PRESIDENT'S DAY -- (Extensions of Remarks - April 02, 2004)
HON. LAMAR S. SMITH
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
THURSDAY, APRIL 1, 2004
Mr. SMITH of Texas. Mr. Speaker, last month America celebrated President's Day. In recognizing a generic holiday, though, perhaps we didn't take the time to focus on our first President, George Washington. A friend, advisor, constituent and cousin, Frates Seeligson of San Antonio, wrote an article for the San Antonio Express-News that conveys the greatness of the individual called, "First in war, first in peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen." I hope my colleagues and others will enjoy Mr. Seeligson's trenchant observations.
