Tom Lefroy Quote of the Week 31

Thomas Langlois Lefroy by George Engleheart
I wish to quote the next sentence after the one posted about Tom concerning his 'fatherly' attributes made in my last "Tom" quote.  It is in the first paragraph of the "Memoir of Chief Justice Lefroy" by his son Thomas Lefroy.  As I said before you can read the Memoir HERE.  The sentence gives us a wonderful picture of his enduring character:
To those who did know him, it will be interesting to retrace some of the steps of one who, through all the arduous duties of professional, political, and judicial life, seemed to live in constant communion with Him who was the source of that singularly unruffled peace of mind which characterized his whole career.
Yrs aff'ly,
Linda the Librarian
