I have led you with some delays, into
the presence of the sage himself. But
when the principal object is grand, its ac
cessories that should be previously exam
ined, must be many. To a noble resi
dence, the-appronch can fitly be Only by
a long avenue. When you visit a renown
ed general in his camp, you cannot ex
pect to be carried to headquarters, with
out calling at the out posts. It would be
both provoking and stupid if, in going to
see an obscure person, one were detained
by ushers, and a ceremonial ; but when
you are about to pay your court to a sov
ereign, you like to see him in all his state, '
and you judge of his dignity in proportion
to your detention.
Dressed, within doors, as I saw him
last, no longer in the red breeches, which
were once famous as his favorite and
rather conspicuous attire ; but still vindi
cating by a sangnine waistcoat, his at
tachment to that Republican color; in
gray shorts, small silver kneebuckles, gray
woollen stockings, black slippers, a blue
body-coat, surmounted by a gray spencer ;
tall, and though little of person and deci
dedly graceful and agile of motion and
carriage, yet long and ill limbed, Mr. Jef
ferson's figure was commanding and strik
ing, 4hougb bad, and his face most ani.
mated and agreeable, although remarka
bly ugly. His legs, you perceive, by no
means shunned observation ; yet they
were scarcely larger at the knee than in
the ankle,-and had never been conscious
of a calf. Still, though without strength.
they had always borne him along with
vigor and suppleness. 1 hese bodily qual-
lies and a health almost
preserved, in a singular degree, to the.
Kerv close of his Jong life. At the time I
speak of, when he was in r his eighty first
year, be not Only mounted his horse with
out assistance and rode habitually some
ten miles a day, but dismounting at a
fence breast-high, would leap over it, by
only placing his hand on the topmost rail.
He then walked not only well and switt-
v, but with lightness and springliness ol
tread, such as few young men even have.
It was a restless activity ol mind, wbicn
informed all this unusual mobility of bo
dy ; and the two, 1 think, were, in him,
greatly alike. For bis intellect had, like
bit person, more size than shape, more
suppleness than solidity, and effected its
ends by continuity of action not mass of
power, byrinanipulalion not muscularity:
You may batter to pieces wnu a srnnu
hammer that which a cannonball would
not shiver. He was never idle : nay, hard
ly, a moment still. He rose early and
was up late, through his life ; and was
alftlay, whenever out on foot or a horse
back, at study, at work, or in conversa
tion. If bis legs and fingers were at rest,
his tongue was sure to be a-going. In
deed, even whea seated in his library in
a low Spanish chair, he held forth to bis
visitors in an almost endless How ot nne
discourse ; his body seemed impatient of
keeping still for his mind, shifted bis posi
tion all the while, and so twisted itself
that you might almost-have thought be
was attitudinizing. Meantime, Ins lace.
expressive as it was ugly, was not much
less busy than bis iimbs, in bearing its
part in the conversation, and kept up, all
ihe while, the most speaking by play, an
eloquence of the countenance as great as
ueIv features could well have. It stood
to his conversation like the artful help of

ling. His head was well' set and well
carried, but bad the Jacobinical shape and
air; his hair was originally reddish. but
turned to an ill bleached foxiness ; his fore
head was Urge, but not well modelled in
those main frontat regions which bespeak
loftiness of thought and creativeness.
His brows were neither strong nor so A,
but irregular and -uncertain, as those of
one who was wanting in will, and yet had
not much feeling. Ilia nose was mean
a small tube ending in a. sudden bulb ; it
was much cocked up, arid derived from
tbatBhape a character of pertness and
vulgarity. His mouth was rather large,
but the lips thin and not well cut ; the ex
pression sitting on them bland but not be
nevolent, conciliating'ratber than kindly ;
its meaning assigned his emotions to the
manners, not the heart to policy, not the
temper. The chin was like the forehead,
broader than it was strong. Such were
his lineaments in detail : quite indifferent,
separately : and yet, altogether, very ex
pressive and agreeable. As bis motions,
light and easy, were the contradiction of
his ill made limbs, so was his pleasing and
animated countenance that of features, of
themselves, ignoble npart.
Lastly, bis conversation : He certainly
was ojne of the best talkers I have ever
listened to ; copious in the extreme, with

formed, and continually dealing out bis
information, but rather as if to gratify you.

in what Was once its best school the Pa
risian saloons he understood conversa
tion thoroughly as an art; and he made
the most of it, as an engine of personal
influence and for the propagation of his
party opinions. Towards the inculcation
of these, his conversation, whatever the
subject, was usually bent, except when
a scientific matter was in question ; ei
ther he knew no literature, law, history,
philosophy, morals, not theology, or. ho
could not talk of them, unless as connect

of winning and of controlling men, always
lay chiefly in bis skill of personal com
munication ; for, even Ih f public bodies;;
he rarely made speeches : nor have we
any record of his having ever shone as an
orator. In short, not feeling strong enough
to attack men's convictions by the front
gate of manful eloquence, he stole in by
the back door of addresses and of insinu
ation in private. '"

no doubt, the great end ; and when the
