1790

Morris, Washington, Salomon

Herald Square Monument, Lorado Taft (Crunelle, Walker, Torrey) 1941.

Always worthwhile to stop, read and reflect on the quote from George Washington’s letter, written in 1790, to the Newport Hebrew Congregation on the Herald Square Monument.

“…the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support.”
