"It does not come within the scope or design of this work, to attempt any sketch of Mr. Jefferson's public life, or any discussion of his political or religious opinions. Its simple purpose is, so to describe his home, his personal appearance, and all his personal and business habits, as to set the man fully before the reader -- as farmer, manufacturer, and master.." -- Preface.
