I see the chair in which Washington sat. I see the pictured sun with gilded rays on the back of the chair - the pictured sun that, throughout the convention, so puzzled Franklin, because he could not tell whether it was rising or setting. And, as I look about me, I am swept by a feeling of solemnity.Here I am in the hall of the demi-gods of whom I read when a boy.Here I am where Washington was, where Franklin was, where Madison was, where Hamilton was.Here I am where the Constitution was born.Over and over again these feelings sweep through me, because the clutch of the things that one hears in his youth is a clutch indeed.But the clutch of the things that one hears in his youth is often a clutch that should be broken. The clutch of everything that is not true should be broken. The clutch of the Constitution is not true.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
