A District Attorney of the United States, and

He was, at every period of his life, well deserving of his Country by his courage, his fidelity, and his devotedness to the publick service; equalled by few in original power, practical wisdom, and judicial learning and acuteness; surpassed in the love of honor, justice and truth, by none.
