John Albion Andrew (May 31, 1818 - October 30, 1867), 25th Governor of Massachusetts, authentic, autographed vintage two page handwritten quotation (AQS), used by Andrew in his 1865 Inaugural Address.

The quote reads: "Liberality towards all institutions of science and art which develop the mind and foster civilization is our highest interest, and must be our welcome duty. A commonwealth which spends freely, if wisely, in un- folding its material resources by artificial improvements, by cultivating the intellectual capacities of its people, by encouraging the ingenious to experiment, the aspiring to try their wings, and the studious to divine the mysteries of knowledge, must, of necessity, be prosperous and great. In such things, to be mean is to be poor ; to be generous is to be rich.

That which is only economy when applied to an individual, whose enterprise must be bounded by the opportunities of a single lifetime and a limited fortune, becomes narrow and short-sighted when applied to States having all the combined opportunities and powers of millions of people, of all their possessions, and of unlimited duration of time."

Approximately 8" x 10" in size. Quotation is signed by Andrew at the conclusion and also initialed in the upper right corner of the first page. Expected light overall age wear, otherwise good condition.
