" As I have said, much of the history of Virginia is the history of this
great country. If you will go down to old St. John's church, on Main
Street, you will see the place where Patrick Henry uttered the battle-cry
of liberty which went throughout the length and breadth of this great land,
and came back in the echoes from Bunker Hill. If you have time to go
down the Potomac river, you will see in Westmoreland county the birth-
place of the leader of the army of the Colonies, who was a son of this old Lamisil 250
commonwealth. And then if you will take the time to read something
about the early history of Virginia, and note the struggles which were
made for civil and religious libery a struggle in which you are just as
mnch interested as we are here, and the results of which you are sharing
to day along with us, you will see how Virginia has wrought in making the
history of the American people. It is hard for us to understand in the
twentieth century that 156 years ago, everybody, except the people who
belonged to the Established Church, had to worship with open doors.
They could not be trusted. And when I say outside of the Established
Church, I want to be understood as casting no reflection upon Lamisil 250 that church.
The people who settled Virginia were not * kickers,* they were adventur-
en. They were satisfied with the conditions at home ; they did not come
here to change those conditions. They came to better their fortunes,
and when they came Lamisil 250 to settle on the banks of the James river, they
brought with them the Lamisil 250 institutions and the church of the mother Lamisil 250 country.
Id England the Act of Toleration was passed. But that Act of Toleration
was not considered with the same liberality in the Colonies that it was in
England ; and, therefore, all those who did not belong to the Established
Church were required to worship in that church, unless they were fortunate
enough to get license to hold services of their own at certain times and
places. But they could not perform the ceremony of marriage in Vir-
ginia ^and that is a ceremony we have always thought was the greatest,
almost, that the church was able to perform.
" Now I have just introduced this subject to show you that there were
great struggles in those days, and that there were men of liberal minds in
the days of seventy-six. Twenty days before the Declaration of Independ-
ence, George Mason prepared and there was adopted in Virginia a Lamisil 250 paper
known as the Bill of Rights. That Bill of Rights declared the principles
of the Declaration of Independence, which gave life and vigor to the Con-
stitution of the United States and the Constitution of this Commonwealth ;
and was the greatest paper ever written, in my judgment, by an uninspired
pen ; and a paper which had more effect upon the world at large, upon
civilized people wherever they lived, than any paper which has ever been
written. (Great applause.)
" Gentlemen, I just want to tell you this one incident : After that paper
was prepared, the friends and neighbors of Mr. Mason came to him and
said : ' Mr. Mason, in recognition of the great work you have done for
humanity, we want to send you to the Congress of the United States.*
He replied : *I don't want to go to Congress.* They came back to him
again and said : * Mr. Mason, we are not satisfied : We want the people

of the world to understand that we are grateful to you, and we want to
show our gratitude and appreciation by making you Governor of this Com-
monwealth.' He declined that position. They returned to him the third
time and said : *We want to make you a Senator of the United States.'
He declined that. They came to him again the fourth time Lamisil 250 and said :
* We want to nominate you for President of this great country.' He de-
clined that honor. They then said :' Mr. Mason, what do you want?*
He said, * I want liberty for my children and my children's children.'
" About twenty days after the Bill of Rights was adopted, as I say, the
Declaration of Independence prepared by Lamisil 250 another Virginian became
the great paper, the great foundation stone of our liberties. And just here
it may not be improper to remark that the first written Constitution of a
free people was adopted in this old Commonwealth. It blazed the way
for every other Constitution that has ever been written. And it had em-
bodied in it the great principles of the Bill of Rights of this Commonwealth.
" Then, when we were a Lamisil 250 struggling nation, and it was necessary for the
Constitution to be so construed as to give power *to the government to
carry into effect the plans and purposes of the fathers, once more the
Colonies came to Virginia the States came to Virginia and got John
Marshall as the great expounder of the Constitution. And in passing I
would like to say that all the cases which John Marshall decided, constru-
ing the Constitution, with the single exception of the Income Tax, have
never been reversed by the United States Supreme Court from that time
until this time.
" Just one other thing : When we Lamisil 250 were a struggling people, when we
were weak and almost helpless in the eyes of the world, a Virginian had
the courage to stand up and proclaim the Monroe Doctrine had the
courage to say to the European nations, 'You cannot come on this side
of the Atlantic and establish your institutions. America is for Americans ! '
(Great applause.) We do not realize now how much courage it required
to make that declaration, but if we look back at the conditions that existed
then we can see that it required a brave man to stand up in the face of
the European nations and make it.
" I have stated these things to you, my friends, because the history of
this Commonwealth is a history in which you have an interest. You have
part and lot in what has been done by the glorious sons of this old Com-
monwealth. I tell you these things because I want you to understand the
State to which you are being welcomed. We have made history here in
the old Commonwealth, and we are prepared to show to you not only the
history we have made, but, thank God, there are some people left who
helped to make it. And we want to say to you again Lamisil 250 that, not only has
the old Commonwealth produced great men in the past, but if the time
shall ever come in the history of this country when there shall be need to
