(February 22, 1732 – December 14, 1799)

(Fox News) – A letter on God and the Constitution written by George Washington
is up for sale after spending decades in a private collection.

The letter to Richard Peters, speaker of the Pennsylvania Constitution, is signed Sept. 7, 1788, and praises God for the ratification of the U.S. Constitution.

Written a week after Washington told Alexander Hamilton that he would likely accept calls to assume the presidency, the letter came at a time when the Constitution was under attack. Some states wanted to hold a second
Convention that may have undermined the Constitution.

The letter, which is priced at $140,000, is up for sale at Ardmore, Pa.-based historical document dealer The Raab Collection.

On this day in 1945, during World War II, the Yalta Agreement was
signed by
U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt (center) British Prime 
Minister Winston Churchill (left) and Soviet leader Josef Stalin. 


The leaders agreed to demand Germany’s unconditional surrender 
and began plans for a post-war world. Most of the agreements were 
initially kept secret, but the revelations of the conference particulars became controversial after Soviet-American wartime cooperation degenerated into the Cold War.
