Clay was essentially, constructively, triumphantly American. The impetuous impulse of Clay was to let the youth, the vigor, the creative spirit of triumphant America sweep in untrammeled activity whithersoever it would, secure that a beneficent Providence would guide it. And in all these various phases Clay embodied the spirit of the West -- its nervous vigor, its all-attempting courage, its undying enthusiasm. - Gamaliel Bradford - p. [v].
