"[Roger] Sherman's parents were English people of the lower class and he can be said to have sprung from what is described as the common people. He had not the same confidence in the people that they reposed in him. He was an effective speaker whose power of debate lay in his never taking the floor unless he had something new to offer. Justice was his great forte and he was a lover of the truth."
"A man who resembles his distinguished great-grandfather, Roger Sherman, signer of the declaration, Gov. Simeon E. Baldwin talks on the dominant questions of the day. Every generation of Americans, he asserts, has its own point of view and, therefore, through the Supreme Court of the United States, makes the Constitution fit its own needs and conditions."
