Ann Lucas Birle is a scholar at the International Center for Jefferson Studies. Lisa A. Francavilla is Managing Editor of The Papers of Thomas Jefferson: Retirement Series.
This fastidiously edited, colorfully illustrated diary is filled with gems of description. It can be read in a number of ways: as the recreation of a lost world, a tour of an uncommon mind, or a piece of history that centers on the life of a proud American in the company of a people who, in 1838-39, still refused to give credit to the revolutionary energy that Jefferson unleashed....Reading the diary, one gets caught up in the gossip of Victorian times, while making the acquaintance of one whose rich life in a way symbolizes both intellectual and emotional aspirations of the founders' offspring. --The Advocate
