Every man is said to have his peculiar ambition. Whether it be
true or not, I can say for one that I have no other so great as
that of being truly esteemed of my fellow men, by rendering
myself worthy of their esteem. How far I shall succeed in
gratifying this ambition, is yet to be developed.

(First Political Announcement, March 9, 1832)
