He was not in any sense, a man of pretensions: simple, straight forward, firm, where principle was concerned, yet kind and conciliatory, he will be most regretted, where best known. He was emphatically a man to be trusted, in the evil times, he was beset on all sides, and though suffering severely, still stood immovable. Irreproachable in all the relations of society, as a husband, a father, and a citizen, his name will long be remembered and revered.

"Resolved, That this Grand Lodge deeply regret the loss which we, in common with the whole. Masonic community, have sustained in the death of this worthy and respected Father in Masonry, and that the Altar and regalia be clothed with the usual badges of Mourning, also, that the R G, Secretary be directed to transmit a copy of this resolution to his family. All of which is respectfully submitted.
