2409. EDUCATION, The People and.—

Above all things, I hope the education of the
common people will be attended to; convinced
that on their good senses we may rely with
the most security for the preservation of a
due degree of liberty. [156]
To James Madison. Ford ed., iv, 480.
(P. 1787)


In Congress edition: (ii, 332,) “Educate and inform
the whole mass of the people. Enable them to
see that it is their interest to preserve peace and order
and they will preserve them. And it requires no very
high degree of education to convince them of this.
They are the only sure reliance for the preservatior
of our liberty.”—Editor.
