Living within a few hour*' ride of the

reverre of the custom then and t ow pre

lotte Coanty who kn* \\ him. the question
has often been akd why Mr Randolph,
with his dwell'ng on an enknence over
looking the Staunton River, with Ms b.o.d

have named his residence "Roanoke** end

In talking with old people ysara •*
abou* Fiandolph. and esped Jly with
thoe*i who kn. w him perwmnlVy. 1 have |
been often impressed with the vurlous n<l
contradictory view- entertained about
him Some looked upon him with fear,
many with admiration, and others with
derision Hut all agreed thut he was a
"wonderful man” and of unaurpassed
mental brilliancy Every one would aay
that "when Randolph tra rated it was In

companied by postilions.”
My father was High Rise riff of Charlotte
County for • number or year* fthnt
officer then collected th#* state and county

high regard for him and always support- ,
and him. except wh*a Randolph opposed

on one occasion to go over the calcula

Kaniolph replied: "An official like you. t

Another fpvorfte re* olle* tlon often re
