For happily 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...<May the children of the stock of Abraham,who dwell in this land,continue to merit and enjoy the good will of the other inhabitants,whileeveryone shall sit in safety under hisown vine and fig-tree,and there shall be none to make him afraid.

George Washington August 17,1790
