1825 State of the Union Address

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 1825 State of the Union Address was given by John Quincy Adams, the sixth president of the United States. It was given to the 19th United States Congress, on Tuesday, December 6, 1825. He said, "In taking a general survey of the concerns of our beloved country, with reference to subjects interesting to the common welfare, the first sentiment which impresses itself upon the mind is of gratitude to the Omnipotent Disposer of All Good for the continuance of the signal blessings of His providence, and especially for that health which to an unusual extent has prevailed within our borders, and for that abundance which in the vicissitudes of the seasons has been scattered with profusion over our land." He ended with, "And may He who searches the hearts of the children of men prosper your exertions to secure the blessings of peace and promote the highest welfare of your country." [1]
