endears him to the hearts of the American His authorship of the Declaration of places him on the highest pinnacle of and accords to him the honor of being the greatest defender of human rights and personal liberty that has everg graced the cutcheon of illustrious He had no admiration for kings and His efforts to prevent the permanency of a ed aristocracy were crowned with success when he
