Bleckley’s Tribute to Akerman.

The following inscription on the tomb of the late Amos T. Akerman, who was so renowned as a lawyer and a citizen, was written by Judge Bleckley:

In thought clear and strong;
In purpose pure and elevated;
In moral courage immovable.
He lived loyal to his convictions,
Avowing them with candor
And supporting them with firmness.
A friend of humanity.
In his zeal to serve others
He shrunk from no peril to himself.
He was able, faithful, true.
