angry at the importunity of his visitor,
and determined to put an end to the

Francisco was a. powerfully built
I man, standing six feet and one inch in
height, and weighed-85U poonds. His
muscular system , wa . extraordinarily
developed, and he' had been known to
shoulder with ease a cannon weighing
hundred pounds;' and a gentle
njan ofnndoubied veracity, still living
in Virginia who knew him well, says,
