The Washington Family by Edward Savage, 1789-1796
The Pennsylvania Gazette
PHILADELPHIA, May 7, 1789
"We hear from New York, that our beloved and illustrious President was proclaimed in a suit of broadcloth manufactured in the state of Connecticut. We hope, from this laudable example in the first and best of men, that we shall soon see industry and oeconomy fashionable in the United States. National dresses and manners, as well as principles, are absolutely necessary to our becoming an independent people."
