Klappentext

Excerpt from The Intellectual Torch, Vol. 3: Developing a Plan for the Universal Dissemination of Knowledge and Virtue by Means of Free Public Libraries One late forenoon in the winter of 1815, the 4th of December to be exact, a young man walked through the streets of Washington toward the place where Congress was about to assemble. Comely in appearance, still in his twenties, and brisk in his walk, his usually observant manner seemed a bit dulled by preoccupation. Perhaps his thoughts were of the Congressional session he was about to witness, a privilege which he had long coveted and anticipated. Possibly they were of the recent war with England, plain evidence of which lay ahead on his path down Pennsylvania Avenue, in the Capitol, burnt and ruined by the British the preceding year. Such is the egotism of young manhood, however, even amidst attractive and interesting surroundings, it is far more likely that he was considering again his favorite project, his "new idea," to which he fondly desired to call the attention of Congressmen and Legislators. Partly conceived fifteen years before and shortly afterward worked out in actual practice, temporarily laid aside while he secured his professional education, a few months previous he had resolved to devote himself to it anew. He had even called upon President Madison and secured his approbation of his plan. Now, in Washington, he had been devoting himself to writing for the newspapers, and he may have been this morning planning the little volume, almost ready for the printer, of these newspaper contributions which he intended to issue under the imposing pseudonym, "Discipulus Libertatis atque Humanitatis." At any rate his thoughts were pleasant, but suddenly diverted. He writes thus in a later work, "The Portraiture of Domestic Slavery."
