SI RECTE FACIES; If you act rightly. This seems intended as an encouragement to a brave and steady conduct in defense of our liberties, as it promises to crown with honor, by the laurel wreath, those who persevere to the end in well-doing. The long duration of that honor is expressed by the monument of marble.
