Thiougli all tho rars of his strenuous life, crowded with Hffalra of the largest public Impoit, he always found time to attend divine worship, to consider the living problem of the organized life of the church and to give to her concerns tlie best of his mind and heart. "Mr. Morgan gave generously of his means to the church, but those of us who have been privileged to sit with him during the sessions of tho general con vention can nuvcr forget tho striking proof of the fact that he always gave first of nil himself For nearly three weeks the sessions lasted. Day after day he was in his place, patiently listening to the long debates. Sometimes the sessions were evidently dreary, and If he was at certain moments restless there were many of us who hhared his silent protest and stayed with him. "Of hla many services to his own parish and to this diocese others will speak, but I would voice hero the deep appreciation of his generous support of tho Cathedral. "My estimate o Mr. Morgan's character Is summed up In two words vision nnfl action, he saw nnd he did. He was n, man of few words. Every day there came to him visions of great nnd powerful nnd beautiful things, and every moment was tilled with the doing of them. He did not tarry for discussion, a single brief sen tence was sutllclent and forthwith he pro reeded to act He came, he saw, he did, and so he conquered. "With nil his mastery of men and things ho was as simple as u child, and so waa Impulsive and very human. He had the Puritan reserve biding a deep tenderness and making him lonely. He was Im periously Benerous. Complex as was his nature be waa perfectly honest and sin cere, so that his friends, his fellow coun trymen, tho world, battled at first, under stood and honored him.
