About the Book

This book contains Washington's Wit Modernly Writ, Solomon's New Leaf, and Thoughts from the Early Twenty-first Century. The first section presents paraphrases and summations of passages from the diaries, letters and speeches of George Washington from his teenage years to retirement.

The second section paraphrases Ecclesiastes, a book from The Holy Bible. When Ecclesiastes is quoted sporadically, which has often been done in entertainment media, the resulting tone is usually one hinting of negativity. Rolland E. Stroup, Jr. has attempted to lighten it up.

The third section provides observations, ideas and thoughts noted down by the author while living through the first few years of the Twenty-first Century.
