Justice is blind; justice is stern—perhaps it is thus in other lands. In the U. S., however, the Chief Justice has laughter in his eye and kindness in his heart. His decisions are the law of the land, but his proportions are its admiration. He is a very substantial answer to the aphorism that nobody loves a fat man.
In all his long and honorable career that led him to the high and happy seat of Chief Justice of the U. S., there is only one portion which lies in shadow. That is his tenure as Chief Executive of the Nation. But having escaped from the shadow of what was a valley for him, he has attained to the Elysium beyond—to honor, love, obedience, troops of friends.
