THE

LIFE OF GEORGE MASON

1725-1792

BY

KATE MASON ROWLAND

INCLUDING HIS SPEECHES, PUBLIC PAPERS, AND CORRE-
SPONDENCE; WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY

GENERAL FITZHUGH LEE

VOLUME 1

There is a time when men shape for their land

Its institutions 'mid some tempest's roar,
Just as the waves that thunder on the strand

Shape out and round the shore.

These rise before me; and there Mason stands,

The Constitution-maker, firm and bold,
Like Bernal Diaz, planting with kind hands
Fair trees to blaze in gold.

James Barron Hope, Yorktown Centennial Ode."
