Behold the Silent Man of the Mountains! If modesty be a virtue, and silence a mark of deep meditation, then Earle must be a very worthy young man. He has been a faithful disciple of "Thutmosis" and consequently is an undoubted authority on Egyptian history. He was never known to laugh aloud, though a bland smile sometimes causes the corners of his mouth to slightly separate. After he had distinguished himself as a historian he took up the mysteries of the legal profession. Earle is a kind, courteous gentleman and will make a record of which his many friends may well be proud.

-The Kentuckian, 1914
