p. 571 James Herrington, a brother of Theophilus, represented Clarendon in 1806 and 1807, was judge of probate in 1803 and 1804, and assistant judge of the county court in 1806 and 1807.  He was a man of good natural ability and had influence in the town and county.  He also had a habit of "sleeping at the most unnatural times and places.  Returning from court on horse-back he would perhaps waken to find that his horse had strayed into some barn-yard by the wayside and was helping himself to supper."  His style of living, like that of his neighbors, was far from luxurious.  A sea captain, hearing that his old school-fellow had become a judge in Vermont, paid him a visit.  His visions of possible magnificence were quickly dispelled and, in nautical terms more forcible than elegant, he pictured the simplicity of the judge'e hospitality.  "For supper a pan of milk with 'johnny cake,' which sunk as quick as a lead sinker in the milk.  Each person was provided with a spoon and, gathering about the pan, one after another 'made a dive,' and finally the captain made a dive, but failed to get anything.  In the morning the judge conducted him to a shed and brought him a gourd filled with water in which to perform his ablutions.  Breakfast was a repetition of supper, and the captain departed a wiser man."
