OR the first time In
near a generation the
anniversary of Thomas
Apr II 1J will receive

The celebration of this
great American's natal
, day li a peculiarly ap
propriate time to point out incident! In
hit career which have been passed
over by the historians, but are none
the less fraught with deep Interest to
the minds of those who look upon
him as one of the most commanding
figures in the ranks of the liberators
who participate- In the struggle
against British supremacy.
There are continually strange and
uncommon items relating to Jeffer
son's career coming to the surface',
and what an author fifty years ago
cast aside as unimportant and not
worthy of publication, the researcher
of today Is apt to pronounce welcome
additions to biographical knowledge.
Some of the early scripts of Jefferson,
now in the possession of Miss Sarah
N. Randolph great-granddaughter of
the famous Virginian were hastily ex
amined by William Curtis, who wrote
a life of Jefferson, and much of the
material therein contained was not
considered available for his purpose.
Among these documents are now dis
covered certain Items discarded by
the distinguished biographer, but
which nevertheless proved of much
Importance In deciphering a very es
sential element In the heraldic as
well as religious suggestions made by
Jefferson during the formative period
of our republic.
Among these seemingly unimportant
notes and memoranda appears evi
dence to the effect that In 1774, two
years before Jefferson wrote the
Declaration of. Independence, he used
the term "United States of America,"
the first time that such, present-day
denomination was given to the con
federating colonies. Further con
formation of Jefferson's deep fore
sight Is found in the same record, or
semi-diary, of 1774, where the follow
lng remarkable entry occurs:
"A proper device (Instead of arms)
for the American States United, would
be the father presenting the bundle
of rods to his sons."
This was Intended as a seal of the
United 8tates and shows that as early
s the fall of 1774 in suggesting this
design Jefferson believed in separa-

In the said rebellion evolving into a
revolution which would result In the
necessity for a national 'signature or
seal. He not only designed the em
blematic or symbolic part, but also
supplied a motto which likewise ap
pears among the stray notes of 1774,
couched in the following words:
"For a motto (on device for Ameri

was taken from ' his copy of Aesop's
Fables. The exact details of thto an
cient story which appealed so em
phatically to Jefferson are as follows:

their disputes by his exhortations, he
determined to give them a practical
illustration of the evils of disunion.
For this purpose be one day told
them to bring htm a bundle of sticks,
and when they had done so, placed the
faggot In the hands of each of them
in succession, ordering them to break
it to pieces. They each tried with all
their strength, and failed. He next
unclosed (untied) the faggot and took
the stick separately. One by one be
again put them into their hands, and
then they broke them easily. He
then addressed them in these words:
"'My sons, It you are of one mind
and unite to assist each other, you
be as this faggot, uninjured by all
the attempts of your ene
mies; but if you are divided
among yourselves, you will
be broken as easily as these
In the foregoing summary
we have the Jeffersonlan
Idea expressed as it would
relate itself to the union of
the thirteen colonies. . It
was direct, convincing and
logical, as shown in some of
the present state seals.
Two years later than the
date of the entry referred to,
July 4, 1776. we see Jeffer
son, Franklin and Adams ap
pointed a committee to de
vise a seal for the young re
public. His co-commltteemen,
like himself, were known to
be thoroughly informed on
heraldic matters, and it was
natural that the Continental
Congress would select people
of their culture and learning
for the performance of such
an Important task. Hence on
the same day that the Declaration of
Independence was Issued, July 4, a com
mittee to. devise a seal was created.
While present-day ' Americans have
always been informed by writers, his
torians and orators of the Intense
heat of that auspicious Fourth of
July, and that because of the almost
unbearable atmosphere of the sultry
weather prevailing the delegates as
sembled, hastily debated and quickly
signed the colonial Magna Charter la
order to get out of the congressional
ball, the facts are that the day was
unusually pleasant and characteristic
of a most agreeable summer climate.
This statement. Involving as It does
a correction of hitherto accepted his
torical material, rests on the author
ity of an entry found among Jeffer
son's stray notes, an entry never until
now given printed publicity. Innum
erable writers have drawn highly col
ored word pictures of the dreadful and
stifling weather conditions existing on
that memorable day, but we aubmlt
that far more reliance Is to be placed
on the evidence penned by a distin
guished and careful observer who was
present on the occasion in the role of
an active' and honorable delegate.
Among the Jeffersonlan script is a
sheet bearing the following notations:
A. M. .
We .are thus Informed that at tb
time of the passage of the Declara
tion of Independence, on the early aft
ernoon of July 4. 1776, the tempera
ture, according to Jefferson's record,
was 76 degrees a striking coinci
dence In the year of the century and
the number of heat degrees, both rep
resented by the numerals, 78. Natur
ally the question arises as to how Jef
ferson came to make this exact ob
servation regarding the weather con
revivers as brighten good varnish for
a short time by dissolving part of the
resins they contain.
"One of the best possible furniture

