He extends the story where Jefferson left off, weaving excerpts from other writings - notes, rough drafts, and private correspondence - into passages from the original autobiography. Jefferson reveals his grief over the death of his daughter, details his hotly contested election against John Adams (decided by the House of Representatives), expresses his thought on religion, and tells of his life at Monticello.""@en ;
