“On Saturday the 22nd of May at 12 o’clock P.M. Mrs. Washington terminated her well spent life…..She was the worthy partner of the worthiest of men, and those who witnessed their conduct could not determine which excelled in their different characters, both were so well sustained on every occasion. They lived an honor and a pattern to their country, and are taken from us to receive the rewards—promised to the faithful and the just.”
