Excerpt from Our Presidents and Their Office, Including Parallel Lives of the Presidents of the People, of the United States and of Several Contemporaries, and a History of the Presidency

No man ever excelled Lord Bacon in expressing a great thought in a few words: he says, "History makes men wise." In addition to making men wise, history contributes largely to their pleasure; and the study of history, like the practice of charity, should begin at home. To us, George Washington is of more importance than all the Old World Captains together from Nimrod to Kitchener. Thomas Jefferson more nearly concerns us than all transatlantic statesmen from Lycurgus to Lloyd-George. Whether we voted for him or not, William Howard Taft, our President, is of more interest to us than all the crowned heads of earth.

Sensible men will welcome "Our Presidents and Their Office" as a timely and valuable contribution to our literature. The Presidency of this Republic is the greatest political office known among men. Whether merit or geographical location, whether luck or accident has elevated them to that exalted office - and in the elections of most of them there was something of each and all - they and their careers are well worth study.
