A MERICA has furnished to the
I world the most conspicuous
Apostle of Personal Liberty
that ever lived.
The Declaration of Independ
ence (the creation of his genius)
is an eternal monument to his fame
more enduring than statues of marble
As a statesman in Congress he advo
cated the brewing industry as an aid to
agriculture and national temperance ;
and upon several occasions he bought
and freighted rum, wine and whiskey
to the brave soldiers of the Revolution.
He himself declared that the juice of the
malt was never absent from his board.
Thomas Jefferson was a splendid
athlete, a crack shot; and in his prime
at the old Raleigh tavern he delighted
to enjoy his "cakes and ale" or dance
half through the night with the fair
maids of old Virginia.
At eighty-three he died, regretted by
the nation he helped to create. His
deeds and written thoughts absolutely
and irrefutably prove that good malt
beer is not injurious to mind or body,
