Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Covering the years from 1781 into the 1820s, these valuableaccounts remain the chief source of information about Thomas Jefferson's domesticand personal life, interests, habits, appearance, and day-to-day activities atMonticello.

Isaac Jefferson and Edmund Bacon were each sixty-fiveyears old when their recollections were recorded. What they remember best, ofcourse, are scenes from the past made vivid and immediate by details involving theirown experience. Although their recollections of Jefferson differ in a number ofways, apparent in both accounts is a concern for the master whose involvement innational affairs made his life so different from their own.
