3601. GREEKS, Ancient.—

Should these
thoughts [227] on the subject of national government
furnish a single idea which may be useful
to them[the Greeks], I shall fancy it a
tribute rendered to the manes of your Homer,
your Demosthenes, and the splendid constellation
of sages and heroes, whose blood is still
flowing in your veins, and whose merits are still
resting, as a heavy debt, on the shoulders of
the living, and the future races of men.—
To M. Coray. Washington ed. vii, 324.
(M. 1823)


Jefferson, at the request of M. Coray, wrote a
paper outlining a system of government for Greece.—Editor.
