3736. HISTORY, Value of.—[continued].

History, by apprising
the people of the past, will enable them to
judge of the future; it will avail them of the
experience of other times and other nations;
it will qualify them as judges of the actions
and designs of men; it will enable them to
know ambition under every disguise it May
assume; and knowing it, to defeat its views.—
