Such personal aspiration demonstrates why the man was a giant among his noble colleagues. Liberty enlightening the world was his legacy.

How many honest men and women do we have in Washington today. I suspect that you could get them all together at one time in an I Hop for breakfast.

I do believe Washington was all he was claimed to be: a most honorable and great man.

Mary Grimes, Flint, MI

What a great man; so much like my Father

The yoke of necessity needs no extra burden, let those in power lay no more than that which is just upon man, lest honesty should fall from the way and all become corrupt. Many wanted the title of king to be granted to Washington.
