    • From The History of Cape Cod: The Annals of Barnstable County by Frederick Freeman, p. 611-612:

      Dr. L. was eminent in his profession. Early a member of the Mass. Med. Soc., his alma mater conferred on him the honorary M. D. in 1824. About 60 years he was diligently and successfully engaged in he duties of his profession in the town of his adoption, his name intimately associated with the healing art and influence decided in elevating the standard of professional character -- his practice ever marked with conscientious prudence -- sympathizingly patient and forbearing in his treatment of chronic complaints, and skillfully prompt in epidemic or occasional diseases -- characteristics always of a good physician. Unostentatious and humble, simple in his habits, gentlemanly in all his intercourse, a dignified sense of honor pervading his whole life, the traits of kindness and liberality emphatically the law of his heart, practically a believer in the precepts of Jesus, a good citizen, a safe and judicious friend, he had the confidence and respect of his associates and was held in esteem as far as his name was known.
