The 1791 State of the Union Address was given on October 25, 1791, in Philadelphia. It was the third one given by the first president. It was given by President George Washington, to a joint session of Congress, to the United States House of Representatives and Senate. He had this to say, "I meet you upon the present occasion with the feelings which are naturally inspired by a strong impression of the prosperous situations of our common country, and by a persuasion equally strong that the labors of the session which has just commenced will, under the guidance of a spirit no less prudent than patriotic, issue in measures conducive to the stability and increase of national prosperity."[1]
