affable manners, and his sympathetic feelings, particularly qualified him
for this important, and in many respects, trying situation. In him the poor
ever found a kind friend, and in his family a comfortable and pleasant home.
Since his retirement from the superintendence of the town farm he a has been
one of the overseers of the poor, and has made comfortable at his own house
hundreds of the wandering poor, who have had cause to bless him and his
family for that kind attention which has been received from them. He leaves
the partner of his youth, who has for several years been entirely deprived

and an indulgent parent; and the community generally will long remember him
as a kind neighbor, a valuable citizen, and in every situation in life an
