DYER, Eliphalet [1721-1807] -- American jurist, Delegate

Delegate (1774)

John Adams said of him: "Dyer is long winded and roundabout, obscure and cloudy, very talkative and very tedious, yet an honest worthy man, means and judges well." Another side of his character is exhibited in the record of expenses incurred by him as congressman in 1777 as rendered to and paid by Connecticut (The Connecticut Magazine, Jan.-Mar. 1906), which shows that he did not despise the good things of life.
