2325. DUTY TO MANKIND.—[continued].

I have done for my
country, and for all mankind, all that I
could do, and I now resign my soul, without
fear, to my God; my daughter, to my country.
Rayner's Life of Jefferson.554.


B. L. Rayner, in his Life of Jefferson, says:
“These were the last words Jefferson articulated.
* * * All that was heard from him afterwards, was
a hurried repetition, in indistinct and scarcely audible
accents, of his favorite ejaculation, Nunc Dimittis,
Domine—Nunc Dimittis, Domine.”
