9188. WYTHE (George), Cato of America.—

No man ever left behind him a character
more venerated than George Wythe. His
virtue was of the purest tint; his integrity inflexible
and his justice exact; of warm patriotism,
and, devoted as he was to liberty and the
natural and equal rights of man, he might truly
be called the Cato of his country, without the
avarice of the Roman, for a more disinterested
person never lived. [518]
To John Saunderson. Washington ed. i, 114.
(M. 1820)


George Wythe was one of the signers of the
Declaration, Jefferson, Chief Justice Marshall and
Henry Clay were among his law pupils.—Editor.
