Name this nineteenth-century Justice:
[His] religion was the moving principle of his life. It filled him with every Christian grace. Faith, hope, and charity led him in the high career which we have been reviewing. The humblest received his kindness, while the great were charmed with courtesy. The servants of his family could hardly understand his kindness, when they contrasted it with the treatment of their servants by others. In early life he manumitted all the slaves he inherited from his father. The old ones he supported by monthly allowances of money till they died. The allowances were always in small silver pieces—none exceeding fifty cents—as more convenient, and not so liable as to be taken improperly by those with whom they might deal.
Answer: Chief Justice Roger Taney—the first Catholic on the Supreme Court of the United States, and the author of the infamous opinion in Dred Scott. (Source: Samuel Tyler, Memoir of R.B. Taney, L.L.D. p. 478 (1872).)
