Excerpt from The Temple of Melekartha, Vol. 3 of 3
This adviser of kings and statesmen was yet in the prime season of life. A vivacious frankness - a cheerfulness not abhorrent of jol lity and jests, played upon his features. His bushy brows, his fair and ample forehead, and his full-toned melodious voice, declared the man of vigorous and unshackled understanding - the man whose intellectual power was not a moody force; but a perpetual energy. There was too, in his manner, much of that artless spontaneity (disdainful of the mask of solemn pretensions) which belongs to master minds, and bears them on far foremost among competitors.
