4899. MACON (Nathaniel) Confidence in.—[continued].

While such men as yourself
and your worthy colleagues of the legislature,
and such characters as compose the executive
administration, are watching for us all,
I slumber without fear, and review in my
dreams the visions of antiquity. [317]
To Nathaniel Macon. Washington ed. vii, 111. Ford ed., x, 120.
(M. 1819)


Nathaniel Macon was Speaker of the House of
Representatives from 1801 to 1806, and subsequently
United States Senator from North Carolina. John
Randolph of Roanoke made him one of the legatees
of his estate, and said of him in his will, “he is the
best, the purest, and wisest man I ever knew”.——Editor.
