In the crisis of 1857, which struck Norway veryheavily, his means were severely taxed by his en-deavors to sustain deserving men whom he had pre-viously assisted, and a succession of heavy failuresamong his agents and business connections madeit impossible for him to meet his engagements.There are thousands of smart men in this countrywho would have gone through his ordeal, goingthrough their creditors at the same time, withoutmoulting a feather; but the old man, punctiliousas to the value of an unsullied name, could not en-dure the humiliation of even a partial failure andremain in the city, where every incident remindedhim of his changed conditions.
