The history of these five great men illustrates the value to the government of unswerving honesty and faith fulness in great public affairs. The conscience, trained from childhood to respect the solemn obligations of an oath, is illustrated in the lives of these patriots. I have, therefore, no apology to offer for uniting these sketches of their lives in one book. There are writers of history who would minimize or obscure the work of these citi zens; overlook their early training and ignore the faith that was the basis of their character.
