George Washington's vision is recorded at the Library of Congress
"This afternoon, as I was sitting at this table engaged in preparing a dispatch, something seemed to disturb me. Looking up, I beheld standing opposite me a singularly beautiful female. So astonished was I, for I had given strict orders not to be disturbed, that it was some moments before I found language to inquire the cause of her presence. A second, a third and even a fourth time did I repeat my question, but received no answer from my mysterious visitor except a slight raising of her eyes.
"By this time I felt strange sensations spreading through me. I would have risen but the riveted gaze of the being before me rendered volition impossible. I assayed once more to address her, but my tongue had become useless, as though it had become paralyzed.
"A new influence, mysterious, potent, irresistible, took possession of me. All I could do was to gaze steadily, vacantly at my unknown visitor, Gradually the surrounding atmosphere seemed as if it had become filled with sensations, and luminous. Everything about me seemed to rarify, the mysterious visitor herself becoming more airy and yet more distinct to my sight than before. I now began to feel as one dying, or rather to experience the sensations which I have sometimes imagined accompany dissolution. I did not think, I did not reason, I did not move; all were alike impossible. I was only conscious of gazing fixedly, vacantly at my companion.
"Presently I heard a voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn,' while at the same time my visitor extended her arm eastwardly. I now beheld a heavy white vapor at some distance rising fold upon fold. This http://www.crystalinks.com/gw.html

Yes and I heard Leo Donofrio yesterday and he sounded dejected. I don’t know what to think, but I do know if it’s not resolved openly no good will come from it.
This is fiction, see:
Stupid website — crystals, UFOs, psychics, aliens, etc...
Is this what you had in mind for Free Republic... LOL...
The website is not important. If you read the vision it does resonate with our past and as I said we could be near the third peril with all that is going on today.
“including selfish ambition (with pretended patriotism,) collusion of powers, usurpation and precedence of usurpation, debt, foreign influence, and rank party politics.”
You’ve got that right, all the ducks are lined up.
You said — “The website is not important. If you read the vision it does resonate with our past and as I said we could be near the third peril with all that is going on today.”
I wouldn’t dignify the type of trash and garbage on that website by any reference using Washington’s name... If you have Washington’s name associated with trash and evil that the Bible says is worthy of death — it’s like dragging Washington’s name through the sewage line out to the cesspool...
It’s not worth even making a comment with the garbage association of that website...
So who was the woman?
Ping to read the thread later
I envisioned and angel while I was reading it.
I can go with Snopes.com that this report is fiction. Washington’s character lent itself to fictions of this sort. It is almost like people were desperate to believe. Besides, scholars are not sure if George could write with this elevated language. Most of his speeches were written by others, in particular, Alexander Hamilton.
That is NOT George Washington’s writing style; nor is it the style of anyone who wrote in the 18th century. Most of the formulations are entirely modern.
Washington wrote a few letters to two of my direct ancestors, so I’m familiar with his way of expressing himself.
Madison and Jay helped as well.
Supposedly this was written in the 19th Century, by someone who said GW said it. It is riveting, and I commend the author.
