disposition or con-
versation. He wielded a facile and graceful pen, and it is to be regretted
that he seldom employed it to minister to the amusement and instruction
of others.

" The moral character of Mr. Riddle was unexceptional in its purity,
and adorned with many graces. His disposition was kind and affection-
ate ; his spirit genial and placable as childhood itself, and his domestic
attachments strong and enduring. Though a great and almost constant
sufferer from physical weakness and bodily ailments of various kinds, he
preserved the equanimity of his spirit, bore his afflictions with philosophic
fortitude, and remained to the last the idol as he was the ornament of his
family circle."

est sons one-half of his real estate in 1855, and sold the remainder in 1856.

Riddle received his collegiate education at Union University, where, after
his graduation in 1854, he was for a short time assistant professor. He
was graduated at the Lebanon (Tennessee) Law School in 1857, and prac-
tised his profession for a short time at Ripley, Miss. He removed to
Smith County, Tenn., in 1.858, and continued there until the beginning of
the war of the Rebellion ; during the war he served on the staff of Gen.
Marcus J. Wright. In 1865, Mr. Riddle removed to Lebanon, and was
clerk and master of chancery there for ten years. He was elected to Con-
gress in 1875, and re-elected in 1876, to a seat in the Forty-fifth Congress.
His services as a statesman marked him as a man of a high order of intel-
lect and a judicious legislator. One of his colleagues in congress said of
Mr. Riddle: "No more zealous, upright, and conscientious member was
ever seated in that body. His life and temper were gentle, and although
firm and fearless in the advocacy of the true and the right as his studious
intellect saw it, his demeanor was ever marked by a knightly courtesy and
consideration for those who differed from him in opinion. His speeches,
— always characterized by a scholarly grace and finish, — were replete

with learning and research." Another, who was well acquainted with
him, has said: "He was a man of thorough intellectual training, and in
his life of unremitting labor had acquired distinction in many fields of
useful knowledge. He was an exemplary and life-time member of the
Baptist Church, and in that best and highest of all the walks of human
life, he was distinguished for his piety and a pure and spotless life. He
was courteous and affable and deservedly popular." Mr. Riddle was
broken down by overwork and retired from the active business of life to
his home at Lebanon, where he died on the 29th of March, 1879, greatly
and deservedly lamented by all who knew him. I have before me numer-
ous testimonials to his many eminent qualities of both head and heart,
presented by his distinguished associates at the bar and in Congress, but
for want of space I cannot publish them in this work. The portrait in
this book was subscribed for by Mr. Riddle about one year before his
death. Mrs. Riddle was a suitable companion for so good and great a
man ; a woman of amiable qualities and refined tastes.

Gillie-A. Riddle 4 (1), only daughter of Wiley 3 (1) and his wife, Ruth
