Էջ 104 - Without possessing any brilliancy, his judgment, in itself clear and steady, was inflexibly guided by honour and principle. No solicitations could make him promise what it would have been inconsistent with these principles to grant ; nor could any circumstances induce him to break or elude the promise which he had once given.
