Excerpt from Memoir of the Life, Character and Services of the Late Col. R. W. Loughery, "the Father of Texas Democracy": The Well Remembered Veteran Journalist and Stainless Patriot

No man who has ever walked upon this earth has been free from imperfections, there have been none who have es caped errors, both of act and judgment, and the subject of this memoir, 001. R. W. Loughery, was not an exception to the general rule, but e'en'the faults he had leaned to virtue's side. He was slow to think evil of others, that he was easily deceived - to the final loss of a competency which he had acquired by. Years of unremitting labor; a loss that befell him when the heyday of manhood was past and old age was at hand, He was so unselfish, that he to too great an extent subordinated his interests to those of others, and failed to ask for, and often refused to accept, the rewards that his services had richly earned, and that, at the time, would have been freely accorded him, but which later, when he greatly needed substantial recognition by his party, was denied him under a' system of politics that leads those in power to bestow their favors not as -ewards of merit, but with an eye-single to personal aggrandizement to prefer an obscure cross-roads politician who can com mand one vote in the state convention, to an old veteran, who has grown gray in the service of his country. He saved the frail barques of many politicians from disaster. He built up the political fortunes of several men who have since held high positions in the councils of the nation, but sought no honors for himself, when (for instance, within a few years after the overthrow of the Military Commission at Jefferson) he could have secured any office within the gift of the people of Texas.
