He possessed many qualities of manhood that gave him the
respect and esteem of all with wlioni he eanio in contact.
The selfii5hness of human nature was in him Kss developed
than in the average of mankind. It was never his practice
to drive a close bargain or to barter for his undue gain.
He was notably willing to live and let live — to do unto
others as he would have them do unto him. He sought and
knew no other way than to perform his duties and to meet
his engagements promptly. He offended no one and lived
a quiet, useful life. Politically Mr. Brainerd was a life-
long Democrat, giving his unvarying support to the party
from Andrew Jackson's time to the present. His blame-
less life was well rounded out in fourscore years. His
good exanii)les and his memory will long be cherished by
