Whatever else history may say about me when I’m gone, I hope it will record that I appealed to your best hopes, not your worst fears; to your confidence rather than your doubts. My dream is that you will travel the road ahead with liberty’s lamp guiding your steps and opportunity’s arm steadying your way.

In Pace

Diligite justitiam,
o judices terrae,
o judices terrae.

Justorum animae in manu Dei sunt,
et non tanget illos tormentum mortis.

Visi sunt oculis insapientium mori,
et aestimata est afflictio exi[s]tus illorum
— illi autem sunt in pace.

Tyrannus impius non habet spem:
et si quidem longae vitae erit,
in nihilum computabitur.

Princeps autem justus,
princeps autem justus,
illi autem sunt in pace
— in pace.
