Excerpt from Life, Journals and Letters of Henry Alford, D. D, 1873: Late Dean of CanterburyUnder this deep sorrow the whole course of the widower's life was changed. Having been called to the Bar, he left his infant son at Tamworth, and once went the Western Circuit; but afterwards he changed his plan of life, and returned to Oxford to attend divinity lectures, and was ordained Deacon on Trinity Sunday, 1813, at a place with which his son was afterwards associated, Quebec Chapel, London. His character is thus described by a legal friend who knew him intimately3 I should say that he had a cheerful and even temper, an affectionate disposition and delicate feelings, combined with great courage, which pre vented him from assenting to or acquiescing in anything he disapproved of, and yet screened him from ever giving offence. He was very sensible and straightforward; he had not, I think, any decided taste for general literature; at least his study appeared confined to one science, and there he was indefatigable. He had a clear, discriminating, and, I think, sagacious mind.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