ditions of that famous day; also what
might have been his method or ap
pliance utilized for registering the
heat of the atmosphere. Here again
the supposedly valueless documents
furnish corroborative evidence of Jef
ferson's ability to obtain the desired
information. On July 4, 1776, Jeffer
son called on Mr. Sparhawk to settle
an account, and this entry appears
among his papers as witness of a cer
tain purchase and payment:
"July 4. 1776. Paid Sparhawk for a
thermometer, 3. 15. Paid for 7 pr.
(probably pair) women's gloves, 27.
Gave to charity 1-6."
The foregoing entry removes all
doubt as to Jefferson's ability to de
termine accurately the 76 degrees of
heat on the noon of July 4th, and es
tablishes the fact that It was a calm
and delightfully tempered summer's
day. ' ,
Further search among Jefferson's
papers brings to light the correct
name of the German family which fur
nished him with room and board at
the time when he wrpte the -Declaration
and devised a number of designs
for a seal of the young republic, one
"Pd. Mrs. Graaf one week's lodging,
On the 9th day of July, 1776, the
committee on seal met at the tavern
of the London Coffee House, and while
the report formulated on that occa
sion contains much of general inter
est. It is only necessary to consider In
this connection the Items in which the
hand of Jefferson is seen. He was
made chairman of the committee, and
It was he who addressed congress on
the subject. While Jefferson's device
was not accepted by the committee,
he assisted In creating a conjoint de
vice In which the Ideas of Dr. Frank
lin, himself and a French artist
named Du Slraltier were blended. In
the report to congress In the fall of
1776 Jefferson presented the .double
sided idea of a seal on the obverse, or
front, of which the following appear
"A shield divided Into six fields upon
which were emblems of the leading
European nations; above the shield
the eye of Providence; the shield was
supported on the right side by the
goddesB of Liberty, on a staff she held
a Phrygian cap: on the left side of
the shield the goddess of Justice held
forth the scales of Justice In the left,
and a sword In the right hand. Around
the entire device the thirteen shields
of the colonies appeared. - with their
initials blazoned upon them." On the
back, or reverse, of the proposed seal
the Franklin Idea was displayed as
"Legend round the . whole achieve
ment, 'Seal of the United States of
America. MDCCLXXVI.' . ,
"On the other aide of the said Great
Seal should be the following device:
"Pharoah sitting in an open chariot,
a crown on his head, and a sword In
his "right hand, passing through the
divided waters of the Red Sea, in pur
suit of the Israelites. Rays from a
pillar of Are In the cloud, expressive
of the divine presence and command,

shore, and extending his hand over
the tea, causes It to averthrow Phar

But congress rejected the device
and report, dismissed the committee,
and appointed a new one.. Yet Jef
ferson's keen Interest In the heraldic
creation of a symbolic teal did not
wane. He kept In touch with several
future committees and submitted two
other Important designs, both of which

political leanings of the author. When
submitting the sketch of a proposed
seal he addressed the committee as
"As I have already observed. Dr.
Franklin's and my thoughts, by some
unexplalnable coincidence are very
similar, inasmuch that we have both
sought to symbolize Liberty; and
furthermore as a typical Illustration
of the elimination or slavery, chose
the children of Israel. In representing
these Klng-rldden people, it Is my pri
mary desire to Indicate on our seal
that the success of the Hebrews was
due, not so much to their skill and
genlous In battle, ut principally to
the fact that they were God fearing,
and confided in the Almighty, who.
though Invisible, was- present In the
'pillar' and 'cloud' which led them.
I propose that the seal contain an
obverse and reverse side; on the for
mer the Children of Israel, led by a
'cloud' by day and a 'pillar of fire' by
night, on the latter Hengist and Horsa
the Saxon chiefs, from whom we claim
the honor of being descended. - and
government we are now about to as
sume." The history of Hengist and Horsa Is
one of great Interest, and anyone
thoroughly absorbed In the story of
the seal can not afford to miss It.
Jefferson believed that Indirectly we
Inherited from these bold Germans
our form of government. The history
of England begins shortly before the
Christian era (55 B. C), when Caesar
first landed and conquered an un
civilized race known as the Britons.
The Romans about the third century
had effected marked changes In the
Island and had established the Chris
tian religion, and Introduced Roman
laws and rules, but the Britons, a
barbarous race, so Incessantly attack
ed them, that late in the fifth century
they abandoned England.
Hengist and Horsa were the leaders
of the Saxons, or Germans, who dis
puted the ownership of the British soil
and finally conquered the country.
They were defeated In three battles,
Horsa being slain in action at Eggles
ford (455). Hengist Immediately took
possession of Kent and nearly the
entire southern half of England. He
established his court at Canterbury,
and the laws which he enforced were
in good taste with governments of
that early period. He reigned about
30 years, and laid the foundation of
that Great England which has occu
pied so large space in the history
of the world.
Jefferson was somewhat nettled
over the disfavor shown his designs
by the critics of tbe Continental Con
gress, and betrayed his annoyance
when be wrote:
"If the Continental Congress will
not accept the stirring motto, 'Re
bellion to Tyrants Is Obedience to
God,' I will employ It In my personal
