Edwin A. Alderman in The Outlook:

"A document of democracy. . . . The unfolding of a career constituting a complete and inspiring definition of Americanism. . . .

'Here,' I have said to myself again and again, 'here is the voice of America's higher self. Here is a man who has unmistakably arrived at that point of view regarding our social and national destinies, which all intelligent men will reach by and by.""
