Excerpt from Biography of the Signers to the Declaration of Independence, Vol. 9
To censure a just pride of ancestry would be to lessen the incentives of virtue; and since he who was the idol of a people's worship has declared, even when holding up to scorn the folly of aristocracy, that the glory of our forefathers is a light to their posterity, it may be permitted to observe, that Richard Henry Lee traces his descent from one of the most ancient and distinguished families in Virginia.
