Elias Boudinot - on Religion and Public Office

Elias Boudinot was a member of the Continental Congress and later a member of the first, second and third congresses. He was President of the Continental Congress from November 1782 to November 1783. He said:

"Be religiously careful in our choice of all public officers... and judge of the tree by its fruits."


"Good government generally begins in the family, and if the moral character of a people once degenerate, their political character must soon follow."
