9219. YOUNG MEN, Self-government and.—

Three sons, and hopeful ones too, are a
rich treasure. I rejoice when I hear of young
men of virtue and talents, worthy to receive,
and likely to preserve the splendid inheritance
of self-government, which we have acquired
and shaped for them.—
To Judge Tyler. Washington ed. iv, 549.
(W. 1804)
