Hand down your Religion…

11 Nov

“Reviewing the Troops” by Jack E. Dawson

“In return for your kind concern for my temporal and eternal happiness, permit me to assure you that my wishes are reciprocal; and that you may be enabled to hand down your Religion pure and undefiled to a Posterity worthy of their Ancestors is the prayer of, Gentlemen, your most obedient servant.” George Washington
