"On this most auspicious day may the hallowed fires, which, through the United States, glowed so ardently on the altars of FREEDOM and INDEPENDENCE, during a most distressing, but victorious war, again rekindle, blaze to the heavens, spread light and joy over the western hemisphere, and flash terror across the Atlantic."
Doggett celebrates American religious liberty, "a complete toleration to every citizen freely to form, and seriously to promulge his own creed." Civil and Religious Liberty "walk hand in hand." American government is "the best in the world."
