He was only 5 ft. 4% in. in height and rather slim, though he bore the hardship of army life as well as could be expected considering his age and size. He had seen service in the British army. There were times when he was crippled by rheumatism to some extent but he was never away from the Company long and was with it at the last. He died in Fayston, November 25th, 1881.
