Michigan Judges

George G Bates

He had inflicted a blow upon Judge Mundy. Uncle Jake Howard sat by my side when I made that speech, and the eagle disappeared. [At this point Robert Foster, the janitor, came into the room bearing the " basswood " eagle on his shoulder, and the enthusiasm was unbounded. One wing of the proud bird was gone, but otherwise it seemed to have stood the test of time about as well as Mr. Bates.] Well, I see I did not quite kill the bird—only winged him.
It was on that beautiful May morning, 45 years ago, that I proceeded to the senatorial chamber in company with that elegant gentleman, Henry S. Cole, and I was there presented to the Supreme Court of the territory. The judges were just about beginning the business of the day. Solomon Sibley has been already alluded to by Judge Wells.
He was a native of Massachusetts, and as pure a man as God ever created. In early life he started with the great tide of emigration westward and reached Muskingum, on the Ohio river.
