    Excerpt from The History of Henry Esmond

    England, whither my parents took me for my education; and where I made the acquaintance of Mr. Warrington, whom my children never saw. When it pleased Heaven, in the bloom of his youth, and after but a few months of a most happy union, to remove him from me, I owed my recovery from the grief which that calamity caused me, mainly to my dearest father's tenderness, and then to the blessings vouchsafed to me in the birth of my two beloved boys. I know the fatal differences which separated them in politics never disunited their hearts; and as I can love them both, whether wearing the King's colors or the Republic's, I am sure that they love me and one another, and him above all, my father and theirs, the dearest friend of. Their childhood, the noble gentleman who bred them from their infancy in the practice and knowledge of Truth, and Love, and Honor.

    My children will never forget the appearance and figure of their reverend grandfather and I wish I possessed the art of drawing (which my papa had in perfection), so that I could leave to our descendants a portrait of one who was so respected. My father was of a dark complexion, with a very great forehead and dark hazel eyes, overhung by eye brows which remained black long after his hair was white.

    His nose was aquiline, his smile extraordinary sweet. How well I remember it, and how little any description I can write can recall his image! He was of rather low stature, not being above five feet seven inches in height; he used to laugh at my sons, whom he called his crutches, and say they were grown too tall for him to lean upon. But small as he was, he had a perfect grace and majesty of deport ment, such as I have never seen in this country, except, perhaps in our friend Mr. Washington, and commanded respect wherever he appeared.
