but of a genius widely different. Greatness of soul they equally
possessed, and they equally reached the summit of glory; yet it was
å glory peculiar to each, and certainly acquired by very opposite

Fellow CITIZENS,
This volume, containing the Lives of the

OF THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC, GEORGE WASHINGTON and THOMAS JEFFERSON, is respectfully dedicated to you by the Author, in the hope and expectation, that their common services to their Country, and their joint labours in rearing the inestimable fabric of our FREE CONSTITUTION, may endear their virtues, wisdom, and patriotism to future generations : and that POSTERITY may derive as useful a lesson from the history of their lives, as their own generations experienced blessings from their labours.

In the example of great and illustrious men, our children will always find the best and mošt instructive lessons of social duty, and public spirit: and however you may be divided by party, or differ in principle, you cannot fail to derive a lesson of wisdom and tolerance from the historical fact, that the two great Fathers of our Republic, who differed so vitally upon the genius and nature of our federal government, both administered its supreme functions, under the same Constitution, with an equal measure of liberty, happiness, and prosperity to all.

STEPHEN SIMPSON. HAMILTON, March 17, 1833,
