By Houdon Authors Note The author wishes to express her very great thanks to the Alder man Library of the University of Virginia for the unstinting gen erosity with which it has made available its books, its microfilms, and its manuscripts to a person whose admiration for Jefferson and his university is her only claim to such consideration. She is also deeply indebted to the American Philosophical Society, which has likewise most kindly put all its similar facilities at her disposal. Her particular thanks are due to the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. By awarding her a fellowship for the years 1945-46 and 1946-47 it has made the writing of this book possible in these difficult times. Contents i. The Empire o Liberty 3 ii.
