1146. CARR (Dabney), Character.—

His character was of a high order. A spotless
integrity, sound judgment, handsome imagination,
enriched by education and reading, quick
and clear in his conceptions, of correct and
ready elocution, impressing every hearer with
the sincerity of the heart from which it flowed.
His firmness was inflexible in whatever he
thought was right; but when no moral principle
stood in the way, never had man more
of the milk of human kindness, of indulgence,
of softness, of pleasantry of conversation and
conduct. The number of his friends and the
warmth of their affection, were proofs of his
worth, and of their estimate of it. To give to
those now living, an idea of the affliction produced
by his death in the minds of all who
knew him, I liken it to that lately felt by themselves
on the death of his eldest son, Peter
Carr, so like in all his endowments and moral
qualities, and whose recollection can never
recur without a deep-drawn sigh from the
bosom of any one who knew him.—
To Dabney Carr, Jr. Washington ed. vi, 528. Ford ed., x, 17.
