A PROCLAMATION Massachusetts has many glories. The last one she would wish to surrender is the glory of the men who have served her in war. While such devotion lives the Commonwealth is secure. Whatever dangers may threaten from within or without she can view them calmly. Turning to her veterans she can say "These are our defenders. They are invincible. In them is our safeA PROCLAMATION Massachusetts has many glories. The last one she would wish to surrender is the glory of the men who have served her in war. While such devotion lives the Commonwealth is secure. Whatever dangers may threaten from within or without she can view them calmly. Turning to her veterans she can say "These are our defenders. They are invincible. In them is our safety."War is the rule of force. Peace is the reign of law. When Massachusetts was settled the Pilgrims first dedicated themselves to a reign of law. When they set foot on Plymouth Rock they brought the Mayflower Compact, in which, calling on the Creator to witness, they agreed with each other to make just laws and render due submission and obedience. The date of that American document was written November 11, 1620.After more than five years of the bitterest war in human experience, the last great stronghold of force, surrendering to the demands of America and her allies, agreed to cast aside the sword and live under the law. The date of that world document was written November 11, 1918.Now, therefore, in grateful commemoration of the unsurpassed deeds of heroism performed by the service men of Massachusetts, of the sacrifice of her people, sometimes greater than life itself, of the service rendered by every war charity and organization, to honor those who bore arms, to recognize those who supported the government, in accordance with the law of the current yearDownload Have Faith In Massachusetts Now!...

    I heard about this little book while reading the much more in depth biography of Coolidge by Amity Shales. This 140 page book is a collection of speeches given by Coolidge over a 5-6 year period while Coolidge was in the MA Senate and as governor of the state. It was put together by a campaign aid while Coolidge was running for President in '20-21 as a "propaganda" piece so that mid westerners would become more familiar with Coolidge. Call it a pre TV/Cable campaign advertisement. Probably very boring reading for someone not much interested in history but I enjoyed it. You get a better feel from reading actual speeches and correspondence as to a person's beliefs and worldview then you do by reading a second hand biography.
