• I only look to the gracious protection of the Divine Being whose strengthening support I humbly solicit, and whom I fervently pray to look down upon us all. May it be among the dispensations of His Providence to bless our beloved country with honors and with length of days; may her ways beways of pleasantness, and all her paths be peace.

    Martin Van Buren (1969). “Martin Van Buren, 1782-1862: chronology-documents-bibliographical aids”
