Excerpt from opening chapter:
"In 1769, I became a member of the legislature by the choice of the county in which I live, and so continued until it was closed by the Revolution. I made one effort in that body for the permission of the emancipation of slaves, which was rejected: and indeed, during the regal government, nothing liberal could expect success.

Overview

Excerpt from opening chapter:
"In 1769, I became a member of the legislature by the choice of the county in which I live, and so continued until it was closed by the Revolution. I made one effort in that body for the permission of the emancipation of slaves, which was rejected: and indeed, during the regal government, nothing liberal could expect success. Our minds were circumscribed within narrow limits, by an habitual belief that it was our duty to be subordinate to the mother country in all matters of government, to direct all our labors in subservience to her interests, and even to observe a bigoted intolerance for all religions but hers. The difficulties with our representatives were of habit and despair, not of reflection and conviction."

Not what I expected. Interesting from an historical perspective, but a little hard to read. Not much personal information, but a lot of history.

This electronic edition had some of the traditional flaws associated with electronic translations. There were symbols where letters should be and there were breaks at odd times on the pages. These did not occur often but if the reader is not accustomed to reading old English it would cause them concern. I, however, wasn't really bothered and was very glad this work had been made into an ebook.

This book is written during the country's revolution years. The old english vocabulary used and written in the book is hard to understand and does not come up when 'look-up' is used (NOOK). Not as entertaining and informative as I thought it would read.

Fascinating to me, reading Jefferson's own words as he wrote them.
