Glory to that Supreme Being

From The Founders, Religion and Government:




"If in the execution of an arduous Office I have been so happy as to discharge my duty to the Public with fidelity & success, and to obtain the good opinion of my fellow Soldiers & fellow Citizens; I attribute all the glory to that Supreme Being, who hath caused the several parts which have been employed in the production of the wonderful Events we now contemplate, to harmonize in the most perfect manner—and who was able by the humblest instruments as well as by the most powerful means to establish & secure the liberty & happiness of these United States."
~ George Washington, Letter to John Witherspoon (August 25, 1783)
