In the eyes of the broad circles of society, he enjoyed the reputation of exemplary family man and a man with humane and liberal views. In fact, his political views were deeply conservative, that was clearly evident in the meetings of the fight against the revolutionary movement and the direction of domestic policy in 1880.
