Have been engaged today and have been reflecting on the physiognomy of a man who called me in as I was passing. It has so much the resemblance of a man inured to a penitentiary, I cannot believe him to be an honest individual. Yet he is a resident in this county and I believe was raised here and I have never heard a word alleged against him. I will not observe his deportment because he has a remarkably unfavorable top to his column. I set him down to be licentious and dishonest.
