He was not particularly given to words of appreciation or compliment, but when he made friends he held them with hooks of steel. 'He was jealous of the honor of his neighbors,' who loved and trusted him. His Church and his minister and the ordinances of religion and the assemblies of the people for worship, were very dear to him."
