Few men have entered on the state o life with more encouraging and flattering prospects than the subject of this notice. Blessed with health, and fortune smiling upon him, enjoying the affections of an amiable wife, with their little offspring about them - the world presented itself with its various attractions arrayed in glittering aspect. But he whose mercies are over all his works, has called him to give an account of his stewardship."
