?hich aueh an excuse cannot be of
"S?'ordinary way of life was that of rlch cultivated country gentleman. Hia poUUcal poaa was that of a former, Tager for pimn Uvlng Hke the common Lople. But his piain Uvlng rcqulred JJe best house in Virginia. with a whole .nountam for its atte. anrrounded by 1MI thousand acres of land. which be oa-ned and his Blavea CUltlvated for *lm it aiso required a French cook. 5th the beaf wines. and Bwejtmeata #Peclallv Imported for his use. His ordinarv drcsa was such as became his ,ution. and when he was Mhilster in France he was ndmlreri for his oourte 0U? mannera no less than for his charming hoenJtallty. But when he be came Presldent. for reasone not hard Z eonjactura, ha lapeed Into oetenta tjous alovenllness and bad mannera, especially when deallng wltb the reprc .entatives of fou-ign countrlea Ha aharply crltlclfed the ooclal demeancr 0f Washington and Adatns, hla pr.de ressois, and ptofesscd for hlmself 1 great eagerness for republlcan alm pliclty" and an carnest deslra to aa rape "'he glara of royalty and nobll ity." British Mioister Astomshed. aii this affectatloa preaently brought him Into trouble with no leaa a peraon age than the new Brltlah aiihlater, who thui reported it: ?I called on htr. ltadiaon, who ae corripanied nie Ofliclally to intrcduce me to the Preeldent. Wa wenl w> getaer to the mai aion ho iae, 1 be? ing in full odiiial coetuma, as the etl qtiette of my place required on such a formai Introductlon of a mlnlater of Oreat Brltala to the PreBldent of the I'mted States. On aiTlvlng al the hall of audlence we found it etnpty, at which Mr. Ifadiaon aeemed aurpriaed, en.i proceeded to an entry leadlng t" the Presldenfa study. I followed him. Buppoalng that the Introductlon was to take place ln an adjoining room. At this moment Mr. Jefferson tntered the entry at the other end, and all three of us were packed in tbe narrow space, from which, to make room, I was obliged to back out. ln this awkward position my Introductlon to the Preel dent was made by Mr. tdadla m. -Mr. Jefferaon'a appearance * plained to me that the general clrcum Btaaoea of my receptlon hai nol been accldenta! but Btudled, I. in my otTI cial costume, found myself. at the hour of reception he had hlmaelf tppolnted, introduccd to a man as the Preeldent of the Unit^d States. nol merelv ln un undress lally atandlng ln allp pers down at the heels and both panta loons, coat and underclothea Indlca tive of utter alovenllnesa and Indlffer e.nce to appearancee, and In a state of negllgence actually Btudled." About the same time he formally ln troduced ir his offlclal dinners at the White House the nile that there shouid be no precedence and no assignment of aeats?that people shouid go in as they liked and take what seats they COUld find. Both the Britlsh and Spaniah min lsterr omcially reported offensive altu< atlons in which they found thtmselves involved through this rule. 1'ltiniately the diplomatic corps held a meetingoti theeubject to express thelr resentment, and the French Minister wrote Talley rand that "Washington BOClaty la turned upalde down." Mr. Jefferson found himself so anaoyed by the bear? ing of the Spaniah Minister. Seftor Yrujo, that he af-ked his recali, and had to submit to a snub from the Spanish government, which took no ej.iest. These and other troubles ln which this afftcted "sim plicity of life" involved him were prob? ably what led to his complete reversal Of these hablts toward the middle of his second Administration. From that time he became again the courtly hos* and courteous gentleman of Monticello or of the French mlaalon. V;ews Concerning England. Mr. Jefferaon'a expresslons of oplnlon concerning Kngland were so confllctlng at different pafteda a-- to suggest that they were uncandld and for a purpose. Thus he wrote at one time: "Xo two countrles upon earth have po rnany points of common interest and frieid shlp; and thelr rulers must be g?e?t bunglers indeed if with *uch dlsposl tlons they hreak rhem aBundeh" At another time, on'y a few months be? fore the Declaration, he wrote: "There ia not in the Rrltish Empire a man who more cordially loves a union with Great Brltain than I do." Some years later he wrote to Mr. Monroe, '"We have more reason to hate England than any nation on earth," and ti Wllliam Carmichael, "I consldered the Engltsh aa our nf.tural enemy, and as the only nation on earth that wlsh us 111 from the bottom of their souls." And to Lafajrette, ' England'B selflsh prlnciples render her ineapable of hon orable patronage or disinterested co operatlon." Then he discovered that Napoleon had outwltted him in secur ing from Spain the re-cesslon of Loulsi ana; and instantlv he was in love ag^in with England. He wrote to Eiving aton in France: "The day that Franc<j takes possession of New Orleans . . *eals the union of two natlons who, ln conjunction, can matntain exclusive possession of the ocean. From thr.t moment we must marry ouraelves to the British fleet and nation." He was unjuetly accused of irre ligion. He had asked James Madlson "whether the llberties of a nation could be thought secure when we have re mov-d their only firm basis, a convlc Haa in the mlnds of the people that th'M Hbartlea are of the gift of God." ln fact. no man had deeper rellglous feellng,?or a greater varlety of re ligioua bellef. H ? was born ln and adhered for a time to his parish church (Eplscopa!) in Virginia. At one time he wanted to bring over the Cal vinistic tinlver/rity