Excerpt from Minutes of the Annual Meeting of the North Carolina Society of Cincinnati, Held at Fayetteville, North Carolina, on April 10, 1915
It was here in 1789 that the Federal Constitution was ratified, there by making North Carolina a State of the American Union. The city bears the name of America's greatest friend - the incomparable champion of Liberty, the Marquis de Lafayette, who visited this city on a tour late in his life.
No city in North Carolina has a more splendid reputation for gener ous Southern hospitality, and, judging by the courtesies already extended to us, I am sure our stay will be most happy and pleasant.
