Almighty God, our heavenly Father upon earth, in this sacred presence we wait at the altar of prayer. Bless every one present with the mercy of a grateful heart. We are grateful today for our beloved Country and all that it means to us. We praise Thee for the sacrifice and service of our Forefathers who have made this day possible and historic. We pray Thee to bless the great fundamentals of our republic upon which it must ever rest for its glory and perpetuity. Stabilize more and more the great institutions of our democracy. Grant Thy richest blessings upon all our homes; may happiness, peace and prosperity radiate about every fireside.

Almighty God, graciously remember our notable President; do
Thou stimulate every effort that is being exercised in the cause of
world peace. May the time speedily come when the teachings of the
Master shall become coextensive with man throughout the wide
earth. Grant, dear Lord, Thy abundant blessings upon all who are
present; multiply unto them Thy mercies and keep them while many
days pass by and at the last claim us all as Thy children. And unto
Thee be eternal praises world without end. Through Jesus Christ
our Lord. Amen.

ADDRESS OF MRS. HORACE MANN TOWNER Regent, Mount Vernon Ladies' Association of the Union MR. PRESIDENT AND GUESTS:

In behalf of the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association of the Union, I take pleasure in welcoming you to the place where began that series of highly important events which culminated in the inauguration of General George Washington, as the first President of these United States.

1 The musical selections by Mr. Conrad Thibault were made possible through the courtesy of the National Broadcasting Company.

It was appropriate that an event which touched so closely the lives of George and Martha Washington should have taken place at Mount Vernon, the home which they so deeply loved. Today, one hundred and fifty years later, we look out upon the same river and upon the identical surroundings which Washington's skill and devoted care made possible. Every student of the life and character of George Washington realizes the far reaching influence which everything connected with his home at Mount Vernon had upon his career. It is not possible to estimate fairly, nor to understand clearly, his personality, without knowing something of the home in which he lived and died, and which was ever in his thoughts. The soldier and statesman found always at Mount Vernon his most enduring happiness.

We are happy that it is possible to have this commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the significant event of April 14, 1789, take place at Mount Vernon, in this home which we have had the privilege of restoring and preserving since 1859, not only for our own generation but for generations yet to come. Again, I welcome you. READING BY REPRESENTATIVE SOL BLOOM OF ADDRESSES
