Can this be said of any of our government officials today?
“His integrity was most pure, his justice the most inflexible I have ever known, no motives of interest or consanguinity, of friendship or hatred, being able to bias his decision. He was indeed, in every sense of the words, a wise, a good, and a great man.”
–Thomas Jefferson, on George Washington, in a letter to Dr. Walter Jones, 1814
