george washington's secret letters

"So what are you doing?"

"I don't know."

"I think I know what I'm doing."

"Are you sure?"

"Umm... I think."

"But you're not sure."

"No. I don't think anyone is."

"What about George Washington? I bet he knew what he was doing."

"I never met him."

"Me neither."

"Do you think he had a big ego?"

"I never met him."

"How did he die?"

"He died of laryngitis."

"That's a silly way to die."

"It was different back then."

"Was his wife there?"

"Yes, she was by his side."

"Did he love his wife?"


"How do you know? You never met him."

"Well, after his death, Martha Washington burned every letter George wrote to her, except two. Of these two letters, only one has ever been found."

"What did that letter say?"

"As Life is always uncertain, and common prudence dictates to every Man the necessity of settling his temporal Concerns— and whilst my Mind is calm and undisturbed, I carry your image with me. For it is your kindess and beauty that inspire my faith in humanity."
