From the Author: "It is proper that Thomas Jefferson, the architect of American democracy, should also have been one of the architects and founders of the City of Washington, which is both a symbol and a product of our democratic institutions. It is, historically fitting that the National Capital of a republic that is made up of most of the cultural groups and racial strains of the world should have been conceived and built by immigrants."
"The man who dreamed and planned the Capital of the world's greatest democracy was Pierre Charles L'Engant - a French immigrant."
"The Man who designed the White House was James Hoban - an Irish immigrant."
"One of the men who decorated the Capital was Giovanni Andrei - an Italian immigrant."
"These are but a few of the thousands of men who have given their brains, their talents and their genius to America. Others, less conspicuous, millions of them, have given the work of their hands and the devotion of their hearts to make of this country the most flourishing democracy in the world."
"Thomas Jefferson, the many-sided genius who, among other things also helped to plan the Capital City of the Nation, as a matter of course encouraged scholars, scientists, and men of letters to settle in this country, with resulting enrichment of our culture."
"This rich collection of letters and documents will prove a veritable mine of information and be a source of permanent usefulness to those who are interested not merely in Jefferson but also in city planning and in the early history of our country. I am proud to have my department publish."
