"Few if any of Jefferson's contemporaries recognized an obligation to history so clearly as he did, and none exceeded him in his effort to discharge the debt... Because of this conscious effort, and because of his complete identity with the national purpose as it was pursued during his day, this and succeeding volumes take on a significant meaning. They are, first of all, the record of a man's career... But also, since the achievements of Jefferson's long career were extraordinarily fruitful, these volumes may be regarded as being, in part, a record of the origin, formation, and early growth of the Republic."
