Michigan

By. H. G. Wells

Henry H. Crapo, plain, honest, always useful. In public or private life I have never known one man speak harshly of Henry H. Crapo, who was emphatically the people's Governor from 1865 to 1868. His legislative experience in our state has left a record well known to his immediate constituents and deemed creditable throughout Michigan. He was eminently practical in all his efforts in life. In commercial, mercantile and manufacturing pursuits before he made his residence in the west, he had acquired such reputation as method, industry and integrity will ever give to any man, and the same qualities gave to him in this State success in his extensive lumber business and farm improvements. I have thus far spoken of the men, now dead, who have honored ' themselves and the State in the discharge of executive duties, and the rule for myself forbids that I should speak of the character of those who still live.
