First in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen, [President George Washington] was second to none in humble and enduring scenes of private life. Pious, just, humane, temperate, and sincere; uniform, dignified, and commanding; his example was edifying to all around him as were the effects of that example everlasting.

Henry Lee III
Ninth Governor Of Virginia, Congressman
