Mears of cases quot could have failed to see in them the evidences of his thorough intimacy with All the branches of the English and american Law. No Man of late years has entered our profession More completely and thoroughly grounded m the principles of that profession than was Yonng Herbert Washington. It is not to be doubted that had he lived his career would have been one of great distinction in his profession. But while As yet hardly fully entered upon the race the state of his health compelled him to abandon his profession and to seek in travel and an out doors existence the restoration of his failing strength. In the Pursuit of this he Betook himself to an Otjen air life in the forests and Fields and on the streams and water highways of his native land. He spent Many Summers in bar Harbor visiting the great wilderness of Northern Maine Antl Canada and Winters on the wild bayous and inlets of Louisiana the tilt of Mexico and the Florida Rivers and coastline. Always an enthusiastic Lover of nature he became an ardent and skillful sportsman bringing Home with him Many trophies of the Chase and Many memorials of the Woods and Waters in the midst of which the later years of his life were spent. But alas it Wassail in vain it was too late and the pursuing relentless Fate the Shadow of which was often visible to his intimate friends overtook him at last and he has fallen while yet in the prime of his lite thus battled and disappointed in the Pursuit of what without peradventure would have been a most distinguished and useful career if life and health had been accorded to him. Herbert Washington was a Man of Fine literary tastes and accomplishments a Man of the most gentle and generous nature and refinement of feeling. I will Only add now that his life was As pure anal blameless As his character was admirable and that he was a consist int member of the protestant episcopal Church in the a fairs of which he was always greatly interested. In tie social Circle in which his Brief life a is passed he was greatly beloved and always a great favorite. Fie has breathed last far from his Home and the friends who were so deeply attached to him in the arid wastes of Arizona but he has left a record which though Brief is filled with Sweet and delightful memories. His widow his sister and his Little son now a child oif 8 years survive him. M. Russell Thayer the mount desert nurseries. Miller manager. We we. Herbert Washington. The following Elo fluent tribute is from judge Russ la Thayer of i Philadelphia to William Herbert Washington for years a prominent visitor to bar Harbor. Many friends and More especially his contemporaries of the l Iladel Hia har and the members of the social Circle of which he was a conspicuous ornament will be grieved t a Day upon hearing of the death of William Herbert Washington in the prime of his manhood at Castle Creek in Arizona whither he had gone for the Benefit of his health. He belonged to a family Wirich May truly be called without exciting any invidious feeling in the breast of any Man the noblest in America being a Lineal defendant of Lawrence Washington Grandfather of George Washington. Yet Herbert Washington was a Man of so much natural modesty that the writer of these lines although for Many years an intimate Friend does not remember to have Ever heard him refer to his own origin or to the celebrated family from which he was sprung. He had received a Liberal education and had prepared himself for the profession to which he was passionately devoted so thoroughly that few men have come to the mar with a More Complete knowledge of the Law its beginnings its principles its growth and Progress than he.
