1828 State of the Union Address

The 1828 State of the Union Address was written by John Quincy Adams, on December 2, 1828. It was read to both houses of Congress by a clerk on that day. He said, "If the enjoyment in profusion of the bounties of Providence forms a suitable subject of mutual gratulation and grateful acknowledgment, we are admonished at this return of the season when the representatives of the nation are assembled to deliberate upon their concerns to offer up the tribute of fervent and grateful hearts for the never failing mercies of Him who ruleth over all."
