PRESIDENT'S DAY -- (Extensions of Remarks - April 02, 2004)

SPEECH OF
HON. LAMAR S. SMITH
OF TEXAS
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.
