9019. WASHINGTON (George), Medallion of.—

That our own nation should entertain
sentiments of gratitude and reverence for
the great character who is the subject of your
medallion, is a matter of duty. His disinterested
and valuable services to them have rendered
it so; but such a monument to his memory by
the member of another community, proves a zeal
for virtue in the abstract, honorable to him
who inscribes it, as to him whom it commemorates.
* * * This testimonial in favor of
the first worthy of our country will be grateful
to the feelings of our citizens generally.—
To Daniel Eccleston. Washington ed. v, 213.
(W. 1807)
