2417. EDUCATION, The Republic and.—

I have two great measures at heart, without
which no republic can maintain itself in
strength. 1. That of general education, to
enable every man to judge for himself what
will secure or endanger his freedom. 2. To
divide every county into hundreds, of such
size that all the children of each will be within
reach of a central school in it.—
To John Tyler. Washington ed. v, 525. Ford ed., ix, 277.
(M. 1810)
