"The force of mind and body which enabled him to deal wisely and promptly with every branch of public business; The justice which uniformly guided his policy; The benevolence which endeared him to all whom he ruled; The admirable candour and openness of mind which enabled him to learn from all who approached him; And the wonderful sweetness of disposition which subdued even his enemies can never be forgotten by those who knew him; And have produced lasting effects on the Indian Empire, in the service of which he spent his best years and lost his life. It was his hope that college, of which he first suggested the foundation, might promote among the youth of Rajputana the cardinal virtues of fortitude, temperance, justice and benevolence of which his own life gave a splendid example."
