In person, Mr. Henry was lean rather than fleshy. He was rather above than below the comnion height, but had a stoop in his shoulders which prevented him from appearing as tall as he really was. In his moments of animation, he had the habit of straightening his frame, and add- ing to his apparent stature. He wore a brown wig, which exhibited no indication of any great care in the dressing. Over his shoulder he wore a brown camlet cloak. Under this his clothing was black somethiug the worse for wear. The ex- pression of hiw countenance was that of His ,___ appeared to be .always absorbed in what, for the time, occupied his attention. His forehead was high and spacious, and the skin of.his face more than usually wrinkled for a man of fifty. His eyes were small and deeply set in his head, but were of a bright blue colour, and twin- kled much in their sockets. In short. Mr. Henry's appearance had. nothing very remarkable as lie sat at rest. You might readily have mistaken him for a common planter, who cured very little about 1 is personal appearance. In hu< manners he was uniformly respectful and courteous. Candles were brought into the court-house when the examination of the witnesses closed; and the fudges put it to the option of the bar, whether they would goon with the argument that night or adjourn until the next day.
