Loving all. Lately concerned with the Presidents and you got Little Jemmy perfectly (well based on contemporary art). He had soulful eyes. And an immense brain. You caught all that. He was an early Democrat, although they called themselves Republican. Although he would be happy in the GOP today, or would have been until Reagan, GW Bush, Palin and Cruz led their intellectual revolution (the new Rushmore). Now I think he would have a great teaching job. George Washington University. History Dept. Congrats!
