* In his person, which rose to 
near six feet, he was mus- 
cular, & capable of enduring 
much bodily as well as 
mental fatigue. His coun- 
tenance indicated intellect, 
particularly his eye, the 
motions of which were 
quick & piercing. On first 
acquaintance, his manner & 
air impressed with an idea 
of proud reserve : but no 
man, in private society, un- 
bent himself more, or mani- 
fested less self-importance.'
