with whom he made his home in his old age, and in whose house he d. 13 Dec.
1822, a. 89. He was a staunch supporter of the established Theology, and a
rigid disciplinarian, both in the church and in the family. His intellect was
clear, strong, and logical, and he had an ample fund of grim humor. Both of
these characteristics were manifest, not only in his sermons and familiar con-
versation, but in a volume published by him in 1802, entitled " A Treatise on
the Nature and Importance of the Sacraments." He was tall, well-formed, and
athletic; and his favorite mode of travelling was on horseback. He was
among the last, if not the very last in Hk., to wear the full-bottomed wig,
cocked hat, breeches, and white-topped boots, — which costume gave him a
strikingly venerable appearance.
