276 The Southwestern Historical Quarterly
George Thomas Wood was a devoted husband, a tender and
indulgent father, a warm and loyal friend, a kind neighbor, a
lenient and considerate master, and was ever the chief charm in
a most charming home. His friends came long journeys to enjoy
his genial companionship and boundless hospitality. His daugh-
ter remembers no single meal in her father's home which was not
shared with guests.
The monument under the moss garlanded Texas oaks says truly,
"Here sleeps a just man," but even the tributes from those who
survive to praise, those who knew and loved him, can give one but
a faint idea of the fineness, the lovableness, the beauty and dash
and glow of the real George T. Wood.
