Washington D.C. July 28 2017 I wonder sometimes if we as humans have not faltered in our esteeming of men, especially these last years falling to traps and false news and profiles of the media over men such as Trump or Obama not ever seeing any breadth of true work deserving of a monument such as the likes of Thomas Jefferson.
The men that we do really esteem, the men whom we call our Founding Fathers is because their unswerving character in the founding of the nation that shines forth like a light bright light.
The meticulous preservation of their writings justify all the accolades and deserving of the title Mr. President,
This is one of the reasons we are going through the notes and writings of our founding fathers like Thomas Jefferson and getting into the minds of the men who once led this country during its greatest crisis, a war for its independence like no other,
Our revolutionary war and our civil war are by the far the most important wars our nation has suffered becuase they were faught on our own soil for the reasons that would unite a great nation that would in the future help to free our world in wars vital to human history, wars faught against the monsters of white supremacy.
As I review the letters and writings of Thomas Jefferson the man I cannot help at this point but to dig further into any reference of any importance that helps to better define the man other than Ossian’s poems of which I am now in academic pursuit of more elucidation as the current literature does little to satisfy my need for the character of Ossian apart from the writer and Irish poet who re-interpreted the writings during Jefferson’s life time.
These things are of importance for if a man is esteemed it is because of his character and the character of man or even a women is often defined by their writings, their works, their piety or devotion and their love for literature.
So when reading the works of Thomas Jefferson how can one not allude to the speculation and investigation of Ossian’s poems, literature that Thomas Jefferson – one of our founding fathers – had a deep affection for.
On Ossian’s Poems, In Day 4 of our Journey through the life and times of Thomas Jefferson he writes:
Thomas Jefferson Feb. 25, 1773 Virga Mcpherson
To Chas. McPherson, Albemarle, in Virga Feb. 25, 1773 Dear Sir,
—Encouraged by the small acquaintance which I had the pleasure of having contracted with you during your residence in this country, I take the liberty of making the present application to you. I understood you were related to the gentleman of your name (Mr. James McPherson), to whom the world is so much indebted for the elegant collection, arrangement, and translation of Ossian’s poems.
These pieces have been and will, I think, during my life, continue to be to me the sources of daily pleasures.
The tender and the sublime emotions of the mind were never before so wrought up by the human hand.
I am not ashamed to own that I think this rude bard of the north (Ossian) the greatest poet that has ever existed.
Merely for the pleasure of reading his works I am become desirous of learning the language in which he sung, and of possessing his songs in their original form.
Mr. McPherson, I think, informs us he is possessed of the originals. Indeed, a gentleman has lately told me he had seen them in print; but I am afraid he has mistaken a specimen from Temora, annexed to some of the editions of the translation, for the whole works. If they are printed, it will abridge my request and your trouble, to the sending me a printed copy; but if there be more such my petition is, that you would be so good as to use your interest with Mr. McPherson to obtain leave to take a manuscript copy of them, and procure it to be done.
I would choose it in a fair, round hand, on fine paper, with a good margin, bound in parchments as elegantly as possible, lettered on the back, and marbled or gilt on the edges of the leaves. I would not regard expense in doing this. I would further beg the favor of you to give me a catalogue of the books written in that language, and to send me such of them as may be necessary for learning it.
These will, of course, include a grammar and dictionary. The cost of these, as well as the copy of Ossian, will be (for me), on demand, answered by Mr. Alexander McCaul, sometime of Virginia, merchant, but now of Glasgow, or by your friend Mr. Ninian Minzees, of Richmond, in Virginia, to whose care the books may be sent.
You can, perhaps, tell me whether we may ever hope to see any more of those Celtic (language) pieces published. Manuscript copies of any which are in print, it would at any time give me the greatest happiness to receive.
The glow of one warm thought is to me worth more than money.
I hear with pleasure from your friend that your path through life is likely to be smoothed by success.
I wish the business and the pleasures of your situation would admit leisure now and then to scribble a line to one who wishes you every felicity, and would willingly merit the appellation of, dear sir, Your friend and humble servant.
Footnote reference: INDO EUROPEAN LANGUAGE TREE
If not for the Piety of Thomas Jefferson and his reverence for God one might conclude him to be a pagan based on his love of Celtic and Gaelic myths and legends. But he was quite much more a man than his love for Ossian might define him.
