    Notes 
    • In 1876 Mr. Webb retired from the active pursuit of the profession in consequence of failing health. His previous career had been one of unwearied activity. Endowed with remarkable energy of character, and vigour both of mind and body, he entered earnestly upon whatever work he took in hand, bringing to it much method and good judgment. In Brazil he delighted in going through hardships, in order to show of what an Englishman was capable. He never spared himself, and had a great contempt for any man who was of luxurious or effeminate habits. Although very fond of professional pursuits, his tastes were varied, and a genial disposition and an aptitude for social intercourse earned for him a large circle of friends. He was somewhat brusque in manner, but was most kind-hearted, thoroughly straightforward and of the strictest integrity, and warm friend.
