His wisdom illustrated the
principles of law and equity.
His eloquence commanded
the admiration of his peers.
Beloved for his stainless
integrity, his memory dwells
in the hearts of his people.
Shining in the pure excellence
of virtue and refinement,
he exemplified, with dignity
and simplicity, with gentle
courtesy and Christian faith,
the true heart of chivalry
in Southern manhood.
