Томас Джеферсон

PREFACE
I WROТE and delivered these lectuxes not only in great haste, but under great pressure. At the time the promise to deliver them was made, Congress was expected to adjourn about the middle of June. It adjourned about the fust of September. This suЬ­ tracted two and one-half months from my time. I deemed it my duty later to devote two and one-half weeks of the time remajnjng to campaign :field work in behalf of the election to the Presidency of one of Mr. Jefferson’s successors, Governor Woodrow WJ.lson. Тhе natuxal inference from all this is that the work may, and probaЬly does, contain errors. I have sought as much as possiЬle to bring the past bodily into the present Ьуquotations from dead actors. Тhе reader will find а very free use of italics. It is not good taste; but the hearer was thereby spared much hearing, and the reader will Ье spared much reading. Italicizing the salient point of а quotation is my way of saving words of comment, wblch other– wise would Ье necessary. Nо man can entirely divorce blmself from his likings and dislikings. I have tried to do it; but I have for long loved world democracy and its apostles, and disliked special privilege and its Ьene:ficiaries and upholders. Тhere is no American about whom more has been written than Мr. Jefferson. In addition to the standard histories of the United States and what they record concerning him, there is а distinct Je:ffersonian Ьibli­ ography. The list below, under the heading «Bibliography,» contains articles, pam.pblets, and books, especially appertaining to Mr. Jefferson, wblch I have read either recently, or in times past.
