838. BIRTHDAY, Jefferson's.—[continued].

The only birthday which
I recognize is that of my country's liberties. [50]
Rayner's Life of Jefferson. p. 18.


Jefferson thought he discovered in the birthday
celebrations of particular persons, a germ of aristocratical
distinction, which it was incumbent upon all
such persons, by a timely concert of example, to
crush in the bud.—Rayner's Life of Jefferson, p. 17.
