George Washington's Inagural Address (1789)

On April 30, 1789, President Washington said the following in his Inaugural Address:

"No people can be found to acknowledge and adore the invisible Hand which conducts the affairs of men more than the people of the United States... We ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a Nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right Heaven itself ordained."
