Excerpt from Sketches of the Life, Writings, and Opinions of Thomas Jefferson: With Selections of the Most Valuable Portions of His Voluminous and Unrivaled Private Correspondence
The materials for this volume are principally derived from the posthumous works of Mr. Jefferson himself, lately published by his grandson, Thomas Jefferson Randolph. These works were te ceived with extraordinary approbation by one great portion of the public, as wasthe case, indeed, with every thing that ever came from that remarkable man and by another considerable portion, with a corresponding degree of dissatisfaction, always to be expect ed from the well known opinions of the Author on certain funda mental points of principle, and the strongly marked division of pub lic sentiment on those points.
