Inscription.  
"Without going into a detailed history of my life, which would be too long, it will suffice to say to you in the language of an old soldier and of a citizen, that, in coming to America, my sole object has been to devote myself entirely to her welfare and glory, in using every exertion in my individual power to secure her freedom."
Casimir Pulaski to General Horatio Gates,
March 19, 1778
