|A bust statue of the older Tom Lefroy|
Sunday, 16 June 2013
This weekend on June 16, 2013 we have Father's Day once again here in the U.S., so I thought it would be nice to quote something "fatherly" about Tom.
This quote is taken from the "Memoir of Chief Justice Lefroy" by his son, Thomas Lefroy, M.A., Q.C. You can read the Memoir online HERE. Here is the first sentence of the Memoir written by his son, Thomas, himself:
The following Memoir of the Right Honourable Thomas Langlois Lefroy, late Chief Justice of Ireland, has been written, not so much as a record of his public career as of those traits of character which, in private life, endeared him to all who had the privilege of enjoying his society; and in the hope that the bright example he has left behind, in the unswerving consistency of his political principles, the simplicity of his Christian faith, and his deep humility, may be blessed to many who knew him not while here.
