    Let those care to whom the trust is committed; but never beg for that trust when, in my own opinion, I have been of so little service, and have sacrificed both health and domestic happiness at the shrine of my country. Louder and louder did he inveigh against them. Up now rose Mr. It was the first I had heard of them.

    Went; continued in the water near half an hour. Lippincott, I told him my late conduct in the Senate had been such as would render any opinion of mine very ungracious at court, and perhaps he had best never make any mention of my name. Muhlenberg, and other friends, get the idea suggested of answering the President's address without any title, in contempt of our deliberations, which still continue on that subject.

    I mentioned a favorable 4 disposition in some of the Maryland gentlemen to be in unison with the Pennsylvanian delegation. Even the Vice-President himself seemed struck in a heap--Izard would have said rotundity. The Secretary was going on: I must speak or nobody would. He trembled, and several times could scarce make out to read, though it must be supposed he had often read it before. This is an endless business. Thomas Jefferson had his own unique personal style of dress, documented many times by visitors, slaves, friends, acquaintances, and family.

The Journal Of William Maclay United States Senator From Pennsylvania 1789 To 1791 book

I should think him less of a philosopher than a partizan. He passed censure on the conduct of the Vice-President, said he made himself too busy. Smith, the wife of the republican newspaper editor Samuel Harrison Smith, recorded the social and political life of the United States from Jefferson's presidency to Jackson's.

But if he is led, it must be without letting him know that he is so; in other words, he must not see the string. He allowed himself frequent evenings at the theater, a pastime he particularly enjoyed, and he usually appeared at Mrs. He has the same discursive manner and love of paradox, with the same appearance of sobriety and cool reason.

Jefferson, 'the violent democrat, the vulgar demagogue, the bold atheist and profligate man I have so often heard denounced by the federalists? I stepped up to him, asked for his health, and fell into common-place chat.

Charles Francis Adams Philadelphia: J. Jefferson changed his fashion slowly hence doubtless was the origin of his leather red breeches so known to some in their day Had a most profuse sweat, but found a little of a headache.

He finished with a formal bow, and the President was conducted out of the middle window into the gallery, and the oath was administered by the Chancellor. George Tucker. Just nothing at all done.

Up now rose Mr. If she ever put on a frown it would be on this occasion—What does he mean! I believe I had best be guarded too. I have never met any one who presided at his own table, with the same playful grace and urbanity, blended with perfect dignity.

This work is in the public domain in the United States of America, and possibly other nations. I have been at home the whole day; he did not call. The Spanish Ambassador's house was adorned with transparent paintings; the French Minister's house was illuminated, and had some transparent pieces; the Hall was grandly illuminated, and after all this the people went to bed.

I did not minute this on Thursday, thinking that perhaps some mistake had happened which would explain itself. About ten dressed in my best clothes; went for Mr.

As I came back, met General St. Adams rose in his chair and expressed the greatest surprise that anything should be objected to on account of its being taken from the practice of that Government under which we had lived so long and happily formerly; that he was for a dignified and respectable government, and as far as he knew the sentiments of people they thought as he did; that for his part he was one of the first in the late contest [the Revolution], and, if he could have thought of this, he never would have drawn his sword.

Strange, indeed, that in that very country [America], where the flame of freedom had been kindled, an attempt should be made to introduce these absurdities and humiliating distinctions which the hand of reason, aided by our example, was prostrating in the heart of Europe.

I declared myself totally of a different opinion; that at present it was impossible to add to the respect entertained for General Washington; that if you gave him the title of any foreign prince or potentate, a belief would follow that the manners of that prince and his modes of government would be adopted by the President.

To be clean shaved, shirted, and powdered, to make your bows with grace, and to be master of small chat on the weather, play, or newspaper anecdote of the day, are the highest qualifications necessary.
