“The General is sorry to be informed that the foolish, and wicked practice, of profane cursing and swearing (a vice heretofore little known in an American Army) is growing into fashion. He hopes the officers will, by example, as well as influence, endeavor to check it […] added to this, it is a vice so mean and low, without any temptation, that every man of sense, and character, detests and despises it.“
George Washington, August 3rd 1776
