Apparently, it was very painful as well. Do you think it partially accounts for his crotchety nature?

I should think it wouldn't help! Varina remarked on having to deal with him when he was being imperious, and it wasn't fun. I suspect it had a good deal to do with his having to do everything himself - a lot of times people with illnesses are very controlling.

LOC says these photos of Davis were taken around 1888 (not sure how accurate that is though as both are undated):

The above photo looks like he is younger than the ones below as there are not as many wrinkles on his face.
