First published in 1811, his memoirs were not initially popular, probably because of their inflammatory remarks about public figures ranging from Albert Gallatin to Thomas Jefferson and his followers. Memoirs of a Life Chiefly Passed in Pennsylvania shows Graydons disdain for those he saw as seduced by power and money and leaves the reader with a critical view of some of the most popular figures of his time.
