By the GENERAL ASSEMBLY of MARYLAND, December 13, 1796.

    RESOLVED unanimously, That the President of the United States merits the
everlasting gratitude of the people; that his profound wisdom in council, and
eminent exertions in the field, aided by the virtue and valour of his fellow-citizens,
triumphed over British invasion, and led his country through an arduous war to
victory and to happiness, establishing its independence by a revolution unsullied with a
crime, and distinguished for moderation, virtue and humanity; that his wise and

steady administration of the general government, promptness in suppressing domestic
insurrection, firmness in defeating improper exertions of foreign influence, and perseverance
in the system of neutrality, have continued to us those advantages which
result from a stable and free government, and have crowned us with the blessings of

peace, liberty and prosperity, whilst Europe and the Indies have been convulsed with?
the horrors of a dreadful and desolating war.

    RESOLVED unanimously, That his late paternal address, the result of much
reflection and experience, is eminently calculated, by its counsels, to secure the continuance
of the independence, peace, happiness and prosperity of our country, if
steadily pursued by his successors, and firmly adhered to by the people; wisely founding

the principles of our political conduct on the immoveable basis of morality and justice,
aided by the influence of religion, learning and virtue, in private life.

    RESOLVED unanimously, That to perpetuate this valuable present in the most
striking view to prosperity, it be printed and published with the laws of this session,
as an evidence of our approbation of its political axioms, and a small testimony of
the affection we bear to the precepts of Him, to whom, under Divide Providence,

we are principally indebted for our greatest political blessings.

    RESOLVED unanimously, That it is the earnest prayer of the legislature of
Maryland, that the President, in his contemplated retirement, may find all the
blessings of domestic happiness, and live to experience the salutary principles of his
administration, operating through his successors, to increase the independence, prosperity
and welfare of the American people.
