I have to have my Jefferson papers. Agrarian utopian society nice idea, unfortunately not very practical. Aside from some of the questionable decisions in his personal life, this is one of our greatest Americans, a true Renaissance man, brilliant write, and probably the ablest politician among the founding fatheres.

First words
(Introduction by Merrill D. Peterson): Thomas Jefferson came upon the world's stage at the dawn of "the age of the democratic revolution."
Resolved that it be an instruction to the said deputies when assembled in General Congress with the deputies from the other states of British America to propose to the said Congress that an humble and dutiful address be presented to his majesty begging leave to lay before him as chief magistrate of the British empire the united complaints of his majesty's subjects in America; complaints which are excited by many incroachments and usurpations, attempted to be made by the legislature of one part of the empire, upon those rights which god and the laws have given equally and independently to all.
