By the GENERAL ASSEMBLY of MARYLAND, December 13, 1796.
RESOLVED unanimously, That the President of the
United States merits the
everlasting gratitude of the people; that his profound wisdom in council,
eminent exertions in the field, aided by the virtue and valour of his fellow-citizens,
triumphed over British invasion, and led his country through an arduous
victory and to happiness, establishing its independence by a revolution
unsullied with a
crime, and distinguished for moderation, virtue and humanity; that his
steady administration of the general government, promptness in suppressing
insurrection, firmness in defeating improper exertions of foreign influence,
in the system of neutrality, have continued to us those advantages which
result from a stable and free government, and have crowned us with the
peace, liberty and prosperity, whilst Europe and the Indies have
been convulsed with?
the horrors of a dreadful and desolating war.
RESOLVED unanimously, That his late paternal address,
the result of much
reflection and experience, is eminently calculated, by its counsels, to
secure the continuance
of the independence, peace, happiness and prosperity of our country, if
steadily pursued by his successors, and firmly adhered to by the people;
the principles of our political conduct on the immoveable basis
of morality and justice,
aided by the influence of religion, learning and virtue, in private life.
RESOLVED unanimously, That to perpetuate this
valuable present in the most
striking view to prosperity, it be printed and published with the
laws of this session,
as an evidence of our approbation of its political axioms, and a small

we are principally indebted for our greatest political blessings.
RESOLVED unanimously, That it is the earnest prayer
of the legislature of
Maryland, that the President, in his contemplated retirement, may
find all the
blessings of domestic happiness, and live to experience the salutary
principles of his
administration, operating through his successors, to increase the independence,
and welfare of the American people.
