1484 Jefferson the President: Second Term 1805-1809 Jefferson and His Time Volume Five, by Dumas Malone (read 23 Apr 1978) (Pulitzer History prize in 1975) This takes Jefferson to the end of his second term: Mar 3, 1809. This volume drug a little; also the author is too partial. When he criticizes he also excuses. Much of the volume dealt with Aaron Burr's trial--but never was what Burr did explained in detail. The Chesapeake affair and the embargo also took up a lot of space in the book. All in all, not the most interesting of the five volumes, but I'm glad I read the book. The sixth and final volume has not yet been published. [I read it Nov 26, 1981.] ( )
