Here’s the latest great find from the Toledo Library Archives. I’m not sure what the Helper is, but this creed is fantastic.
The Toledoan’s Creed
“I Serve-I Conquer”
I Believe in Toledo, the City of Real Values – the Nation’s natural gateway of commerce and travel; in the heart of great resources and markets; with unsurpassed railway, dock and harbor facilities, and the near-centre of population of the United States.
I believe in Toledo, the City of Real Opportunities – with its great institutions of art, education, religion and business; a “Going concern” in industry, government and social uplift; a Home city with rest and recreation for all, by river and lake; where it is worth while to live, rear children, invest money and life.
I Believe in Toledo, the City of Real Progress – modern in municipal equipment and spirit, aggressive in commercial activity and achievement, with inspiring visions and plans for tomorrow and a big chance for every man.
