Excerpt from Social Life in the Early Republic: With Numerous Reproductions of Portraits, Miniatures, and Residences States, all brought together in the closer relations that are only possible in a small city. In the beautiful Washington of to-day, with its interesting, varied, kaleidoscopic life, it would be impossible to find a drawing-room like that of Mrs. Madison, Mrs. Edward Livingston, or Mrs. John Quincy Adams, in which all the great and little folk were to be met in one evening, as Mr. Josiah Quincy encountered them when he visited Wash ington in 1 826. Many scattered centres of interest there are to-day, but no one centre towards which the rays of light focus, as in that earlier time when the mistress of the White House welcomed to her drawing-room Webster, Clay, Calhoun, Marshall, Story, Washington Irving, Sir Charles Bagot, Lord Ashburton, Father Richards, David Crockett, Mat thew Lyon, the good Indian Pushmataha, Eagle of the Choctaws, and his eulogist John Randolph.
