The life of Washington reveals to us the state of society in our land, the manners and customs of the people, their joys and griefs, one hundred years ago. As a statesman, as a general, as a thoroughly good man, he stands pre-eminent. He was so emphatically the Father of his country that it may almost be said that he created the Republic.
