Henry Bromfield wore this wig. Henry Bromfield Rogers wrote of his grandfather: "I can see him now in his large powdered wig, his square brown coat and vest with broad pockets and lapels, small black clothes, nice silk stockings, silver buckle and gold headed cane——as he walked up the Ave. to church under the Shade of its old stately elms; —How delighted he was to see me, he would pat me on the head, tell me some humorous story of olden time and load me with fruit. Many of my happiest times I passed with him. All of the townspeople venerated the Colonel, as they called him, they waited for him at the church till he passed in and they would not leave it again till he had gone out. Good old man; we shall never see the likes of him again. The age of " Suaveter in modo " has gone by. He enjoyed uninterrupted health until the last month of his life—he had fine spirits, was always cheerful, pleasant and contented, was more remarkable as upward of the last 25 years of his life was spent in entire solitude, excepting occasionally a visit from his friends and relations. I thank God that I have been permitted to see and know thee. It makes me think better of human nature."
