Benjamin Rush on Elbridge Gerry

Day 234


About Elbridge Gerry
“He was a respectable young merchant, of a liberal education, and considerable knowledge. He was slow in his perceptions and in his manner of doing business, and stammering in his speech, but he know and embraced truth when he saw it. He had no local of state prejudices. Every part of his conduct in 1775, 1776, and 1777 indicated him to be a sensible, upright man, and a genuine friend to republican forms of government.”
