Wickard, Secretary of Agriculture: "In this time of world struggle to retain the principles of freedom which he enunciated, it si fitting that we recall his public services as the writer of the Declaration of Independence, Governor of Virginia, Minister to France, Secretary of State, and as President of the United States. It is, however, equally important that we recognize his pioneering efforts in the field of agriclture. Eminently versatile and farsighted, he was among the first to become interested in many phases of the work now pursued by the United States Department of Agriculture." Good. Item #3337