at Geneva, with all Ita professors, and use it aa the basls for the Uivlverslty of Virginia. At an? other time he wished to do the samei with the equally Calvinlatlc I'rnverslty of Edlnburgh, and urged the Legls lature of Virginia to puy the expense af the transfer of the enttre fa< ulty and aaaume the reaponsibility of their support "for the good of our country ln general and the promotion of acl ence." Theae two unlveraltle.a he then regarded as pre-emlnent ln all Europe. Later (when he was past elghty, and had by this time become a Unitarlan.i he denounced Calvlnlsm In his uaual vehement way. "The flve polnta of Palvintsm," he wrote, "were h blaaphe moua abaurdity.?the hOCUg >OCUg phan taam of a God <reated by Calvln wliich, Hka another Cerberns, had one. body kar.d three heada." It would be more f pardonable. he aald "to believe in no God at all than to blaapheme Him by the atroclous attributes of Calvin." Such utterancea doubtleaa explain the frequent charge of iireligion. He never outgrew the vulgar and ilt-bred habit of anaerlng al rellgloua bellefi he could not at the moment share,?never learned that only a boor could lnsult the religioiiK <onvi.-tions of anybody. Opinions on Religion. in 1816, when ahready out of publle llfe. he allowed a pamphlet issued by Dr. Lyman Beecher to draw him into aome remarkable expreaalona ?d dres^.-d flral to an unknown Northern apondent, the more extreme state uieiits then taken out. and sent to the edltor of "The Rlchmond Enqulrer," with the reqiiest for their publlcatlon, the authorahlp to be carefully con Cealed. In tbe letter asklng this. he Ibea Dr. Beecher'a pamphlet aa ?the most bold and linpudent sttide New Knsland has ever taken in arro gating ati aecendancy over the reat of the I'nlon." He wrote: "1 am not afraid of ttie prleata TbO) ha\e trled upon me all their varioua batterlee, of ploua whlning, hypocrltlcal cantlng, lylng and olandertng, wlthout being able to glve ine one moment of paln. 1 have contemplated tiieir order, from the magi of the Kast t<> th.- salnts of the Weat, and I ha\e ioun.1 no dlffer ence ol character, but of more or less cautlon, in proportlon to the Informa tlon or Ignorance of those on whom th.ir Intereated dupertea were lo be pald off.

They were merely the pet ulance and apleen of a man haraaaed by political attach ainl newspaper abuse, or perhaps th* pose of a polttl cian-to affect his followera, the same polltlclan who thought it desirable to transform himself from a gentleman to an tincouth boor in order to r-ceive foreign ministers, in d"e republican atmpllclty." One of the most Inexcusable featurea in his DOlltleal stniggles was his use of the blackmailers. Callendei Fteneau and ofners. in his vlndl.tne warfare agains. Hamllton. The most mlaerahla pcandal of thal wbole period was a ecurrilous atta. k upon Hamilton s prl vate morals and offtdal Integrlty, pr pared and publlahed b) Callender. Son.e hfcetertena have even asserted that H waa aobmltted by him to Jeffer? son for approval before its publlcatlon, ^e attackl by other blackmailers. Mr. Jefferson knew at any rate with whom he waa dealing. for the man had already been ln prison, and he had par doned'hlm. He BOOn received a Just punlshment. for Callender turned upon him and Blandered hhn more vlllan oualy even than he had slandered Hamllton. on the same lines, and with as little cauae. Peraonal Relationa. No aooount of the man's great career Is . omplete whlch does not make eoma rr.antion of these odious detaila, but lt Is time to turn to another and more agreeable eide of him, as revealed in his peraonal relatlons to his political associates, to his followers. and his in tlmate friends. in the times that tned men-e souls. He rarely lost a friend or a follower. The foibles and ?ven the follles and worse that have been men tloned were known, but did not depme blm of tbp enthusiastlc adn.iratioii of the great partv whlch long ruled the country. They did not even detract materiallv from the affectionate rega^u ln which he came to be held by all who remembered the Revolutionary strug gle. Romfl placed him next to Waah tngton and Franklin; BOUM placed him bealde John Adama Most Arnerlcans counted him in the flrst half doz*n of ?the Revolutionary fathers." ln his family cir< le he was adored. Bverythlng Indleatea that be was the most 'affectionate of buabanda and the most davotad of parenta ln a period of storm and attack from unexpected quarten hla wlfa wrote of blnv: "He iP ao good hlmaelf. he cannot under !,,?,! bOW bad others can be." Hla nalghhora were all bla frlenda. They probably knew that tha real character of the man (however varlable it mlght aometimes aeem) . was revealed ln .his brlef letter, written at the request of a man who had named a BO* for him, ?I am sensible of the mark of eateem manlfested by the name you have given your BOn. Tell him from me that he muat conaider. as essentlally belonging to it. to love his friends and wish no 111 of hia enemies" His county and his state kept him in offlce aa long as pos sible, and aeemed alwaye eager for his advb'ft ln every emergenoy To them he was the one nnquestloned political authority: and his influence was ?Carceiy shak*n even by the dlsastrous fallure of his embargo pollcy or the plttful results from his hatred of the navy. ln fact. he had a genius for per viadlng not merely his friends but a majorlty of the voters that their 11b erties were only safe whlle he waa on guard, to aound the firrit alarm.
