Independence Day Food for Thought

Valley Forge

The General is sorry to be informed that the foolish and wicked practice of profane cursing and swearing, a vice here to fore little known in the American Colonies, is growing into fashion. He hopes the officers will by example as well as influence endevor to stop it, and that both they and the men will reflect that we can have little hope of the blessing from Heaven upon our arms if we continue to insult It by our impiety and folly.

Commanding General
