To me he had a sort of personal magnetism, a personal magnetism that I have ouly myself experienced with reference to one other man - Parnell. Cardinal Vaughau's just and generous tribute to his illustrious predecessor may fitly end these reniiniscences. "Of all the men I have known none ever appeared tome so completely absorbed in the idea of auning at what was highest, noblest and purest. It was a sustained yearning after the true and the good, and this without effort, because it had grown to be the bent and tendency of hia Ufe."-
