Himself a hero worshipper, he saluted Napolean from his ship while it was passing near Corsica, the birth place of the great hero. One who saw him in France remembered,
"I see him now leaning over and looking down upon Napoleon's tomb, and saying, ' A great man, a great force! Shiva! Shiva!""Can anyone, my dear friend, have faith or resignation in the Lord unless he himself is a HERO?"