Jefferson was a man who with George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and the Other signers of the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution stood head and shoulders over other men that citizens would call a president and try to put in the same category or class as our Founding Fathers.
And some of these presidents or just plain men, even killers, like some from these past 17 years- were simple men that belonged to secret societies. These men, some of which even I esteemed, were order takers as opposed to being the leaders of a nation and one of them having drafted but a few memoirs and signing or framing nothing of legislative significance themselves or done anything significant in their lives being in greater company to earn the title president,
So as you read the history of your real founding Fathers consider what kind of men it took to do the impossible and help a nation still forming to break away from the worlds greatest military power of its day.
To do this tt took real men of God and real men of faith who believed that men ought not to leave their fates in the hands of men they cannot see and our their lives to a government or legislative body and taxation they can no longer control.
With this I leave you to the reading of Ossian’s Poems. I thought you might be curious.

American Choral Music
The seventy-six works presented here are limited to a period beginning shortly after the Civil War and ending at 1922. The music selected reflects the diversity of choral music in the collections written during the later nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries and includes accompanied music, a cappella, sacred and secular music, and works for mixed choirs, for women’s and men’s ensembles, and for children’s choruses.
American Choral Music is a collaboration between the Library of Congress and the Choral Directors Association (ACDA). In 2007, the ACDA and the Library of Congress began a collaborative effort to create this Web site devoted to choral music that would present music in the public domain, available for users to download. The site serves to highlight the collections of sheet music in the Library of Congress and to advance and promote the performance of choral music.
Twenty-three composers’ works are represented, five of whom are women. Amy Marcy Cheney Beach (Mrs. H. H. A. Beach) was the first American woman to achieve widespread recognition as a composer. Mabel Wheeler Daniels composed The Desolate City, op. 21, among other significant works during her many stays as a Fellow at the MacDowell Colony. Margaret Ruthven Lang composed the song Ojalá,which brought her international attention at the Paris Exhibition of 1889. Gena Branscombe was a conductor and composer whose hymn Arms that have Sheltered Us was adopted by the Royal Canadian Navy in 1960. Patty Stair was a composer, organist and conductor.
Many of the composers represented here were from the Second New England School and were influential in music education as well as composition. George Whitefield Chadwick, often credited as the “dean of American Music,” reorganized the New England Conservatory.
Parker became dean of the School of Music at Yale; many of his manuscripts reside in the Music Division. Another member of the New England School was John Knowles Paine, the first professor of music at Harvard, and a composer who established the first music department at an American university. Amy Beach, Arthur Foote, and Edward MacDowell were also members of the Second New England School.
Also represented is Dudley Buck, an organist, conductor, and founding director of the Brooklyn Apollo Club’s male chorus, and Harvey Bartlett Gaul, a student of Dudley Buck. William W. Gilchrist founded the Mendelssohn Club. Peter C. Lutkin was a composer instrumental in support of a cappella singing, and a founder of the American Guild of Organists.
African-American music is represented with the compositions of R. Nathaniel Dett, Will Marion Cook, and Harry Burleigh. Other notable composers are Henry F. Gilbert, Arthur B. Whiting and Septimus Winner.
About Choral Music at the Library of Congress
The works in this presentation were selected from a variety of sheet music collections and publishers in the Music Division of the Library of Congress. The majority of the compositions chosen by the American Choral Directors Association are from the A. P. Schmidt Company Archives, one of the most valuable resources for the study of American choral music.
This archive of music occupies a special place in the history of American music publishing. In 1958, the publisher Summy-Birchard bought out the Arthur P. Schmidt Company, and both principals agreed to donate the Schmidt papers to the Library of Congress. Included in the large deposit of business papers and financial records were numerous containers of music manuscripts, including many holographs, and printed sheet music.
The A. P. Schmidt Company Archives contains over 300 boxes of manuscripts and published choral music, including the music of Arthur Foote, George Whitefield Chadwick, Horatio Parker, and John Knowles Paine.
Because Schmidt championed the music of women, the collection is also rich in the holdings of holographs and sheet music of Amy Beach, Mabel Wheeler Daniels, Margaret Ruthven Lang, Florence Newell Barbour, Marion Bauer, Helen Hopekirk, Gena Branscomb, and Anna Pricella Rischer.
