Who “Stopped the Clock?”
Dr. Elisha Cullen Dick, of Alexandria, attended George Washington during his fatal illness. At the moment of the First President's death, the doctor cut the pendulum cords of the bedroom clock to mark the time. You'll want to mark a much happier day, the day you start saving at Liberty when you see how fast the figures grow! Save today. . . Safe tomorrow!
