John Jay

A quote from John Jay

I recommend a general and public return of praise and thanksgiving to Him from whose goodness these blessings descend. The most effectual means of securing the continuance of our civil and religious liberties is always to remember with reverence and gratitude the source from which they flow.

— to the Committee of the Corporation of the City of New York [June 29th, 1826]
