JEFFERSON AND HIS COLLEAGUES 

CHAPTER I.  PRESIDENT JEFFERSON'S COURT 

The rumble of President John Adams's coach had hardly died away
in the distance on the morning of March 4,1801, when Mr.  Thomas
Jefferson entered the breakfast room of Conrad's boarding house
on Capitol Hill, where he had been living in bachelor's quarters
during his Vice-Presidency.  He took his usual seat at the lower
end of the table among the other boarders, declining with a smile
to accept the chair of the impulsive Mrs.  Brown, who felt, in
spite of her democratic principles, that on this day of all days
Mr.  Jefferson should have the place which he had obstinately
refused to occupy at the head of the table and near the
fireplace.  There were others besides the wife of the Senator from
Kentucky who felt that Mr.  Jefferson was carrying equality too
far.  But Mr.  Jefferson would not take precedence over the
Congressmen who were his fellow boarders.
