Wise Government 12

Dear Mr. Jay, “We may, with a kind of grateful and pious exultation, trace the finger of Providence through those dark and mysterious events which first induced the states to appoint a general convention...thereby...laying a lasting foundation for tranquility and happiness, when...confusion and misery were coming rapidly upon us.” G. Washington

Short Prayer

7 ‘Two things I ask of you, Lord; do not refuse me before I die:
8 keep falsehood and lies far from me; give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread.

Or I may become poor and steal, and so dishonour the name of my God.
